Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Decide whether or not the equation has a circle as its graph. If it does, give the center a\[x^2+y^26x+2y=9\]nd the radius. If it does not, describe the graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know I need to rewrite into center radius form but i only get this far: \[(x^26x)+(y^2+2y)=9\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x^2+y^26x+2y=9 > (x^26x+9)+(y^2+2y+1)=9+9+1\] \[(x3)^2+(y+1)^2=1\] (3,1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0...I think I got the answer but I'm unsure. Sorry I've been meaning to reply for awhile but uh.. I probably got it wrong but this is what I got from it: Center of the circle is: C = (6, 2) Radius of the circle is 9.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes your work is correct remember to complete the square we should we should divide b by 2 and then add (b/2)^2 to the opposite side that's how u got +9 and 1 at right side 9+9+1= 1 so yes your work is correct good job!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok but @peridot got a different answer :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[x^2+y^26x+2y=9 > (x^26x+\color{Red}{9})+(y^2+2y+1)=9+9+1\] how did you get 9 ? explain

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought you had to take half of the middle number, and then square it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh yes so 6/2 = 3 6 isn't equal to 3 alright and yes (3)^2 =9 and like i said you should (b/2)^2 to the right side \[x^2+y^26x+2y=9 > (x^26x+\color{Red}{9})+(y^2+2y+1)=9+\color{ReD}{9}+1\]

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and same thing with one you take half of the middle term 2/2 =1 and then take square add to the right side \[x^2+y^26x+2y=9 > (x^26x+\color{Red}{9})+(y^2+2y+1)=9+\color{ReD}{9}+\color{blue}{1}\] 9+9 +1 = 1 so if your work is correct then obviously your answer is correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @rawrolivia \[(xh)^2+(yk)^2=r^2\] ? \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) general form of the circle write where r is the radius

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now compare your equation with that general form what is the radius in that equation ?
