The equation of a circle is shown below.
(x + 5)2 + (y + 6)2 = 16
Martha uses the following steps to sketch a graph of the circle.
1. Draw a circle through the plot points (-1, -6), (-9, -6), (-5, -2), and (-5, -10).
2. Obtain the center (-5, -6) and radius 4.
3. Write the equation in the form (x - (-5))2 + (y – (-6)2) = 42.
4. Mark the point (-5, -6) on the coordinate axis.
5. Calculate and plot the points around the center using given radius 4.
What is the correct order of steps to sketch the circle?

The radius is 4, right?

- hba

I agree.

- anonymous

Okay, but I still don't know the steps.... :(

- hba

(x-a)*

- hba

@Sunshine447 Where do you think you should start ?

- anonymous

either 3 or 5....?

- anonymous

@hba is it 3 or 5?

- hba

@Sunshine447 3 or 5 ?

- anonymous

3 i think...

- anonymous

wait....it has to be 3 cause5 isnt one of the choices.....

- anonymous

so its 2? I don't understand...

- anonymous

i think you'd have to write the equation right before trying to solve it....

- anonymous

@hba i think its C but im positive...

- anonymous

*im NOT positive....

- anonymous

I think the steps in C work

- anonymous

what do you mean?

- anonymous

well, you cant draw a circle without something to base it on, so A is wrong

- anonymous

*B is wrong

- anonymous

A is wrong cause you write the equation before drawing the circle

- anonymous

D is wrong for the same reason A is

- anonymous

okay.....

- anonymous

how do you find the center?

- anonymous

yes, you can but 1 shouuld be last.. its connecting the dots

- anonymous

true, but the equation should be already written... shouldn't it...?

- anonymous

@nincompoop so is it a or c?

- anonymous

that doesn't answer my question...... Is the answer A or C? No, I don't... Or are you implying BOTH.....

- anonymous

not even close....... geometry........

- anonymous

high school

- anonymous

no, just geo

- anonymous

so A or C... I still don't get it........

- anonymous

okay thanks!

- anonymous

@nincompoop i got another problem if you're willing to help....
