Worksheet: Intersections of Circles and Lines

In this worksheet, we will practice finding points of intersection of circles and lines.

Q1:

Consider the circle (𝑥5)+(𝑦+2)=25. Is the line 𝑦3=0 tangent to, intersecting, or disjoint from the circle?

  • Adisjoint from the circle
  • Btangent to the circle
  • Cintersecting the circle

Q2:

Which of the following points lies on the circle 𝑦+(𝑥+6)=144?

  • A(6,0)
  • B(6,12)
  • C(6,0)
  • D(11,127)

Q3:

The line 4𝑦3𝑥2=0 meets the circle 𝑥+𝑦+6𝑥+4𝑦=0 in points 𝐴 and 𝐵. Determine the distance between the center of the circle and 𝐴𝐵.

Q4:

Which of the following is a point of intersection between Circles 𝐴 and 𝐵 where Circle 𝐴 has radius 10 and center (9,3) and Circle 𝐵 has radius 5 and center (0,7)?

  • A(0, 7)
  • B(3, 11)
  • C(2,1)
  • D(0, 2)
  • E(4, 12)

Q5:

Which of the following is a point of intersection between Circles A and B where Circle A has radius 13 and center (7,7) and Circle B has radius 5 and center (9,1)?

  • A(4,1)
  • B(6,7)
  • C(2,5)
  • D(5,2)

  • A(1,4)
  • B(1,4)
  • C(1,2)
  • D(12,7)
