    A circle with center ( a, b ) and radius r has equation given as \[(x-a)^2+(y-b)^2=r^2\] We are given equation of circle as \[(x – 16)^2 + (y + 9)^2 = 4\] @julie001 Can you compare the two equations to find the center and radius?

    Work step by step \[(x-a)^2=(x-16)^2\] so a=16 Now you could find b and r, using the same procedure

    Yeah, standard equation of a circle is \[(x-a)^2+(y-b)^2=r^2\] and the equation given in the question is \[(x-16)^2+(y+9)^2=4\] We need to find the center (a, b) and radius r. So we compare the two equations \[(x-a)^2=(x-16)^2\] To make both sides equal a should be 16, so a=16 Now can you find b, by comparing \[(y-b)^2=(y+9)^2\]

    so its Center: (16, -9); Radius: 2

    There is no work to show. We know that if the equation is written in the form: \[(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2\] then the center is (h,k) and the radius is r

    i just plugged in the numbers with the equation

    So write the given equation: \[(x-16)^2+(y-(-9))^2=2^2\] and it is immediately obvious that the center is (16,-9) and the radius is 2
