In the art class Pat used five circles for his new design, Snowman. One circle made the head and another touching circle (with radius three times as big) made the body. Two equal circles (of radius one centimetre less than that of the head) made the arms (one on each side) and they touched both the body and the head. The fifth circle enclosed the other four, touching each of them. The radius of the head’s circle was a whole number of centimetres.
How many centimetres?
