In the complex plane, the graph of \(\left | z-3\right |=2\left | z+3 \right |\) intersects the graph of \(\left | z\right |=k\) in exactly one point. Find all possible values of \(k.\)

Enter all possible values, separated by commas.

\(z \) is a complex number by the way.

Here is a hint:

Change z to a+bi. Since the magnitude is the square root of a^2+b^2, solve for that.

To make myself more clear, let me show you how to do the left side, and then you can to the right side.

Once we have changed z to a+bi, we can subtract 3 from a. This will give us (a-3)+bi.

Now, squaring a and b, we get

a^2-6a+9+b^2 for the inside of the square root. Therefore, the left side is \(\sqrt {a^2-6a+9+b^2}\).

Now, try to do the right side, and solve the equation.
