Asked by wiki @ in **Mathematics** viewed by 207 People

Determine the equation of a circle with a center at (–4, 0) that passes through the point (–2, 1) by following the steps below. Use the distance formula to determine the radius: Substitute the known values into the standard form: (x – h)² + (y – k)² = r². What is the equation of a circle with a center at (–4, 0) that passes through the point (–2, 1)?
