Circles Abound (2) (Posted on 2004-10-17) Difficulty: 4 of 5
I've a black circle of radius 5.

I wish to create 5 identical white circles of some lesser radius, which I will place on top of the black circle and completely obscure (cover) the black circle.

What is the smallest radius which I can make the smaller circles and still meet my requirement?
