The centre of a circle which is orthogonal to the circles $C_{1}: x^{2}+y^{2}=25\( and \)C_{2}:(x-7)^{2}+(y-5)^{2}=4$ and which has the least radius is : (a) \(\left(5, \frac{25}{7}\right)\) (b) \((5,7)\) (c) \((7,12)\) (d) none of these

Chapter 1

A circle of radius 5 meters is having is centre at \(A\) at the origin. Two circles II and III with centres at \(B\) and \(C\) of radii 3 and 4 metres respectively touch the circle \(I\) and also touch the \(x\)-axis to the right of \(A\). Find the equations to any two common tangents to the circles \(\mathrm{Il}\) and III.
