You say you have done part (a).
Then you should have an equation that looks like:
$(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2$ where $(h,k)$ is the center and $r$ is the radius.

That is also the way to do part (c), only 'unpack it'

As for part (b), you need to show that the point $(-3,k)$ is on the circle.

So here's my a, how do I unpack it?
