1. ## Intersecting Circles

Hi there,

I'm doing this question:

A circle has the centre (-4,-2) and radius √58. A second circle has equation (x-4)² + (y-6)² = 26. Find the distance between the centres of these two circles and hence show that the circles intersect.

I know how to find the distance, however I don't know how to show that circles intersect.
