Circle A has a center at #(-8 ,8 )# and a radius of #8 #. Circle B has a center at #(-3 ,3 )# and a radius of #4 #. Do the circles overlap? If not, what is the smallest distance between them?
the circles will overlap
The radius of circle A is
The radius of circle B is
The distance between their centers
It is obvious that
Hence the circles will overlap
In that case the would have minimum distance
Is it OK?
