I'm trying to find the standard equation of a circle given the circles center and a point that it passes through. I can't find which formula is actually the "standard." Would it be the Center-Radius form (x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2 or the General form
x^2 + y^2 + cx + dy + e = 0. I see the Center-Radius form more commonly used but the general form just yells out standard.
Yes I understand this but the instructions to one of my problems says "Find the standard equation of a circle with the center at (-8,4) and passing through (3,-2)." But in my book they don't mention anything about a "standard form" only the center-radius form and general form. I know how to work them both I just don't want to put it in the wrong form
