Hey! Okay, I'm working with a two circles and I need to find the standard form of another circle that is circumcentered to the first and tangent to the second. I have the slope of the line and the standard formula's of the given triengles but I don't know how to find the other point on the 2nd circle.

Okay, the circle on the bottom is the one that needs to be circumscribed and tangent to the other one on the outter side.

I know the standard formulas for the two circles here but I need the standard fromuls for the circle that circumscribes the bottom circle and is tangent to the top

kinda like this?

yes!:)

- amistre64

whats equations of your circles then

- amistre64

you mention triangles, care to ellaborate?

- anonymous

well....not exactly triengles. The tengents of a circle....the line that intersects it at only one point.
Top circle is....81=(x+4)^)squared)+(y-1)^squared
bottom= 64=(x+2)squared+(y+4)squared

I'm so lost!

- amistre64

lets equate these 2 and see where they intersect

- anonymous

but they overlap, no?

- amistre64

if there is a solution to equating them then yes...so lets check it :)

- amistre64

if i did it right; they overlap at the line 4x-10y=20.... and that is providing i didnt mess it up lol

- anonymous

i have the answer and it says the equation is 484=(x+2)squared+ (y+4)squared

heres your 2 circles plotted on the graph

- amistre64

and this would be your answer once the number are input

if what you told me is right; then the new equation should equal between 196 and 225
