I'm not really sure how to word this question so feel free to edit it to make more sense:
I have a big circle of radius 32, and I want to divide it into smaller segments by both drawing smaller circle(s) with the same midpoint and drawing sectors (?) in such a way that each segment will fit into a circle of radius 9.5
I brought pictures!:
Imagine that if I were to divide the big circle into 8 slices and make 2 sub-circles of 20 and 10 radii, then you can see that it wont fit (the biege circle is the 9.5 radius one):
But if I make 16 slices, it will fit and I'll only need one smaller circle with a raidus of 18:
So my question is: is there any optimal way to figure out the least amount of cuts and sub-circles that are needed to make this work?
The cuts don't need to go all the way through the from the edge of the big circle to the center, it can start or stop at any smaller circle.
By the way, I used Blender to draw the pictures so it may not be exact.
