    for that equation, \[x ^{2}+y ^{2^{}}+ax+by+c=0\]

    u also need to find the values of a, b, and c so that the equation describes the circle of the figure. complete both squares. u know the center and the radius of the circle (see the graph)

    ok know, the equation of a circle should be \[\large (x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2 \] we have to make the equation \[\large x^2+y^2ax+by+c=0 \] to resemble this. OK?

    have to find a now. so the center is (-1,3) and radius is 4 right?

    (x+1)+(y-3)=16?

    correction number one, the centre of circle is (1,-2) not (-2,1). so, h = 1 and k = -2 now remember the equation of circle is x^2 + y^2 +ax + by + c = 0 or (x - h)^2 + (y -k)^2 = 0 h,k is the centre of circle. the relation of b and k is b = -1/2(k) so, b = -1/2(-2) = 1

    dont learn formulas, learn concepts. do what i did before: expand \[\large (x-3)^2+(y+1)^2=4^2 \] it should take a minute

    so (x^2-6x+9)+(y^2+2x+1)=16?

    It should be (x^2-6x+9)+(y^2+2y+1)=16 (you had 2x, it should be 2y). In bx^2+y^2+ax+by+c=0, a is the coefficient of x. The coefficient of x in the equation you got is -6 So a = -6.
