Please I really need help with this one.Find an equation of the circle passing through (6, 7) and tangent to the line y = 2x + 1 at (5, 11). Write your answer in standard form.

    So to find the tangent line, you have to derive. You understand this part right?

    And then to derive...y'=2

    When you derive, you get the slope...So the slope of your tangent line is 2.

    So now you put this into point slope form y-7=2(x-6)

    And then to put it into standard form you just do some algebra: y=2x-12+7-->2x-5

    x^2+y^2=r^2 sub. x=6 y=7 find r=sqrt85

    you can use point-line distance formula to find coordinate of center..

    So I just plug Xand Y into the equation ax+by+c=0 but how would I find a,b,c

    y = 2x + 1 => 2x-y+1=0 a=2, b=-1, c=1

    Right, and what would I do after that how, do I convert it in standard from for a circle

    (x-x1)^2+(y-y1)^2=r^2 where x1 and x2 coordinate of center..

    and x1 and y1 would be 6, and 7
