I'm pretty rusty, but I don't think so because you can't just go around messing with the basic orders of operations in arithmetic. Did you try working it out on paper or a small program using 1D and some simple test data (ie. A = 0, B = 10, S = abs(B - radius)... for various radii such as 1,2,3,4,5)? Did you see a full-blown pattern in how the squared distances [ie. pow(S, 2.0) and pow(abs(A - S), 2.0)] change with respect to pow(abs(B - A), 2.0) = 100? If you did, please let me know.
