In the rectangular coordinate system, (x,y) is a point on a circle that has center (3,2) and is tangent to the x-axis at (3,0).
Quantity A |
Quantity B |
The least possible value of x |
zero |
A. Quantity A is greater.
B. Quantity B is greater.
C. The two quantities are equal
D. The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
kudo for the right
solution and
explanationHere the distance between the centre of the circle (3,2) to the point (3,0),tangent to x asis is = \(\sqrt{(3-3)^2 + (0-2)^2}\) = 2, which is the radius of the circle.
Now (x,y) is any point in this circle with radius 2, so the minimum value of x > 0
Hence option A
