Find the largest real number x for which there exists a real number y such that x^2+y^2 = 2x+2y .

I think it is a circle, but how am i supposed to figure this out??

  • Please help with graphing in geometry -

    The standard equation for a circle is ...


    (x-a)^2 + (y-b)^2=r^2

    Lets play with your equation.

    x^2+y^2-2x-2y=0

    x^2-2x + 1 + y^2-2y+1= 2 That wont work. We do have perfect squares on the left, but there is needed a zero on the right. Hmmm It is not a circle.

    Lets look at if y is y<=0
    if y is zero, then
    x^2=2x or x can be any real number up to infinity, and there can be no larger x. So the answer is x=inf is the largest real number. Yes, y=0 is a real number.
