minimum or maximum??!
since the two points lie on the circle , the circle's centre must lie on the median ( hik, dunno correct name..i mean the line which is perpendicular to the line formed by the two points, so called line l, at the middle point of line l ) ...This centre can move infinitely along the the perpendicular line ....i doubt if the question asks for minimum radius.

diameter is the largest cord.

so maximum readious can be upto infinity. but minimum radious is 4.
