## Circumscribe three tangent circles in C#

The first step in the example Draw an Apollonian gasket in C# is to circumscribe three circles that all meet tangentially with a larger circle as shown in this example. In the previous example I glossed over how the program … Continue reading

## Draw three circles and find their tangent circles in C#

This example is similar to previous one Find circles that are tangent to three given circles (Apollonius’ Problem) in C# except it lets you click and drag to draw the three given circles. It then finds the (up to) 8 … Continue reading

## Find circles that are tangent to three given circles (Apollonius’ Problem) in C#

Given three objects that can be a point, line, or circle, you can try to draw circles that are tangent to each. The case using three circles is called Apollonius’ Problem. Originally these problems were studied by Euclid (ca. 300 … Continue reading
