${\left(x - 3\right)}^{2} + {\left(y - 5\right)}^{2} = 36$

Explanation:

The general equation for a circle is ${\left(x - h\right)}^{2} + {\left(y - k\right)}^{2} = {r}^{2}$, where $\left(h , k\right)$ is the center and $r$ is the radius. We simply plug the values into the general equation to find the answer.
