IF endpoints A(-7-1) and B(5,5)
How do you determine the equation of the circle passing through AB.
Need help with this, I can fiqure this out. Which equation do I use and what would the answer be.
Thanks for your help in advance.
You can first use the mid-point formula to find the center of the circle:
midpoint formula says:
(x coordinate of center of circle)
and you do the same for your k (y coordinate) with the y coordinates of the given points.
So for your circle:
So the coordinate of the center of your circle are:
(h,k) or (-1,2)
Using that, see if you can figure out the standard form equation for the circle.
