Both centres should lie on either side of the line as well as line can be tangent to circle.
(3 + 4 – α).(27 + 4 – α) < 0
(7 – α).(31 – α) < 0
⇒ α ∈ (7, 31) …(1)
d_{1} = distance of (1, 1) from line
d_{1} = distance of (9, 1) from line
d_{1} ≥ r_{1} ⇒ \(\frac{7  α}{5}\) ≥ 1 ⇒ α ∈ (∞, 2] ⋃ [12, ∞) ......(2)
d_{2} ≥ r_{2} ⇒ \(\frac{31  α}{5}\) ≥ 2 ⇒ α ∈ (∞, 21] ⋃ [41, ∞) ......(3)
(1) ⋂ (2) ⋂ (3) ⇒ α ∈ [12, 21]
Sum of integers = 165
