Austin wants to sketch the graph of a circle represented by the given equation.
(x - 4)2 + (y + 7)2 = 64
Using complete sentences, describe the steps used to sketch the circle on a coordinate grid
Plot the center at (4,-7)
Plot the horizontal and vertical diameter endpoints, 8 units from the center.
Sketch a circular curve using those points.
Much easier with a compass :-)
