    Hello, samdmansam!

    Find the Cartesian inequality for the region represented by:
    |z+9-9i| \;\leq \; \frac{1}{7}|z-3-2i|

    Write your answer in a "natural" form.
    What is the centre of that circle?
    What is the radius of the circle?
    We have: . \bigg|z-(-9+9i)\bigg| \;\leq\; \frac{1}{7}\bigg|z - (3+2i)\bigg|

    We are given two points on the complex plane: . A(-9,9)\:\text{ and }\:B(3,2)

    We want all points P(x,y) such that: . d(PA)  \:\leq \:\frac{1}{7}\,d(PB)

    . . d(PA) \;=\;\sqrt{(x+9)^2 + (y-9)^2}\qquad d(PB) \;=\;\sqrt{(x-3)^2 + (y-2)^2}

    We have: . \sqrt{(x+9)^2 + (y-9)^2} \;\leq \;\frac{1}{7}\sqrt{(x-3)^2 + (y-2)^2}

    . . which simplifies to: . 48x^2 + 888x + 48y^2 - 878y + 7925 \;\leq \;0

    Now complete the square to find the center and radius of this circle.
    . .
    We want all points on and inside the circle.

    Good luck!
