    \[(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2\] is the equation of a circle with radius \(r\) and center \((h,k)\)

    in your case \(r^2=64\) what is \(r\) ?

    And how do I translate that into the real equation?

    \[(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2\\(x-5)^2+(y+2)^2=64\] look almost identical

    okay, so it's 64. Right?

    \(r^2\) is 64 but you are asked for the radius, which is \(r\) what number would you square to get 64?

    \(64=8^2\) so \(r=8\) yw

    Wait guys, I have another question. segment PR has an endpoint at (25, -5) and a midpoint of (18, -1). What is the value of the x-coordinate of the other endpoint?
