I need help with tangent circles.Can anyone help me with this problem and show me the steps it takes to do it? #2 20051208 10:12:41
Re: I need help with tangent circles.I don't think that anyone can tell you precisely how to do it. You must have a decent imagination and a good understanding of geometry. With that said: Last edited by irspow (20051208 10:13:13) #3 20051209 02:36:41

Re: I need help with tangent circles.Good catch John, I missed the 2x^2 term equaling the r^2 and not the radius. Do I get partial credit? It should have read: #7 20051209 10:10:03
Re: I need help with tangent circles.irspow and John E. Franklin together solved your problem, giving a final answer of 3 + √8 square inches. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
