geometry problems

1. For some positive real number r, the line x + y = r is tangent to the circle x^2 + y^2 = r. Find r.

2. Find the center of the circle passing through the points (-1,0), (1,0), and (3,1). Express your answer in the form "(a,b)."

3. A line with slope 3 is 2 units away from the origin. Find the area of the triangle formed by this line and the coordinate axes.

4. Find the maximum value of y/x over all real numbers x and y that satisfy (x - 3)^2 + (y - 3)^2 = 6.

Re: geometry problems

Hi mathstudent2000;








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.
