1. A circle centered at A with radius 10 is externally tangent to a circle centered at B with radius 7. A line that is externally tangent to both circles intersects line AB at C. Find the length BC.

1. By similar triangles, BC = 13*10/7 = 130/7.

 

3. By similar triangles, YZ = 14^2/8 = 49/2.

1)  A circle centered at A with radius 10 is externally tangent to a circle centered at B with radius 7. A line that is externally tangent to both circles intersects line AB at C. Find the length BC.

 

BC = 39.66666672   indecision

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

2)           AB = 2        x = 1       CD = 4.5     y = 2.25    

 

             r = sqrt ( xy ) = sqrt ( 1 * 2.25 ) = 1.5   indecision

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

3)           XY = 14            WX = 8

 

tan(Y) = 8 / 14        ∠Y = 29.7448813°

 

XZ = tan(Y) * WX = 4.571428571

 

YZ = XY - XZ = 9.428571429

YZ ≈ 9.428      indecision
