Geogebra users: This is a quick figure that you can make in a few keystrokes.

1. Create three points: A, B, and C

2. Create a value n set to a positive integer (e.g. n = 8)

3. Type this command: list1 = Sequence[Circle[C + k / n Vector[C, A], Distance[A, B] k / n], k, 0, n]

The centers of the circles follow a path from C to A. The distance from A to B dictates the size of the largest circle. Lastly, n adjusts how many circles will be drawn.
