## On to the Challenge!

Can you create the following graph using desmos.com or some other graphing tool? If you’re victorious, leave us a note in the comments when you’re done. Start with this: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/carxvfz2mu

I feel like I’m missing something about the highlighting around the circles. It doesn’t seem to have any lines, such as are included with graphing inequalities. Is there another Desmos feature that you could hint at?

ah… the thing that I was missing was the instructions…

So this is what I thought you had to do..which means I just did twice as much work.. Now I’ll go redo it.

And here’s what you’re supposed to do..

Megan,

png’s aren’t graphs.

Here is my graph. Added a needed picture https://www.desmos.com/calculator/xxrmi4dchc

I tried to recreate this graph but struggled getting it to be the correct width. I liked the challenge overall and thought it was challenging. This is the graph I created: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/w9r2kxwpkm

It took me a while to figure out the equations for each but as soon as I got one it then allowed me to figure out the paralleled one since the circles had symmetry across the y axis. I don’t think my width is completely correct since it doesn’t get as close to 4 as the original one does and one of my rings is orange oops.

Tried our best! Good Challenge!
