Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0given 3 circles, the circumference of the 2nd circle cuts the centre of circle1 at O1, while the centre of the 3rd circle is formed between the upper intersection of 1st and 2nd circle, with its circumference cuts through centre of 1st circle. radius of 2nd circle is unknown.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and a str8 line is formed between O1 and O2, with P be the right intersection of 3rd circle with the line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can define an angle using o1,o2 and oi,1 so that o1,p is findable to me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or really P = (2a,0) in this case :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1344615575595:dw im sure we could come up with something

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can determine a general ratio; and when given specifics we can fill them in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i will need to come out with 3 ratios for O1P < O1O2, O1P = O1O2, and O1P > O1O2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because radius for circle 2 is not fixed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1o2 is solid, so do we assume we know the position of o2 relative to the other solid objects?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0erm o2 is the centre of 2nd circle. lol i drawed the dot too big i guess.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its an imaginary centre because radius 2 is unknown.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but centre of circle 2 will be placed same level with circle 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1344616423539:dw well, you do have 3 points of contact for the circle2 i believe

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the half the length from 03 to 0'3 would be known (y) and half the distance from 01 to P can be known (x) y^2 = x*(distance from p/2 to 03)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1344616835067:dw y^2 = x*c ; x+c = radius from 01 to 02

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the ratio then is.... 2x : r'

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12x : x+c , and since y^2 = xc; c=y^2/x 2x : x + y^2/x 2x : (x^2 + y^2)/x
