Assignment 7: Tangent Circles in Java Sketchpad

by R. Adam Molnar

Once the applet loads, click and drag the points to watch changes in the tangent circles. Points A and B form one circle; points C and D form the other circle. Point P is the desired tangent point. Point X is the center of the light blue tangent circle, while point Y is the center of the crimson red one.

Please install Java (version 1.4 or later) to use JavaSketchpad applets.
