Math Check

Hi! Can someone check my answer for this question? Thanks!



Question: List the following circles in order based of their radius. List them from smallest to largest.
A.) x^2+y^2-6x+8y-9=0
B.) (x-3)^2=9-(y+4)^2
C.) (y+4)^2=3-(x-3)^2
D.) (x-3)^2+(y+4)^2=1


My answers:
d,b,c,a

  1. The only one we actually have to work with is A
    let's complete the square:
    x^2+y^2-6x+8y-9=0
    x^2 - 6x + ... + y^2 + 8y + ... = 9
    x^2 - 6x + 9 + y^2 + 8y + 16 = 9+9+16
    (x-3)^2 + (y+4)^2 = 34, so its radius is √34

    my order from smallest to largest is
    D, C, B, A

    The radius of B is √9 = 3
    the radius of C = √3 which is < 3
