Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh we were taught to use a diff formula but i suppose it still the same u get your first point and label it x and y then u sub the point into the equation so your first one would look like this (1)^2 + (1)^2 + d(1) + e(1) + f = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i understand that much but I don't understand when it gets to the point of putting the answers of e and d and f back into the problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so after you have done that with each point u get three equations...then its basically just like three simultaneous equations and you get the answer by process of elimination

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then once you have e, d ans f u just sub it in to your original equation of x^2 + y^2 + dx + ey + f = 0
