A rectangle contains two circles of radius 6 that are each tangent to the rectangle in exactly 3 points. If the distance between the centers of the circles is 10, what is the area of the rectangle?
Please help me
The first sentence indicate that the width of the rectangle = 2 x 6 = 12.
2nd sentence indicates that length = 10 + 6 + 6 = 22
Area = 22 x 12 = 264
Great image Hectictar. l highly reccomend you visualize all you geometric problems, it really helps you able to do problems such as area and volmue.
