(i) show that if the circle x^2 + y^2 + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0 touches the y- axis, then f^2 = c (ii) using the result from part (i) find the equation of the circle which contains the points (2, 3) and (2, -5) and which touches the y axis. i have done part (i) and gotten some of part (ii) but i need help finishing it please

    if you have part I done, the for the second part you have \[x^2+y^2+2gx+2fy+f^2=0\]

    replace \(x\) by 3, \(y\) by 3 and get an equation in \(f\) and \(g\) repeat with \(x=2\) and \(y=-5\)

    let me see if i get it \[4+9+4g+6f+f^2=0\] or \[13+4g+6f+f^2=0\]of \[4g+6f+f^2=-13\] for the first one

    \[4+25+4g-10f+f^2=0\] \[4g-10f+f^2=-29\]

    subtract the second equation from the first i get \[16f=16\] and so \(f=1\)
