Given A = (-1,0) and B = (11,4), how do you show that the equation of the circle with AB as diameter may be written as #(x-5)^2 + (y-2)^2 = 40#?
Recall that the center-radius form of the circle equation is in the format:
with the center being at the point
Let distance between
The circle is centered at midpoint of AB :
So the equation of the circle can be written as :
