I had seen it, but I forgot what it was. I will find it.

Fits my philosophy perfectly, don't you think.

You seem to have done it with a difference equation.

I do not.

Is the answer for the new GG thread 36*sqrt(2)?

Nope, you will need geogebra to get the answer.

Well young fellow, what gave you the idea that the circles were interior tangential?

Why wouldn't they be? And besides, point B is inside the circle, so it can either be internally tangential or not tangential at all.

Why wouldn't they be?

Because it is highly dependent on what shape you use for the rhombus.

Well, one is certainly inside the other.

It took me about 3 hours to come to that conclusion after working with geogebra on the other type of tangency. You see that is the real point of CAS' and geogebra and experimental math. It is the point that even Doron does not know.

I was just saying. Not spotting something in geometry is often a problem for me.

That is why:

Geogebra, geogebra, it is the man

If it can not do it

nobody can!

Yay geogebra!

Now we need some cheerleaders to sing that.

You do not need to! Sort of levels the playing field.
