Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so basically what I need to do is find the radius of the circles and square it but that's all I have so far I think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well circle B lies on (1,9) and (1,1).....circle D lies on (7,2) and (7,6).... now to see if they are the same you must subtract the y1 by y2 on both circles....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3aren't all circles similar? i keep seeing this question but it never makes any sense to me they are similar because they are circles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I proved it a while back that all circles are similar but I think another easy way mentioned by a friend of mine was showing that the ratio to the circumference to the diameter is pi, therefore making the circles similar :P
