Circle

Definition: Let (h, k) be a given point in the xyplane and r > 0 a given positive real number. The circle of radius r centered at (h, k) is precisely all of the solutions (x,y) of the equation (x − h)^2 + (y − k)^2 = r^2; i.e., the circle is the graph of this equation, where h and k are the x and ycoordinates of the center of the circle.

Example: A circle centered at the origin with a radius of 4 would be notated as: (x0)^2 + (y0)^2 = 16 Another circle centered at the point (6,2) with a radius of 2 would be notated as: (x6)^2 + (y2)^2 = 4
