# Circle containing points

Find all such positive integers $n\geq2$ that there exists a set of n points on a plane, every one of which lies outside of some circle containing all the other points and having the center in one of these points.

Could you please help me? I don't even understand how am I supposed to create such a circle... As "every one of which lies outside of some circle", how, at the same time, the circle can contain "all the other points"?

"and having the middle in one of them" dangles in your sentence. There's something in one of the points? – Dimitrije Kostic Nov 28 '11 at 15:06
What does "having the middle in one of them" mean? Does middle mean centre? To what kind of object does "them" refer? – André Nicolas Nov 28 '11 at 15:12
Sorry for the confusion, changed. – Tom Reilly Nov 28 '11 at 17:25
Could you respond on whether I decrypted the task correctly – user1708 Nov 29 '11 at 15:34
Oh, sorry, forgot about it... Yes, I believe you understood it correctly. Thank you. – Tom Reilly Nov 29 '11 at 16:29

If you intepret it such: Find all n such that we can have n points $p_i$, and n circles $C_t$, such that if $j\neq k$, then $p_j$ is contained in $C_k$, and each $C_q$ has a point $p_q$ at its center.
Then for every even $2\leq n$, we can place the points at the corners of a regular n-gon.
