if it is tangent to both axes as you said, that centre should be (3, -3) or (2, -2)....isn't it???
guys can you help me answer this question and explain how to solve it
Find the equation of a circle given the center is (3, -2) and it is tangent to the x-axis; what about if it is tangent to y-axis
Hello, FailCalculus!
Please check the wording of the problem.
As stated, there is no solution.
Find the equation of a circle given the center is (3, -2)
and is tangent to the x-axis and tangent to y-axis
The center is at (3, -2).Code:| | 3 ----+-----------+--- | : | : | : -2 + - - - - - * |
The center is 2 units from the x-axis
- - - - . . and 3 units from the y-axis.
Quite impossible!
