Objectives

Write an equation for a circle.

Graph a circle, and identify its center and radius.

Vocabulary

tangent

A circle is the set of points in a plane that are a fixed distance, called the radius, from a fixed point, called the center. Because all of the points on a circle are the same distance from the center of the circle, you can use the Distance Formula to find the equation of a circle.

Example 1: Using the Distance Formula to Write the Equation of a Circle

Write the equation of a circle with center (–3, 4) and radius r = 6.

Use the Distance Formula with (x2, y2) = (x, y), (x1, y1) = (–3, 4), and distance equal to the radius, 6.

Use the Distance Formula.

Substitute.

Square both sides.

Check It Out! Example 1

Write the equation of a circle with center (4, 2) and radius r = 7.

Use the Distance Formula with (x2, y2) = (x, y), (x1, y1) = (4, 2), and distance equal to the radius, 7.

Use the Distance Formula.

Substitute.

Square both sides.

Notice that r2 and the center are visible in the equation of a circle. This leads to a general formula for a circle with center (h, k) and radius r.

Helpful Hint

If the center of the circle is at the origin, the equation simplifies to x2 + y2 = r2.

Example 2A: Writing the Equation of a Circle

Write the equation of the circle.

the circle with center (0, 6) and radius r = 1

(x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2

Equation of a circle

(x – 0)2 + (y – 6)2 = 12

Substitute.

x2 + (y – 6)2 = 1

Example 2B: Writing the Equation of a Circle

Write the equation of the circle.

the circle with center (–4, 11) and containing the point (5, –1)

Use the Distance Formula to find the radius.

(x + 4)2 + (y – 11)2 = 152

Substitute the values into the equation of a circle.

(x + 4)2 + (y – 11)2 = 225

Check It Out! Example 2

Find the equation of the circle with center (–3, 5) and containing the point (9, 10).

Use the Distance Formula to find the radius.

Substitute the values into the equation of a circle.

(x + 3)2 + (y – 5)2 = 132

(x + 3)2 + (y – 5)2 = 169

The location of points in relation to a circle can be described by inequalities. The points inside the circle satisfy the inequality (x – h)2 + (x – k)2 < r2. The points outside the circle satisfy the inequality (x – h)2 + (x – k)2 > r2.

Example 3: Consumer Application

Use the map and information given in Example 3 on page 730. Which homes are within 4 miles of a restaurant located at (–1, 1)?

The circle has a center (–1, 1) and radius 4. The points insides the circle will satisfy the inequality (x + 1)2 + (y – 1)2 < 42. Points B, C, D and E are within a 4-mile radius .

Check Point F(–2, –3) is near the boundary.

(–2 + 1)2 + (–3 – 1)2 < 42

(–1)2 + (–4)2 < 42

x

Point F (–2, –3) is not inside the circle.

1 + 16 < 16

Check It Out! Example 3

What if…? Which homes are within a 3-mile radius of a restaurant located at (2, –1)?

The circle has a center (2, –1) and radius 3. The points inside the circle will satisfy the inequality (x – 2)2 + (y + 1)2 < 32. Points C and E are within a 3-mile radius .

Check Point B (1, 2) is near the boundary.

(1 – 2)2 + (2 + 1)2 < 32

(–1)2 + (3)2 < 32

x

1 + 9 < 9

Point B (1, 2) is not inside the circle.

Remember!

To review linear functions, see Lesson 2-4.

A tangent is a line in the same plane as the circle that intersects the circle at exactly one point. Recall from geometry that a tangent to a circle is perpendicular to the radius at the point of tangency.

From the equation x2 + y2 = 29, the circle has center of (0, 0) and radius r = .

Example 4: Writing the Equation of a Tangent
