You're overdoing things!
You need to practice with factors,
then quadratics.
Be very accustomed to those.
Then you have Pythagoras' theorem to master.
Firstly, zero multiplied by anything is zero...
3(0)=0+0+0
5(0)=0+0+0+0+0
and so on...
means or
So, from that, what possible values can we have for the radius ?
If the 2 givens (3 and 6 in your case) are represented by u and v, and d = diameter of circle, then:
d = [-b + SQRT(b^2 - 4c)] / 2, where b = -4(u + v) and c = 4(u^2 + v^2)
Stick 3 and 6 in there and you'll get d = 30 (hence radius = 15).
Try u=88, v=99: d = 638
