Give Radius Point:

Click on the XY input mode button X, Y button  so that we can position the radius point a fixed distance away from the centre. Now as you move the cursor you will see dynamic linear dimensions in the X & Y axis. Place the cursor so that the X dimension reads 55.00 and Y is zero. (The Y dimension will disappear when the value is zero). Click to accept and the first circle is drawn.
