## Problem

Point $P$ is outside circle $C$ on the plane. At most how many points on $C$ are $3 \, \text{cm}$ from $P$?

## Solution

The points $3 \, \text{cm}$ away from $P$ can be represented as a circle with radius $3\,\text{cm}$. The maximum number of intersections between two circles is $\boxed{(\text{B}) \; 2}$
