I have a circle with a diameter of 500mm, I have 3 rings inside each x(62.5mm) from the centre with x being the ring number from the indide. I need to fit 16 1mm dots on the first ring, 46 on the second and 61 on the third. How far away should each of the dots be from each other on each ring if they are all to be equal distance from each other on each individual ring?

I figured 1.25 for ring 1.

1.7 for ring 2

and 1.93 for ring 3?

Please tell me if i am mistaken

Change of plan, i'm very sorry.

I need the same but in the rings are x(5) from the center the rest is still the same.

Not sure how the outer circle comes into play....but....

The first circle will have a circumference of 62.5 pi mm .....so if there are 16 equally spaced dots each should be spaced 62.5 * pi / 16 ≈ 12.27 mm apart

The second circle has a circumference of 62.5 * 2 * pi mm = 125 pi mm .....with 46 equally spaced dots each should be spaced 125 pi / 46 ≈ 8.537 mm apart

The last circle will have a circumference of 62.5 * 3 * pi = 187.5 pi mm .....61 equally spaced dots should be spaced 187.5 pi / 61 ≈ 9.657 mm apart
