Think the answers is A here.

Circle O ==> D=10 so R=5
Circle P ==> D=6 so R=3

O and P are tangent, so no distance between them. 5+3 = 8, hence A.

Two circles tangent to each other share a common tangent line at the point of tangency.

At that point, the common tangent line is perpendicular to the radius of each circle.

Therefore, the radii and the point of tangency lie on the same line, which is why we can add the lengths of the radii to get the length of OP.

2r = diameter
Circle O radius = 5
Circle P radius = 3
OP = (3+5) = 8

Answer A

We see that the radius of circle O is 5 and the radius of circle P is 3; thus, the length of segment OP is 8.

Answer: A
