Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[{({x7})^2}+{({y(11)}^2} = {6^2}\] Remember your order of operations: PEMDAS. 1) Simplify the {y(11)} first  remember two consecutive negatives is the same as a plus sign. 2) You can multiply out 6^2 on the right at the same time. 3) Lastly Use your rules to multiply a binomial by a binomial (itself). You'll have two of these to multiply out. 4) Finally, combine like terms. Post your progress.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oops, I was telling you how to expand this equation  not very useful. Remember the basic unit circle equation: \[x^2 + y^2 = (radius)^2 \]  radius equals 1 for the unit circle. I imagine that your assignment is to find the new center and radius of the circle in the given equation. Correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just responded, but my answer didnt stick for some reason. I agree with Moss' interpretation. http://www.regentsprep.org/Regents/math/algtrig/ATC1/circlelesson.htm the equation you have, to me, is in the centre radius form, whereas the multiplied out form is the "general form"
