I agree with your solution to the intercepts, but I disagree with your solution to the intercepts.
Make and solve for ...
.
This does not have a real solution, so it does not cross the axis.
I have the following problem:
(X+5)^2+(Y-2)^2=20
for x I got X=-1 or X=9
For Y I solved
Y= 2 square root -5 or Y= -2 square rt -5
then im supposed to see if the y- axis and x axis is symetrical or the origin? Then justify it I'm unsure how to procede.
Any help would be appreciated
