Consider again the sphere of radius 5 centered at (2, 3,−6). Describe the intersection of the sphere with the xz-plane. Write an equation (or equations) for this curve.

    Isn't the equation
    (x-2)^2 + (y-3)^2 + (z+6)^2 = 25

    And on the x-z plane, isn't y = 0 ?
    so
    (x-2)^2 + (0-3)^2 + (z+6)^2 = 25
    (x-2)^2 + (z+6)^2 = 25 + 9
    (x-2)^2 + (z+6)^2 = 34

    take it from there.
