Answer:

Circle radius 10 centered on the origin.

Explanation:

The formula for the graph of a circle centered on #(h,k)# is:

#(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2#

you have:

#(x-0)^2+(y-0)^2=10^2#

so it is a circle of radius 10 centered at #(0,0)#

graph{x^2 + y^2 = 100 [-39.42, 40.58, -19.84, 20.16]}

Answer:

See below:

Explanation:

The equation of a circle is given by

#(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2#

with center #(h,k)# and radius #r#.

We have the equation

#x^2+y^2=100#, where the origin is our center since we have no #h# or #k# value. We also know from #sqrt100# that we have radius #10#.

We can now graph this circle knowing we are centered at the origin, and we have a radius of #10#.

graph{x^2+y^2=100 [-40, 40, -20, 20]}

Hope this helps!
