Did you notice that your first two lines are parallel ?
so if our circle touches both of those, it must have its centre on x+2y = 3.
now you have the question:
a circle has its centre on x + 2y = 3 and is tangent to y=2x5 or 2x  y  5 = 0
and it is the same question as the one I answered for you on Tuesday
