The orbit of Venus is nearly circular. An astronomer develops a model for the orbit in which the Sun has coordinates (5, 20). The circular orbit of Venus passes through (62, 20), and each unit of the coordinate plane represents 1 million miles. Which equation represents the orbit of Venus according to this astronomer?
a. (x + 62)2 + (y + 20)2 = 3844
b. (x  5)2 + (y + 20)2 = 3844
c. (x + 5)2 + (y  20)2 = 4489

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its C by distance between two points you can find the radius. that is 67 now equation of circle is (Xh)^2 + (Yk)^2= R^2 where (h,k) is the center of circle and R is the radius
