I was solving an equation and got to a point where I have no clue what to do next! (Headbang) As you can see I have to find x and y, looks simple, but damn I forgot how to solve it! (Angry) If anyone could help I would appreciate it a lot!

Hi crapmathematician,

The locus of points (X, Y) which are at a given distance from a fixed point (10, 11) is a circle with center at (10, 11) and radius

The equation is . There is an infinite number of values for (x, y) that will satisfy this equation.

Never mind! Earboth, you da man!
