## 'Tricircle' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/

The centre of the larger circle is at the midpoint of one side
of an equilateral triangle and the circle touches the other two
sides of the triangle. A smaller circle touches the larger circle
and two sides of the triangle. If the small circle has radius 1
unit find the radius of the larger circle.
