#### Explanation:

I'm not to sure what is meant by 'graphing form' as you have the centre and radius required to draw the circle. The radius of 36 also seems large.

However , 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 centre and r , the radius.

here a = -2 , b = -7 and r = 36

substituting these values into the standard equation to obtain.

# (x + 2)^2 + (y + 7)^2 = 36^2 #
