please help me?

**Jai**, Sunday, April 24, 2011 at 10:24amrecall that the equation of a circle is given by

(x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2

where

h = x-coordinate of center of circle

k = y-coordinate of center of circle

r = radius

thus from the given equation,

(x-2)^2 + (y+4)^2 = 9

the radius is sqrt(9) = 3

also, recall that area of circle is given by

A = pi*r^2

substituting,

A = pi*(3)^2

A = 3.14*9

A = 28.26 square units

hope this helps~ :)
