- Let be a point and be a circle whose center is not .For any point on the circle we construct another circle with center this point and passing through . The envelope of the circles with centers on and passing through is a Limaçon.
- cardioid’s cusp is smoothed out and becomes a “dimple.” When de creases from to , the limaçon is shaped like an oval. This oval becomes more circular as , and when the curve is just the circle . The remaining parts of Figure 19 show that as becomes negative, the shapes change in reverse order.

- See the graph of this dimpled limacon. 0 <= r = 3 - 2 cos theta in [ 1, 5 ] Period = period of cos theta = 2pi. Using r = sqrt ( x^2 +t^2 ) and cos theta = x/r, the Cartesian form is obtained as x^2 + y^2 - 3 sqrt ( x^2 + y^2 )= 2x = 0 The graph of this dimpled limacon is immediate. graph{ x^2 + y^2 -3sqrt ( x^2 + y^2 )+ 2x = 0[-20 20 -10 10]}
