Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can use the standard form a a circle with center (h,k) \[(xh)^2 + (yk)^2 = r^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We are given the center in form Center = (h,k) Center = (2,4) Radius (r)= 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(xh)^2 + (yk)^2 = r^2 \] < this is the equation of the circle (h,k) < center r< radius since we have (2,4) with a radius 6 that means that h = 2, k = 2, and r =6 . Just plug those values into the formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it would be (x2)^2 + (y+4)^2=6^2.... Right? @Usukidoll @Deeezzzz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's close. you just have to expand on the 6^2 part 6 x6 =? otherwise the equation is correct.
