Answer:

centre = (1 ,-2) and radius = 5

Explanation:

The standard form of the equation of a circle is.

#color(red)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)((x-a)^2+(y-b)^2=r^2)color(white)(a/a)|)))#
where (a ,b) are the coordinates of the centre and r, the radius.

The equation #(x-1)^2+(y+2)^2=25" is in this form"#

and by comparison with the standard form we obtain.

a = 1 , b = -2 and r = 5

Hence centre = (a ,b) = (1 ,-2) and radius = 5
