Which is the standard form of a circle with equation x^2 + 4x + y^2  6y = 3?
A. (x+2)^2+(y+9)^2=16
B. (x2)^2+(y9)^2=3
C. (x+2)^2+(y3)^=16
D. (x+2)^2+(y3)^2=3

Steve,
Nope. Forgot to add the constants to both sides of the equation.
x^2 + 4x + y^2  6y = 3
(x^2+4x+4) + (y^23y+9) = 3+4+9
(x+2)^2 + (y3)^2 = 16
(C)
