Two congruent circles in a rectangle 
20121020 

From Alexander: Have you ever solved a problem, in which you have a rectangle, from which you need to cut the largest two circles of equivalent diameter? I bisected a rectangle diagonally, but the circles, while tangent to two of the sides, are not tangent to eachother. Can you devise a method for two equivalent circles, that are tangent to two sides, are also to eachother?
Take for example a piece of paper, Each if the two largest circles has a diameter that is greater than the distance to the midpoint of the diagonal bisector of the rectangle. Answered by Chris Fisher.
