Question

Solution

Correct option is

Equation of given circles are x2 + y2 = 6x and x2 + y2 + 2x = 0. The given equations of circles can be re-written as

(x – 3)2 + y2 = 9 and (x + 1)2 + y2 = 1

Centres and radii of the given circles are C1(3, 0), r1 = 3 and

C2(–1, 0), r2 = 1 respectively.

Circles touch to each other

Here internal tangent is impossible, only external tangent is possible.
