# Check if a circle lies inside another circle or not

Given two circles with radii and centres given. The task is to check whether the smaller circle lies inside the bigger circle or not.

**Examples:**

Input:x1 = 10, y1 = 8, x2 = 1, y2 = 2, r1 = 30, r2 = 10Output:The smaller circle lies completely inside the bigger circle without touching each other at a point of circumference.Input :x1 = 7, y1 = 8;x2 = 3, y2 = 5;r1 = 30, r2 = 25Output :The smaller circle lies completely inside the bigger circle with touching each other at a point of circumference.

**Approach**:

Here three cases can come,

The smaller circle lies completely inside the bigger circle without touching each other at a point of circumference.

If this case happens, the sum of the distance between the centres and smaller radius is lesser than the bigger radius, then obviously the smaller circle lies completely inside the circle, without touching the circumference.

The smaller circle lies completely inside the bigger circle with touching each other at a point of the circumference. If this case happens, the sum of the distance between the centres and smaller radius is equal to the bigger radius, then obviously the smaller circle lies completely inside the circle, with touching the circumference.

The smaller does not lies inside the bigger circle completely.If this case happens, then sum of the distance between the centers and smaller radius is greater than the bigger radius, then obviously the smaller circle does not lies completely inside the circle.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## CPP

`// C++ program to check if one circle ` `// lies inside another circle or not. ` ` ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `void` `circle(` `int` `x1, ` `int` `y1, ` `int` `x2, ` ` ` `int` `y2, ` `int` `r1, ` `int` `r2) ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `distSq = ` `sqrt` `(((x1 - x2) ` ` ` `* (x1 - x2)) ` ` ` `+ ((y1 - y2) ` ` ` `* (y1 - y2))); ` ` ` ` ` `if` `(distSq + r2 == r1) ` ` ` `cout << ` `"The smaller circle lies completely"` ` ` `<< ` `" inside the bigger circle with "` ` ` `<< ` `"touching each other "` ` ` `<< ` `"at a point of circumference.
