Thanks! hi you will need to find the centre of the circle which is (4,1) tangent at x=2 , move 2 units to the right tangent at y=-1 , move 2 units up so equation : (x-4)^2+(y-1)^2=2^2 expand it to get other forms .
posted by Lance, Hi Lance, Statement on line 2 beginning radius=2 is incomplete without additional info.Missing something like the equation of the tangent line? bjh
