How do we do this? Set equal equations together??

- analytic geometry helps are appreciated -
**drwls**, Friday, March 1, 2013 at 10:23amr^1/2 is the radius of the circle.

r is the y-intercept of the line

y = r - x.

It is tangent to the circle if

r^2 = 2*(sqrtr)^2

(from Pythagorean rule)

Therefore r^2 = 2r

r = 2

Plot the two functions

y = 2-x and

x^2 + y^2 = 2

You will see that there is tangency at

(sqrt2, sqrt2)

**Anonymous**, Friday, July 19, 2013 at 6:13pmYes set the two equations equal to each other. You then get that r = 2. I'm not going to tell you all of the work because drwls has already answered.
