#### Answer:

#### 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 radiusin this question a = 2 , b = 4 and r = 6

substitute these values into the standard equation

#rArr (x - 2)^2 + (y - 4)^2 = 36" is the equation " #
