Given, In the diagram, CD is tangent to circles A nad B amd the circles are tangent to each other.
CD=15, AB=17 and CB=6
Now,

From the diagram, we can say that CB and BE is the radius of the circle B and AD and AE is the radius of the circle A.
So, AB=BE+AE[CB=BE]
17=CB+AE
17=6+AE
AE=176
AE=11
AD=AE=11
AD=11
