# how to draw a circle using disks, the radii of the disks are 1, while the radius of the circle is $\sqrt 2 + \sqrt 6$

How to draw a picture like this?

Suppose the centers of the disks are located on a circle of radius $$\sqrt 2 + \sqrt 6$$.

Graphics[Thread[{Reverse[Hue /@ Subdivide[0, 1, 11]],

• More compact version: Graphics[MapIndexed[{Hue[1 - #2/12], Disk[#, 1]} &, CirclePoints[{Sqrt[2] + Sqrt[6], 5 π/6}, 12]]] – J. M.'s torpor Feb 27 at 6:18
