### Given two circles and a point on one of the circles. Construct a circle
tangent to the two circles with one point of tangency being the designated
point.

To create the desired circle we will follow these steps:

1) Given the two circles, draw a line though the center of the first circle
and a point on the cirlcle.

2) Make another small circle the same radius of the second circle with
the center at the designated point.

3) Draw a line segment from the center of the second circle to the point
which intersects the third circle and the line. The intersection of the
perpendicular bisector of this line segment and the first line is the center
of the desired circle.

Thus, the tangent circle is as follows:
