(3,0) (7,6)
(x-7)2 + (y-6)2 = 7(2)
(x-7)2 + (y-6)2 = 49

Having difficulty with this problem.Can someone help?

You don't say what the actual problem is.

I see the resemblance to finding the equation of a circle??

What are you trying to find?

It says to write an equation of a circle with diameter

AB

• Geometry -

Is A at (3,0) and B at (7,6) ?
if so then the center is halfway between.
Xc = (3+7)/2 = 5
Yc = (0+6)/3 = 3
so of form
(x - 5)^2 + (y - 3)^2 = r^2
but r is half the length of AB
AB^2 = 4^2 + 6^2 = 16+36 = 52
AB = 7.21
(1/2) AB = r = 3.61
r^2 = 13
so in the end
(x - 5)^2 + (y - 3)^2 = 13
