Circle and Parabola
The center of a circle lies at the focus of a parabola. The circle is tangent to the parabola's directrix. The circle and the parabola intersect at the points (-7, 6) and (5,6). Find all possible centers of the circle.
SolutionIn order to make it feasible for teachers to use these problems in their classwork, no solutions are publicly visible, so students cannot simply look up the answers. If you would like to view the solutions to these problems, you must have a Virtual Classroom subscription.
Two circles intersect at the points (-3 5) and (-3, -3). The radius of one circle is 4 units, and the distance between the centers is 5 units. Find the radius of the other circle.
A circle is tangent to the lines y = 2x + 1 and 2y = -x + 1. Its center lies on the x - axis. What are the possible equations of the circle?
