1. Identify the center and radius. From the equation, the graph is a circle centered at the origin with radius r= 36 = 6. EXAMPLE 1 Graph an equation of a circle Graphy2 = – x2 + 36. Identify the radius of the circle. SOLUTION STEP 1 Rewrite the equationy2 = – x2 + 36in standard form asx2 + y2 = 36. STEP 2

2. EXAMPLE 1 Graph an equation of a circle STEP 3 Draw the circle. First plot several convenient points that are 6 units from the origin, such as (0, 6), (6, 0), (0, –6), and (–6, 0). Then draw the circle that passes through the points.

3. The radius is = 29 r = (2 – 0)2 + (–5 – 0)2 = 4 + 25 29 EXAMPLE 2 Write an equation of a circle The point (2, –5) lies on a circle whose center is the origin. Write the standard form of the equation of the circle. SOLUTION Because the point (2, –5) lies on the circle, the circle’s radius rmust be the distance between the center (0, 0) and (2, –5). Use the distance formula.

4. Use the standard form withr to write an equation of the circle. =29 = (29 )2 Substitute for r 29 EXAMPLE 2 Write an equation of a circle x2 + y2 = r2 Standard form x2 + y2 x2 + y2 = 29 Simplify

5. A line tangent to a circle is perpendicular to the radius at the point of tangency. Because the radius to the point (1–3, 2)has slope = = – 2 – 0 2 – 3 – 0 3 EXAMPLE 3 Standardized Test Practice SOLUTION m
