    Use completing the square to get them both in the form of :\[ (x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2 \]

    For example: \[ x^2-4x = (x-2)^2-4 \]

    x^2 + y^2 + 2gx + 2fy + c=0 C ( -g,-f) so Here x^2+y^2+20x-12y+72=0 2g = 20 g = 10 2f = -12 f = -6 Since the Centre is -g,-f C ( -10 , - (-6) ) C ( -10 , 6)

    Just ignore the \(y\) terms and try to complete the square for (x\), then ignore the \(x\) terms and complete the square for \(y\)

    \[ x^2+y^2-4x-2y-11=0 \]Okay so we just ignore the \(y\) terms... \[ x^2-4x-11=0 \]How do you complete the square here?

    x^2+y^2-4x-2y-11=0 x^2-4x + y^2 -2y = 11 x^2 - 4x + 4 + y^2 - 2y + 1 = 11 + 4 + 1 (x-2)^2 + (y-1)^2 = 16 (x-2)^2 + (y-1)^2 = 4^2 now it is a circle with centre (2,1) and radius 4

    in \[x^2+y^2+20x-12y+72=0\] what term must be added to \[x^2+20x\] to get a perfect square trinomial that can be written in the form \[(x+\_\_)^2\]
