A common tangent to two general parabolas 2015-11-15
Kind pose la question :
Hi, I want to find the common tangent of two general parabolas, but i don't know if it's possible or not.
If it's possible, please make a tutorial.

The first parabola equation : Ax^2 + Bxy + Cy^2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0.
The second parabola equation : Gx^2 + Hxy + Iy^2 + Jx + Ky + L = 0.

I need this because i want to find the equation of Beloch fold. (Huzita - Hatori 6th axiom) However if you know any other method to find Beloch folds equation, I am open for any suggestions.

A triangle and an incircle 2013-05-09
Max pose la question :
On my Geometry Test about tangent, chord, and secant lengths, my teacher gave an extremely difficult problem.
It was a Circle inscribed in a Triangle with all triangle sides being tangents and lengths were given. My class was told to find the length of each segment of the line. The points on each line were the vertexes of the triangle, and the point where the line hits the circle.
Please explain how someone could do this.

Two tangent circles and common tangents 2008-12-01
Alan pose la question :
Radius of big circle 30cm, radius of small circle 10 cm. From the diagram, the radius from the tangent do not form a semicircle but at an angle. Find the perimeter of the band around both the circle. May need to use trigonometry to find reflex angle AOB, CMD and get the major arc length AB and minor arc length CD

How many parallel tangents may a circle have? 2008-09-29
Manish pose la question :
how many parallel tangents may a circle have? the text book shows two.but a circle can have infinite tangents.then why not parallel tangents coz theoretically each tangent have a parallel tangnts then no. of parallel tangent a circle may have is equals to half of the infinity i.e. infinity..

How many bricks I can place around a 26-inch circle? 2008-05-22
Jon pose la question :
I want to know how many bricks I can place around a 26-inch circle? There must be a formula other than trial and error. The length of the bricks is 6-inches. [How many 6-inch tangents can be in a 26-inch circle? Thank you very much. Jon

Tangents to a circle 2007-08-18
Laura pose la question :
I have tangents from point A and B that intersect at C. A third tangent XY lies in between the two lines that I have already drawn. I measured the perimeter and then I drew another line that was tangent to the circle and was inside the two lines again and measured the perimeter again. The perimeters were the same but I don't know how to prove why this happened and write a theorem for it.

Two tangents to a circle 2007-04-17
Doug pose la question :
Two distinct, nonparallel lines are tangen to a circle. The measurement of the angle between the two lines is 54 degrees (angle QVP). Suppose the diameter of the circle is 2 cm. What is the distance VP? Suppose the distance VP is 3.93 cm. What is the diameter of the circle? Find a formula for d, the diameter of the circle, in terms of VP. Find a formula for VP in terms of d, the diameter of the circle.

Tangent lines 2006-11-09
Melissa pose la question :
let f be a function with f(1)=4 such that for all points (x,y) on the graph of f the slope is given by (3x^(2)+1)/(2y)

a.)Find the slope of the graph of f at the point where x=1.
b.)Write an equation for the line tangent to the graph of f at x=1 and use it to approximate f(1.2)
c.) Find whether f is concave up or concave down when x=1. Is your answer in part b an overestimate or an underestimate?

A sequence of circles and tangents 2006-01-16
Paul pose la question :
Consider a circle whose center is (2,2) and whose radius is 1, and the straight line that goes through the origin and that is tangent to this circle so that the intersection between them is as shown in the attached picture. With this new point we make a new circle whose radius is half of the first one, and we calculate the corresponding intersection point with the same suppositions as in the first case. We repeat the process to the infinite. Find the distance between the center of the circle in the infinite and the origin (point (0,0)).

A parabola problem 2000-03-23
Morin pose la question :
I need to prove that if parabola x2=4py has a chord (not necessarily a focal chord) intersecting it at points A and B, with tangents to the parabola at points A and B that intersect at C, then a line drawn through C and the midpoint of the chord M is parallel to the y-axis. Further, prove that the point D where this line intersects the parabola is the midpoint of line CM.

The Length of a Chord. 1997-07-26
Nathan Arthur pose la question :
Picture a 9 inch diameter circle. Inside that circle is a 6 inch diameter circle tangent to it. Then, tangent to both circles is a 3 inch diameter circle. So there are three circles, two smaller ones inside a big one, all of them just touching but not overlapping.

Now picture a chord on the 9 inch circle that is created by making a line that is tangent to both the 6 and the 3 inch circles and extending it to the edge of the 9 inch circle.

I need the length of that cord.
Chris Fisher lui répond.
