    Intro to Circles Problem (Circles, Points, Substituion, Graph of the equation)

    Center of the circle is O=(2,4). Verify by substitution that point A=(5,8) is on the circle that is the graph of the equation (x-2)^2+(y-4)^2=25

    what do you need help with?

    let x=5, y=8, i.e. the point A=(5,8)

    plug those into your equation. Make sure the result makes sense.
