Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Get rid of the radical and clean up your numbers. So, first, notice (24)^2=(6)^2=36. Also, \[(3y)^2=((3+y))^2=(1)^2(3+y)^2=(3+y)^2\]So,\[\sqrt{(24)^2+(3y)^2}=10 \rightarrow 36+(3+y)^2=100\]Subtract 36 from both sides\[36+(3+y)^2=100 \rightarrow (3+y)^2=64 \rightarrow 3+y = \pm \sqrt{64}=\pm 8\]That is,\[3+y=\pm8 \rightarrow y = 3 \pm 8\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hello help, Two circles in the same plane are internally tangent if they intersect in exactly one point and the intersection of their interiors is not empty. Look at the attachment of the geometry of your problem. The smaller circle (x^2+y^2=2) is inside the larger one, and they intersect at one point. You have to do two things to show internal tangency. 1) Show that the circles touch at one point only 2) Show that the smaller circle lies inside, not outside, the larger circle. Okay, to answer part 1, we have to find the points of intersection of the two circles. Since we had a look at the geometry of the situation beforehand, we're expecting the circles to intersect at only one point. So, finding your points of intersection is a matter of solving simultaneous equations: \[x^2+y^2=2\]and\[(x3)^2+(y3)^2=32\]Take the first equation and solve for y:\[y=\pm \sqrt{2x^2}\]We should test this by substituting into your second equation. If you take the positive square root first and substitute into the second equation, you get\[(x3)^2+(\pm \sqrt{2x^2}3)^2=32\]which boils down to solving\[\sqrt{2x^2} \pm (x+2)=0\]that is\[\sqrt{2x^2}=\mp (x+2) \rightarrow 2x^2=(x+2)^2\]Expand the righthand side, collect your terms and solve the quadratic to get\[x=1\]There is only one solution to this equation, even though we've considered both possible y's. So let's find the yvalue that goes with this xvalue on our circles. You can choose either of the initial equaations to start, so choose the simplest one,\[(1)^2+y^2=2 \rightarrow y^2=1 \rightarrow y=\pm 1\]Now, although any one of these two possibilities satisfies the equation we just used, only y=1 will satisfy the second circle equation as well when x=1:\[((1)3)^2+((1)3)^2=20 \neq32\]\[((1)3)^2+((1)3)^2=(4)^2+(4)^2=32\]So your point of intersection is (1,1) (there is only one). End of first part.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you need to show that the smaller circle (one with smaller radius) lies entirely inside the larger. If one circle touches another circle at only one point, it must be the case that ALL of the circle is either inside the larger circle, or outside. If this wasn't the case, the smaller circle would cut the larger circle in more than one place (i.e. two) and part of the smaller circle would be inside the larger circle, and part of it outside. You can see this for yourself by drawing two circles that intersect at two points. All you have to do is pick a point other than (1,1) on your small circle, and show that the distance between that point and the center of the large circle is LESS THAN the radius of the large circle (which is sqrt{32}=4sqt{2}).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, you know that the point (1,1) is on the smaller circle since the lefthand side of the small circle's equation gives, \[x^2+y^2=1^2+1^2\]which is indeed equal to 2, the righthand side. Now, if the distance between this point and the center of the larger circle is less than the radius of the larger circle, since we only have one point of intersection, it must be the case that ALL other points EITHER lie inside or outside the circle. If this point, (1,1) is inside, then so are all the others. We have for the distance, \[d^2=(13)^2+(13)^2=8 \rightarrow d=\sqrt{8}=2\sqrt{2}\]But the radius of the larger circle is \[4\sqrt{2}\]Since \[2\sqrt{2}<4\sqrt{2}\]it must be that (1,1) lies INSIDE the larger circle. Therefore, the entire small circle lies inside the larger circle. Since the smaller circle touches the larger one at one point only, and the smaller circle lies inside the larger, it must be that the circles are internally tangent.
