    general form equation of circle is : x^2+y^2+Ax+By+c=0 with the center is C(a,b) : a=-1/2*A, b=-1/2*B

    ok, given equation of circle : x^2+y^2=5x+6y or x^2+y^2-5x-6y=0 so, A=-5 and B=-6 to get its center, use formula like i said before a = -1/2*A = -1/2 * (-5) = ....? b = -1/2*B = -1/2 * (-6) = ....?
