State the center and the radius of the circle represented by the equation
(x + 1)^2 + (y – 5)^2 = 64

in the general equation of a circle
(xh)^2 + (yk)^2 = r^2
the centre is (h,k) and the radius is r
can you match this with your given equation? 
ok based on that I would say the radius is 8 cause 8*8 = 64 and the center is (1,5)? Or do the signs change because of the equation
(xh)^2 + (yk)^2 = r^2 making the center (1,5)? 
radius is correct,
the centre is (1,5) 
That is what I thought, so the standard form would be
(x(1]^2 + (y5)^2 = 64 
yes,
I just mentally change the sign I see in the bracket 
Great! Thanks for the help! So R= 8 and the center is (1,5) got it! Thanks again!
