If you can map one figure onto another using similarity transformations, then the figures are similar. 


1) Translate the center of the circle with radius q to the center of the circle with radius t.


Translations are considered to be an isometry, a specific type of transformation where the size and shape remain unaffected.


2) Dilate the circle with radius q about C by a factor of t/q
