(A) 4 (B) 5 (C) 6 (D) 7 (E) 8 distance between the center of the circle (5,2) and (1,2) = \(\sqrt{(51)^2 + (2+2)^2}\) \(= 4\) distance between the center of the circle (5,2) and (5,7) = \(\sqrt{(55)^2 + (7+2)^2}\) \(= 9\) now, since point (1,2) lies inside the circle, therefore radius of the circle will be greater than 4. and also since point (5,7) lies outside the circle, therefore radius of the circle will be less than 9 i.e. 4<r<9 now since r is an integer, therefore possible values of r are 5,6,7 and 8. hence answer should be A.

Idea is that possible radius is between two points: (1,2) and (5,7)
51=4, meaning that point inside the circle is 4 numbers out of center (5,2), we should count it in Y axe in (5,7) direction, so 2+4=2 and radius is between 2 and 7.
72 =5 values of R, but 7 is out and maximal possible is 4
A

The center of a circle is (5, 2). (5, 7) is outside the circle, and (1, 2) is inside the circle. If the radius, r, is an integer, how many possible values are there for r?
does inside the circle means not on the circle ?
if no then (5,7) if lies on the circle then we should consider that point also.
than also total is 5
Please clarify and correct where m i wrong ?
Regards SG

r must be greater than 4 and smaller than 9, hence r=5,6,7 or 8. Answer A

The radius can be 5,6,7 or 8. All these cases satisfy the two given conditions.

Given data : R, the radius of the circle has to be an integer Center of the circle (5,2) Point inside the circle (1,2) Point outside the circle (5,7) Formula used : Distance between 2 points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is \(\sqrt{(x1x2)^2 + (y1y2)^2}\)
Since a point inside the circle is (1,2). The distance from the center of the circle is \(\sqrt{(51)^2 + (2+2)^2}\)(which is equal to 4) The point outside the circle is (5,7) The distance from the center of the circle is \(\sqrt{(55)^2 + (7+2)^2}\)(which is equal to 9) Since we have found out the range of the radius which is 4 < R < 9 We have four values for R (5,6,7,8) (Option A)

(A) 4 (B) 5 (C) 6 (D) 7 (E) 8 The center of a circle is (5, 2)As we can see from the image below, there are infinitely many circles that have their center at (5, 2) (1, 2) is INSIDE the circleWe can quickly determine that the distance from (1, 2) to the circle's center (5, 2) is 4 units... So a circle with a radius of 4 would PASS THROUGH the point (1, 2). Since (1, 2) is INSIDE the circle, we know that the radius of the circle must be GREATER THAN 4(5, 7) is OUTSIDE the circleThe distance from (5, 7) to the circle's center (5, 2) is 9 units... So a circle with a radius of 9 would PASS THROUGH the point (5, 7). Since (5, 7) is OUTSIDE the circle, we know that the radius of the circle must be LESS THAN 9So, we now have lower and upper limits of the radius. The radius of the circle is GREATER THAN 4 and LESS THAN 9In other words, 4 < r < 9Since the radius, r, is an INTEGER, there are only four possible values of r. r can equal 5, 6, 7, or 8 Answer: Cheers, Brent

Does that make sense?
