105 cannot be their least common factor, as it has its own smaller factors. Though I think the question has been garbled, since I cannot understand "two pairs of numbers of 105"

surely you know what "complex" means and also the molecular level, as opposed to the more large-scale aspects. You know about molecules, right? So, given those ideas, and a little thought (and maybe some help from google) what do you think?

x^2+y^2+3x-8y+16=0 is the circle (x + 3/2)^2 + (y-4)^2 = 9/4 So, the center of the circle is at (-3/2,4) The distance to the line 4x+3y-12=0 is thus |4(-3/2) + 3(4) - 12|/√(4^2+3^2) = 6/5 So, the desired circle is (x + 3/2)^2 + (y-4)^2 = 36/25
