Circle equation question(s)

So in this question, it is asking to graph a venn diagram with three circles. The equations I used are the followingL

E1: (x-h^2)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2

E2: (x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2

E3: (x-h^1.5)^2+(y-k^2)^2=r^2.

The thing I am stuck on is when it asks me to choose two of the equations and solve as a system of equations, and how many solutions will be found when solved.

The second thing I cannot figure out is when it asks: how many solutions would you find if you were to solve all three equations as one system? How would you do this?

Thanks for any help!

Some clarification please: The first 2 equations are the same circle equation (?) The last equation is unusual in that you are putting an exponent on the h and k factors... Any reason to do that verses just adjusting the values of h, k and r?
