I really don't get this lesson question: Which statement is true for the circle? http://learn.flvs.net/webdav/assessment_images/educator_geometry_v14/0800/0800_G8_Q29a.gif Its center is at the ordered pair of 1 over 2, minus 1, and the radius is minus five over two units. Its center is at the ordered pair of minus 1 over 2, 1, and the radius is five over two units. Its center is at the ordered pair of 1 over 2, minus 1, and the radius is five over two units. Its center is at the ordered pair of minus 1 over 2, 1, and the radius is minus five over two units.

    This link works for you because it is on a course website and you have to be logged in to view it, do you know how to take a screenshot?

    a radius is always positive

    that rules out 2 of your choices

    so it's either B or C, but I still don't know which

    the (x,y) pair at the center will make the (x-a)^2 and (y-b)^2 terms zero does that make sense?

    usually they say (x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2 and the center is at (h,k) with radius r

    how do we get h and k?

    so if you see (x- 1/2) that means the x value of the center is +1/2

    in this case you match your equation to the "generic" one match (x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2 (x-1/2)^2 + (y + 1)^2 = 25/4

    matching y-k to y+1 you have to rewrite y+1 as y - (-1) now you see y - k matches y - (-1) and k is -1

    or remember that you want the y value that makes (y+1)^2 zero. that would be y= -1

    so the Y is -1?
