    agreed. as for #4, find the midpoint between where the circle crosses the y-axis. and you can see if that's -2 or not.

    true, #4 is probably at 5,-2, but i think it is too big.

    (9.5+5.5 )/2

    add the two values and have it -9.5 + 5.5 = -4 half of -4 = -2

    sorry! well, good to understand how to find the center anyway.

    that's why the teacher puts multiples that might be right, but there is only one that fits all details :) true. finding center is useful
