point P . While P is shown outside C1 it need not always be outside the circle. There may be some limitations on the position of P which you may discover while doing this investigation.
Circle C2 is now drawn with center P and radius OP . Let A be one of the points
Your conjecture was based upon observed patterns. Write a conjecture on the relationship between OP ' . This task will investigate the length of [OP '] as the position of P and the radius of C1 vary. Mathematics not only observes patterns and describes the relationships seen. Note the effect on OP ' . and note the effect on OP ' . Vary the radius of C1 and note the effect on OP ' . and hence the value of OP . Write a conjecture on the relationship between OP ' and r . Let P ' be the point of intersection (other than O ) of circle C 3 and the line (OP ) . and the position of P . = 2 . Discuss the scope and/or limitations associated with this conjectured relationship.Circle C 3 is now drawn with center A and radius r . Vary the position of P . r . but also seeks to explain the underlying reason for the relationship. and r . OP . Give a justification of why your conjecture is true. Start by holding the radius constant at r = 1 . Continue by holding the position of P constant at OP Now vary both the radius. . Write a conjecture on the relationship between OP ' and OP . You may find it useful to add some line segments to the diagram.
