Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's only one unique circle passing through (1,0) and (0,1) right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the smallest circle is the one that has the line connecting the two points as the diameter.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3all other circles have this line as their chord which means that their diameters are longer that this line. An extreme example:dw:1357382299966:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you draw a line segment, you'd get a segment with length \(\sqrt 2\). That is the smallest segment (and the only) possible. Now you get a triangle. Draw a circle around that triangle and that would be \(x^2 + y^2 = 1\).dw:1357382531256:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I just want to know why should they be diameterically opp..to satisfy the eq.nothing else :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[h^2 + k^2 2k+1=h^2  2h + 1 + k^2\]\[2h + 1 = 2k +1 \iff h =k\]So \((0,0)\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the concept is pretty straightforward. Look at this diagramdw:1357382709667:dw The line you see is the line connecting (1,0) and (0,1) And i've drawn two circles that pass though the two points. The line drawn is a chord for the bigger circle which means that it's diameter is bigger that the line, ok? But look at the other circle which has the line as the diameter. It's obviously smalller than the other circle but also smaller than any other circle that can be drawn though those two points (again because chords are smaller than diameters)dw:1357383015575:dw So, the circle you're looking for is the circle that has that line for it's diameter. Simple.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0another way to think is that you're looking for the smallest right triangle \(ABC\) where \(\angle B\) is the right angle as well as the center of the circle and the circle passes through \(A\) and \(C\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I didn't say they were diametrically opposite =/

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They are diametrically perpendicular...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3that's absolutely wrong. I can draw a smaller circle!dw:1357384070442:dw you see the point!? this right here the smallest circle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So then it's\[(x  0.5)^2 + (y  0.5)^2 = 0.25\]?

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So that's the trick. You make them diametrically opposite
