The diameter of a circle has endpoints P(–10, –2) and Q(4, 6).
a.Find the center of the circle.
b.Find the radius. If your answer is not an integer, express it in radical form.
c.Write an equation for the circle.

  1. Reiny

    The centre must be the midpoint of PQ
    which would be C( (-10+4)/2 , (-2+6)/2 )
    = C(-3,2)

    radius is √( (4+3)^2 + (2-6)^2) = √65

    equation:
    (x+3)^2 + (y-2)^2 = 65
