Find the equation of the circle with radius sqrt2 tangent to the line x+y=3 and having its center on the line y=4x

Reiny
let the centre be (a,b)
but (a,b) lies on y = 4x
so b = 4a
and we can call our centre (a, 4a)
so the equation of our circle is
(xa)^2 + (y4a)^2 = 2
we know the distance from (a,4a) to
x+y3 = 0 is √2
a + 4a  3/√(1+1) = √2
5a  3 = 2
5a = 5
a = 1
so the circle equation is
(x1)^2 + (y4)^2 = 2
