The equation of the given circle is (x + 5)2 + (y – 3)2 = 36.

(x + 5)2 + (y – 3)2 = 36

⇒ {x – (–5)}2 + (y – 3)2 = 62, which is of the form (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2, where h = –5, k = 3, and r = 6.

The equation of the given circle is x2 + y2 – 4x – 8y – 45 = 0.

x2 + y2 – 4x – 8y – 45 = 0

⇒ (x2 – 4x) + (y– 8y) = 45

⇒ {x2 – 2(x)(2) + 22} + {y2 – 2(y)(4)+ 42} – 4 –16 = 45

⇒ (x – 2)2 + (y –4)2 = 65

⇒ (x – 2)2 + (y –4)2 = , which is of the form (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2, where h = 2, k = 4, and .

⇒ {x2 – 2(x)(4) + 42} + {y+ 2(y)(5) + 52}– 16 – 25 = 12

⇒ (x – 4)2 + (y + 5)2 = 53 which is of the form (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2, where h = 4, k = –5, and .

#### Question 10:

Find the equation of the circle passing through the points (4, 1) and (6, 5) and whose centre is on the line 4x + y = 16.

Let the equation of the required circle be (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2.

Since the circle passes through points (4, 1) and (6, 5),

(4 – h)2 + (1 – k)2 = r2 … (1)

(6 – h)2 + (5 – k)2 = r2 … (2)

Since the centre (h, k) of the circle lies on line 4x + y = 16,

4h + k = 16 … (3)

From equations (1) and (2), we obtain

(4 – h)2 + (1 – k)= (6 – h)2 + (5 – k)2

⇒ 16 – 8h + h2 + 1 – 2k + k2 = 36 – 12h + h2 + 25 – 10k + k2

⇒ 16 – 8h + 1 – 2k = 36 – 12h + 25 – 10k

⇒ 4h + 8k = 44

⇒ h + 2k = 11 … (4)

On solving equations (3) and (4), we obtain h = 3 and k = 4.

On substituting the values of h and k in equation (1), we obtain

(4 – 3)2 + (1 – 4)2 = r2

⇒ (1)2 + (– 3)2 = r2

⇒ 1 + 9 = r2

⇒ r2 = 10

⇒ Thus, the equation of the required circle is

(x – 3)2 + (y – 4)2 = x2 – 6x + 9 + y2 ­– 8y + 16 = 10

x2 + y2 – 6x – 8y + 15 = 0

#### Question 11:

Find the equation of the circle passing through the points (2, 3) and (–1, 1) and whose centre is on the line – 3y – 11 = 0.

Let the equation of the required circle be (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2.

Since the circle passes through points (2, 3) and (–1, 1),

(2 – h)2 + (3 – k)2 = r2 … (1)

(–1 – h)2 + (1 – k)2 = r2 … (2)

Since the centre (h, k) of the circle lies on line – 3y – 11 = 0,

– 3k = 11 … (3)

From equations (1) and (2), we obtain

(2 – h)+ (3 – k)2 = (–1 – h)2 + (1 – k)2

⇒ 4 – 4h + h2 + 9 – 6k + k2 = 1 + 2h + h2 + 1 – 2k + k2

⇒ 4 – 4h + 9 – 6k = 1 + 2h + 1 – 2k

⇒ 6h + 4k = 11 … (4)

On solving equations (3) and (4), we obtain .

On substituting the values of h and k in equation (1), we obtain Thus, the equation of the required circle is #### Question 12:

Find the equation of the circle with radius 5 whose centre lies on x-axis and passes through the point (2, 3).

Let the equation of the required circle be (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2.

Since the radius of the circle is 5 and its centre lies on the x-axis, k = 0 and r = 5.

Now, the equation of the circle becomes (x – h)2 + y2 = 25.

It is given that the circle passes through point (2, 3). When h = –2, the equation of the circle becomes

(x + 2)2 + y2 = 25

x2 + 4+ 4 + y2 = 25

x2 + y2 + 4x – 21 = 0

When h = 6, the equation of the circle becomes

(x – 6)y2 = 25

x2 – 12x +36 + y2 = 25

x2 + y2 – 12x + 11 = 0

#### Question 13:

Find the equation of the circle passing through (0, 0) and making intercepts and b on the coordinate axes.

Let the equation of the required circle be (x â€“ h)2 + (y â€“ k)2 = r2.

Since the circle passes through (0, 0),

(0 â€“ h)2 + (0 â€“ k)2 = r2

â‡’ h2 + k2 = r2

The equation of the circle now becomes (x â€“ h)2 + (y â€“ k)2 = h2 + k2.

It is given that the circle makes intercepts and b on the coordinate axes. This means that the circle passes through points (a, 0) and (0, b). Therefore,

(a â€“ h)2 + (0 â€“ k)2 = h2 + k2 â€¦ (1)

(0 â€“ h)2 + (b â€“ k)2 = h2 + k2 â€¦ (2)

From equation (1), we obtain

a2 â€“ 2ah + h2 + k2 = h2 + k2

â‡’ a2 â€“ 2ah = 0

â‡’ a(a â€“ 2h) = 0

â‡’ a = 0 or (a â€“ 2h) = 0

However, a â‰  0; hence, (a â€“ 2h) = 0 â‡’ h = .

From equation (2), we obtain

h2 + b2 â€“ 2bk + k2 = h2 + k2

â‡’ b2 â€“ 2bk = 0

â‡’ b(b â€“ 2k) = 0

â‡’ b = 0 or(b â€“ 2k) = 0

However, b â‰  0; hence, (b â€“ 2k) = 0 â‡’ k = .

Thus, the equation of the required circle is #### Question 14:

Find the equation of a circle with centre (2, 2) and passes through the point (4, 5).

The centre of the circle is given as (hk) = (2, 2).

Since the circle passes through point (4, 5), the radius (r) of the circle is the distance between the points (2, 2) and (4, 5). Thus, the equation of the circle is #### Question 15:

Does the point (–2.5, 3.5) lie inside, outside or on the circle x2 + y2 = 25?

The equation of the given circle is x2 + y2 = 25.

x2 + y2 = 25

⇒ (– 0)2 + (y – 0)2 = 52, which is of the form (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2, where h = 0, k = 0, and r = 5.

∴Centre = (0, 0) and radius = 5

Distance between point (–2.5, 3.5) and centre (0, 0) Since the distance between point (–2.5, 3.5) and centre (0, 0) of the circle is less than the radius of the circle, point (–2.5, 3.5) lies inside the circle.
