Hello, Joe!

Welcome aboard!

We are given three infinite straight lines.

We need to construct a circle that is tangent to the first two lines

and has its center on the third line. Code:

Assuming that the lines intersect . . .

Construct the bisector of the angle formed by and

. . The center of our circle lies on this angle bisector.

Locate the intersection of the angle bisector and

. . is the center of the circle

Determine the perpendicular distance from to (or to ).

. . That is the radius of the circle.
