Please don't change the subject to the weather or your journey home yesterday. I do not want you going off in tangents when we are discussing trigonometric ratios such as tangents.

It depends on what x is and how the tangents are related to it.

You do not solve the diameter. You can either measure it or you can CALCULATE it. Calculation depends on what information you do have. There are different formulae which depend on whether you know the radius, the circumference, the area, the volume (if a sphere), the angle between tangents from a point at a known distance from the centre etc.

Common Tangents Some common tangents of two circles can be drawn.You can find that the number of them varies by the condition of the distance and radii of two circles.Using the applet of Common Tangents, try to explore this relation to the common tangents. Using the applet of Common Tangents In this applet you can explore the number of common tangents, dragging to change the radii or to move the circles.The button of@"Init"@is for replacing the figure in the initial state.If you click the button of@"Auto",@the circles are moving automatically, and then you can enjoy their performance.

no; for example, a circle and a circle within that circle have no common tangents.

if you mean common tangents there can be only 2 tangents

That depends on what question you have been asked concerning the two tangents. All by itself, a circle with two tangents is quite content, and isn't looking for a solution.

If you draw tangents to a circle at opposite ends of a diameter, those two tangents are parallel. No matter how far you extend them, they'll never meet.
