    MarkFL replied to a thread Radius of Circle in Pre-Calculus
    Let's let $0<a$ be the number units the radius must be increased. And so the change in area we can write as: \Delta A=\pi(r+a)^2-\pi r^2=b Now...

    Hey Bacterius, really liked the number theory challenge of yours. I wonder if that's an Olympiad problem. (PS : I have produced somewhat of a solution, but I am not sure if it's correct)
