Centre of first Circle is A(0,0) and second centre is B(3,4). So distance between centres is 5. Radius of first circle=x=2 and radius of second y=7 So AB=|x-y|. So circles touch internally. Hence only one common tangent.

Let R and r be the radii of the two circles. Find out the distance d between the centres of the circles. Then, If d< abs(R-r), no common tangents If d = abs(R-r), one common tangent If abs(R-r) ≤ d ≤ max(R,r), two common tangents If d = max(R,r), three tangents If d > max(R,r), four...

If d< abs(R-r), no common tangents

If d = abs(R-r), one common tangent

If abs(R-r) ≤ d ≤ max(R,r), two common tangents

If d = max(R,r), three tangents

If d > max(R,r), four tangents.

First of all calculate the distance between centers of circle C (0,0) and C' (3,4) which is 5 units.By comparing general equation of circle, Radius of first circle is 2 unit and that of second is 7unit. As CC'=R-r, it means circles are touching internally. Hence, we can say that only one common tangent...
