  1. 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

  6. P(-10, -2), C(x, y), Q(4, 6).
    a. x+10 = 1/2(4+10)
    X = -3.
    y+2 = 1/2(6+2)
    Y = 2.

    b. Radius = sqrt ((-3+10)^2+(2+2)^2) = sqrt 65.

    c. (x+10)^2+(y+2)^2 = 65.

  7. a. To find the center of the circle, we use the midpoint formula. ((-10+4)/2 , (-2+6)/2 )= C(-3,2). The center is at (-3,2).
    b. d = √((x_2 - x_1)^2 + (y_2-y_1)^2)
    d=√((-3 - 4)^2 + (2-6)^2)
    d=√((-7)^2 + (-4)^2)
    d=√(49 + 16)
    d=√(65)
    Radius=√(65)
    c. (x+3)^2+(y-2)^2 = 65.
