 Question 305478: I'm not sure if this is too big a question but if someone could at least point me in the right direction I'd appriciate it. Place 3 circles with the same radius, r, with their centers on a horizontal in such a way that the middle circle intersects the left and right circles in exactly 1 point each(like 3 coins, touching, all in a row). Draw a line from the center of the left circle that is tangent to the right circle. This line intersects the middle circle in 2 points. Find the length of the line segment connecting these 2 points in terms of r. Ok so I have the picture fine I'm pretty sure about that. In the middle circle i tried drawing radii from the center to the points of the segment i have to find the length of, and i know it's an isosceles triangle but that doesn't help me find the length of that segment. I've also tried right triangles in different areas but nothing i have come up with has helped...once again I'd really appriciate it if someone could at least steer me in the right direction. Thanks!
