448: Hexagon Puzzle

Why did the puzzle creator only ask for circles A and B?

In the diagram, the 19 circles are to contain the integers 1 to 19 once each.
The sum total along any of the lines is 38.
Determine the integers in circles A and B.

Can you find the rest of the circles, too?

Another puzzle from Five Triangles.

  1. Asking for only two
    ⒜ is sufficient to determine whether someone "figured it out".
    ⒝ makes for faster marking on an exam.

    There is no deeper rationale.
