    The circular region of a circle is the whole circle itself?

    Are you trying the plot this relation?

    the given equation would graph as a circle of radius 6 centered at the origin.

    sorry, but I don't understand what you mean by "What is the circular region of a circle?" ... ???

    Re: What is the circular region of a circle?

    After Eagle Drive, your aunt turns on Main Street. Main Street is a straight
    road that cuts through the center of the circular region past the post offi ce.
    Find the equation that represents Main Street. Then graph the portion of Main
    Street that is on your auntís route in the same coordinate plane as part (a).
    So the post office is x^2+y^2=36.

    Thanks all for your help but I have already figured the problem out. The problem is right there. If you want to do more exploration on it be my guest. Once again thanks for your help and fast replies.

    No, your answer is incorrect. That equation does not describe the post office, it describes, perhaps, the "circular region" that contains the post office. There must be more to the problem that you have not told us. Perhaps, it would have helped if you had told us what "part a" is!
