has exactly j points in common with the boundary of ABC (this \boundary"

consists of the line segments AB, BC, CA). Is it possible to nd a circle C7

with 7 points in common with the boundary of ABC?

(Just use trial and error for this question - draw lots of circles and triangles

how do I do this?

Each line can intersect any circle in at most two points.

The three lines can thus intersect a circle in at most 6 points.
