**Topquark**, Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 8:48pmLet O1 & O2 be the centres of the two circles. From P draw a tangent PT meeting the second circle at T. Likewise RS//PT is tangent to the first circle. From rt. triangle PTO2, sin(TPO2)= TO2/PO2 = 1/3. The distance between RS & PT = PR*sin(TPO2)= 4*1/3 = 4/3
