Find the equation of the circle having (1, -2) as its centre and passing through 3x + y = 14, 2x + 5y = 18?

Hussam Uddin replied | 22/11/2016

Equation of circle is (x-1)2 + (y +2)2 = r2 , we need to find r , point of intersection of 2 lines is 13x = 52, x= 4 , y = 2, therefore r2 = 25.

Find the centre and the radius of the circle from the given equation: (square of x) + (square of y) = 16?

Tapas replied | 28/11/2016

Circle: x^2 + y^2 = 16 = 4^2.
Center of the circle: (0, 0). Radius = 4 units.

Sarvajeet replied | 03/12/2016

The center = (0, 0), Radius = 4.

Find the whether (1, 3) lies inside, or outside or on the circle (square of x) + (square of y) = 16?

Gunturi replied | 03/12/2016

Substitute those values in the L.H.S of the equation. if
LHS < RHS --- Lies Inside
LHS = RHS ---- Lies on the circle
LHS > RHS ---- Lies outside of the circle.

Sarvajeet replied | 03/12/2016

Inside.

Show that the point (5, 6) outside the circle: (square of x) + (square of y) = 4?

Sarvajeet replied | 03/12/2016

S'=(square of 5) + (square of 6) - 4 = -57.

Tapas replied | 04/12/2016

The equation of the circle is:
x^2 + y^2 = 4 = 2^2.
Therefore the radius of the circle is 2 units with its center at (0, 0). So, any point at a distance bigger than 2 units must be outside the circle.
Distance between the center (0, 0) and point (5, 6) is:
Sq. root of [(5-0)^2 + (6-0)^2] = sq root of (25 + 36) = sq root of 61 = 7.8. This is greater than the radius...  more»

Find the equation of the circle which passes through the points (1, 2), (2, 2) and (4, -1)?

Sarvajeet replied | 03/12/2016

square of (x-3/2) + square of (y-3/2) = 1/2.

Take the general equation for a circle:
x^2 + y^2 + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0, where the center is at (-g, -f) and the radius is sq root of (g^2 +f^2 -c).
Now use the given points to get three equations to solve for three unknowns, g, f, and c. The equations with point (1, 2) becomes:
1^2 + 2^2 + 2xgx1 + 2xfx2 + c = 0
=> 2g + 4f + c = - 5 .............. (1)
Similarly,...  more»

=> 4g + 4f + c = - 8 .............. (2)
And, the equation with the point (4, -1) is:
=> 8g - 2f + c = - 17 .............. (3)

From (1) - (2) we get: -2g = 3 --> g = -3/2.
Using this value of g in (1) we get:
4f + c = - 2 ............ (4)
Using this value of g in (3) we get:
-2f + c = - 5 ............ (5)
From (4) - (5) we can get:
6f = 3 --> f = 1/2.
Using this value of f in (5) we get: c = - 4.
So, the equation of the circle is:
x^2 + y^2 + 2(-3/2)x + 2(1/2)y + (- 4) = 0.
After simplification:
--> x^2 + y^2 -3x +y - 4 = 0 (Answer) «less

There are infinite number of lines at different slopes (including its axis) which pass through the focus (5,0) of the parabola, (square of y) = 20x. So, you tell me either one slope or one point.
