Sub-unit: Circles

The centre of two circles C1 and C2 each of unit radius are at a distance of 6 units from each other. Let P be the mid point of the line segment joining the centres of C1 and C2 and C be a circle touching circles C1 and C2 externally. If a common tangent to C1 and C passing through P is also a common tangent to C2 and C , then the radius of the circle C is :
