# Tough Geometry I !---Just for personal reference

Diagram shows a straight line $\text{IJK}$, a circle, $2$ congruent quadrants $\text{BEF}$ and $\text{CGH}$, and straight lines extended from the ends of each arc. The top centre circle is tangent to the upper line at $\text{J}$ and the two quadrants at the marked points.

$\text{AB}$ and $\text{CD}$ are collinear

Given:

$p = \text{Distance of FG}$

$q = \text{Distance of BC} = \text{Distance if EH}$

$r = \text{Radius of each quadrant}$

$s = \text{Perpendicular distance from IJK to AB or CD}$

$R = \text{ Radius of the circle}$

The relation between $p, q, r, s, \text{and} R$:

$(s + r - R)^2 + (\dfrac{p}{2} + r)^2 = (R + r)^2$

Using Pythagorean Theorem

Note :The figure is symmetrical about the vertical diameter line of the circle (ignoring extra lines and points)  Note by Lin Shun Hao

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
