Center

#### Explanation:

The centre-radius form of a circle is

Given this, we would know that the center of the circle is

Luckily we are given the centre-radius form so we can easily get/compute for what was asked. However, if we are given the standard form of a circle, we should first do completing the square to transform it into its center-radius form.
