What are the equations of the lines through (-5,-3) and passing at distance 2sqrt5 from (5,7)

Please I really need your help. I do not know how to do this problem.

  • Math,Geometry -

    you are looking for two of the radii of the circle (x+5)^2 + (y+3)^2 = r^2

    r^2 equals the square of the distance from (-5,-3) to (5,7), minus (2√5)^2

    the radii are tangent to
    (x-5)^2 + (y-7)^2 = 20

    the points of tangency (intersections of the two circles) will give the points needed (along with (-5,-3))to write the equations of the lines
