Converting a equation of a circle in standard form to find center points and radius: Okay so the equation is x^27x+y^2+10y+16=0. I already solved the left side of the equation (x7/2)^2+(y+5)^2 so my center is (7/2, 5) but once I moved the 16 to the right so that it's =16 am not quite sure what to do now .... ? Help am so close.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes but that is the radius squared if you want the radius itself take the sq root for 85/4
