For what relation will the circle touch each other $S_1=x^2+y^2+2gx+2fy=0$ and $S_2=x^2+y^2+2g'x+2f'y=0$?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;gf'=g'f\\(b)\;gf'=-g'f\\(c)\;g'f'=g'f\\(d)\;gf'=g'ff'\end{array}$

Can you answer this question?

If two circle touch each other then distance between their centres=Sum or difference of their radii
For $S_1$
For $S_2$
$\sqrt{(g-g')^2+(f-f')^2}=\sqrt{g^2+f^2}\pm \sqrt{g'^2+f'^2}$
$\sqrt{(g^2+f^2+g'^2+f'^2-2gg'-2ff')}=\sqrt{g^2+f^2}\pm \sqrt{g'^2+f'^2}$
Squaring $(gg'+ff')=\pm \sqrt{(g^2+f^2)(g'^2+f'^2)}$
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
