# A circle is centered at the point (5, -4) and passes through the point (-3, 2). What is the equation of this circle?

A circle is centered at the point (5, -4) and passes through the point (-3, 2). What is the equation of this circle? In the form: (x+?)^2+(y+?)^2+?**hello :an equation of the circle Center at the A(a,b) and ridus : r is : (x-a)² +(y-b)² = r² in this exercice : a =5 and b = -4 (Center at theA(5 , -4)) r = AP........P(-3 , 2) r² = (AP)² r² = (5+3)² +(2+4)² = 64+36=100 an equation of the circle that satisfies the stated conditions. Center at the A, passing through P(-3, 2) is : (x-5)² +(y+4)² = 10²**...
