Three non overlapping circles with a triangle
If you go to figure 3 on this webpage, it looks identical to my diagram, but the radii are different. In figure 3, swap 1 for 2, 2 for 4 and 3 for 6.
I have a diagram that shows three circles not overlapping, the radii are 2cm, 4cm and 6cm (XYZ). There is a triangle formed by joining the centres of the circles.
Prove that X = 90 degrees.
Calculate Y and Z.

Are then circles tangent to one another? Can you post the diagram?
