Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0equation of a circle (xh)^2 + (yk)^2 = r^2 center (h,k) and radius r

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Center = (3,4) This is because, as triciaal said, in the equation (x+3)2+(y−4)2=36, 3=h and 4=k (H,K) are the coordinates of the center.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The definition of the circle is: the loci of a point which is moving at constant distance from a fixed point. So if the point is (h, k) and the constant distance is r, by the distance formula: \[\sqrt{(xh)^2+(yk)^2}=r\] After squaring, equation of the circle: \[(xh)^2+(yk)^2=r^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When multiplied out, we obtain the "general form" of the equation of a circle. Notice that in this form we can clearly see that the equation of a circle has both x2 and y2 terms and these terms have the same coefficient (usually 1).
