Circles & Parellel lines

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm having difficulty on this problem:

    "Two circles A, B ad a vector k are given. Determine points P on A and Q on B so that PQ is equal and parallel to k.
    ii) describe the situation where this is impossible"

    any body out there a master on circles, greatly appreciated!

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Well it seems a lot of information such as the radii of the circles, relative position of the centre of the circles, as well as the vector k are not given.
