So this is my question, I'm asked to find the center and the radius of the circle with this equation below, Mr F says: I have looked below. There is no equation. Equations have an equals sign in them .... All you have posted are a series of expressions and nothing can be done with them.

I don't know how to git rid with 2s in 2x^2+2y^2 to become x^2+y^2, if only the given is x^2+y^2, without those 2s, maybe I can solve it by myself.

2x^2+2y^2-8x+5y-80=0

/OFFTOPIC

And oh, if possible can someone point me the direct equation in formulating the equation of a circle from 3 points which is, (1,-2)(5,4)(10,5). I already got the answer, I just want to make sure if it is right. Here's mine,

( 8.06 = sqrt(x-9)^2+(y+3)^2 )

Thank you so much!
