# Apollonius Problem: What is it?

A Mathematical Droodle

What if applet does not run? |

The applet demonstrates an ancient geometric problem of finding a circle tangent to the given three circles. The number of solutions may range from 0 to 8.

A particular case where the three given circles touch each other externally lends itself to only two solutions that are known as Soddy's circles.
