Shouldn't there be a + sign between the 2 and the 3? What you have written is not the equation of a circle.

divide everybody by 3

(x-5)^2 + y^2 = 4

centre : (5,0), radius 2

clearly the circle can't reach the y-axis,

(let x= 0, ---> 75 + 3y^2 = 12

3y^2 = - .... , not possible)

for the x-intercepts , let y = 0

3(x-5)^2 = 12

(x-5)^2 = 4

x-5 = ± 2

x = 7 or x = 3
