Getting the center of a circle with only two points and the radius


I need the center of a circle and I only have two points on the circle and the radius.
I thought about the mathematical way and came up with a nonlinear equation systems to solve. Probably possible to do with python, but there are also some limitations.
So I was wondering if it is possible to solve this problem geometrical?

Hi @tilman
Draw a circle centered at each points with the given radius, the intersection of those 2 circles gives two points = two solutions for the center you are looking for.
