# How do you write an equation in standard form of the circle with the given properties: Center at (−15, 0); r = sqrt14?

Dec 12, 2015

General equation of a circle:
${\left(x - h\right)}^{2} + {\left(y - k\right)}^{2} = {r}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

Center $= \left(h , k\right)$

Inserting the values from the problem ...

${\left(x + 15\right)}^{2} + {\left(y\right)}^{2} = 14$

hope that helped
