  1. The general equation of a circle is
    (x-x0)² + (y-y0)² = r²
    where (x0,y0) represent the centre of the circle, and r = radius.

    The given equation of the circle:
    (u-5)^2 + y^2 =9
    can be rewritten as:
    (u-5)² + (y-0)² = 3²
    which tells us that the circle has a centre at (5,0) with a radius of 3.

    The circumference is therefore 2π(3)=6π

    The new circle is to have twice the circumference, 12π so the radius must be 6.
    The centre is at the origin, i.e. (0,0).
    So the equation of the required circle is therefore:
    (u-0)²+(v-0)²=6²
    Simplifying,
    u²+v²=36
