Would anyone happen to have some links which briefly explain some of the laws in geometry and/or discrete math? At the moment, i am looking for a summary of the Properties of Circles .

Thank you for being as helpful as you always are.

I found MathWorld, although i can not find properties of circles section. link

What are some general rules regarding a tangent which lies on two points; these two points are each on a different (sized circle), and the two circles are overlapping each other (intersecting at two points).

The only one I know of (though there may be more) is that the chord drawn from the two points of intersection of the circles bisects the common external tangent.

Hope that helps! :)

So if the two points of intersection are connected, and are extended to meet the common tangent, the tangent will be bisected?

Yes, that's correct.
