(x - h)^2 + (y - k)^2 = r^2
(x - 5)^2 + (y - 2)^2 = 4^2
If there's a 5 and a 2 to work with, how did 4 come up? I don't understand how to solve these radius distance equations. Can I please get some help on this?
A swimmer jumps 2 feet north and 5 feet east of the corner of the pool. The ripple effect traveled four feet from the center. Model an equation of a circle for the set of points that could be the center of the cannon ball. The corner is the origin at (0,0), and the center is at (5,2) with a radius of 4 feet. I need to find the standard equation using the distance formula.
