Hello, Dragon!
The areas of these two adjacent squares are 4cm² and 196cm².
Find the length of the segment joining the centers of their inscribed circles.
The sides of the squares are 2 cm and 14 cm.
. . Then the radii of the circles are 1 cm and 7 cm.
The central figure looks like this:Code:A * | * | * 6| * | * | * E + - - - - - - - - * B 1| |1 * - - - - - - - - * D 8 C
We have right triangle $\displaystyle AEB$ with $\displaystyle AE = 6,\:EB = 8$
Using Pythagorus: .$\displaystyle AB = 10$
