#### 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.here a = 10 , b =-1 and r = 10

Substitute these values into the standard equation.

#rArr(x-10)^2+(y+1)^2=100" is the equation"#
