a) Find the equation of the circle for which the segment AB is a diameter.

Ans: (x - 7)^2 + (y - 11)^2 = 100

b) Accurate to the nearest tenth, the circumference of this circle is _______ ?

I was able to find a)the equation but I don't know how to find the circumference, PLEASE HELP!!

from your equation isn't the radius equal to 10

And isn't the perimeter of a circle 2pi(r) ?
