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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well....not exactly triengles. The tengents of a circle....the line that intersects it at only one point. Top circle is....81=(x+4)^)squared)+(y1)^squared bottom= 64=(x+2)squared+(y+4)squared

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if there is a solution to equating them then yes...so lets check it :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if i did it right; they overlap at the line 4x10y=20.... and that is providing i didnt mess it up lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if what you told me is right; then the new equation should equal between 196 and 225
