Alice from the Perse Senior School for Girls said:

I've done 4 combinations with red and blue separate, red touching the blue, red overlapping the blue and red inside the blue.

Here are the images which Alice sent:

Alyssa from Mason Middle School suggested:

You could make them overlapping by making them the same size

You're right, Alyssa, you could. This would be quite difficult to draw, though, which is probably why you didn't send us an image!

We would like to receive more ideas about how you could arrange two circles if you come up with some. Let us know! Please don't worry that your solution is not "complete" - we'd like to hear about anything you have tried. Teachers - you might like to send a summary of your children's work.
