Re: Circles #3The drawing will make it clear but I can not get it in there. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #27 20140131 05:10:23

Re: Circles #3I think the diagram here does what you wanted in post 14. I need to think some more about whether it is ok or a cheat. You see as the equal property holds there's a danger with trying to construct a diagram that genuinely shows this as opposed to one that just looks right.

Re: Circles #3No it doesn't work. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #30 20140131 12:01:51
Re: Circles #3That is not a big deal, we can change that line to: Draw a circle touching EH and EG and H and G only. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: Circles #3Nice scenery, looks like Florida.
I think that is the easiest part, they are constructed to coincide. See the other thread. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
