first we can find the eq of circle passing through three points, then can check the centre
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do I do that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
general eq of the circle is \[x^2+y^2+2gx+2fy+c=0\]

substitute the three points in this eq we get three eqs in three unknows find the unknows g,f and c

adding the resultant eqs -2f=2 f=-1 which gives g=-2 n c=-3

m sorry the formula i wrote earlier is to find the radius
anonymous

u got all the lenghy computations?
anonymous
  • anonymous
lengthy*
anonymous
  • anonymous
for the most part
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do g and f represent though?
anonymous
  • anonymous
if there is some confusion, u can ask:)
anonymous
  • anonymous
these r constants
anonymous
  • anonymous
the eq i wrote is the general eq of the circle
anonymous
  • anonymous
finding out g,f and c, we can find the eq of the circle
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay thank you
anonymous
  • anonymous
welcome:)
