The equation of an ellipse is
\[\frac{x^2}{a^2} + \frac{y^2}{b^2} = 1,\]
A circle is drawn so that it is contained in the ellipse, its center lies on the x-axis, and it touches the ellipse only at the point (a,0). If a = b = 5, find the radius of the circle.

The radius is 5 because a^2 and b^2 will be 25 and you multiply it to the other side and take the square root
