**MathMate**, Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 9:51amIf a circle is tangent to both axes, then its centre lies along the line

y=x (for circle in first or third quadrant) or

y=-x (for circle in second or fourth quadrant).

Make your choice of quadrant(s) and solve the system of equations

3x+y=6

y=x

or

3x+y=6

y=-x
