a) It wants the equation of SD, as it looks to me...
You see that it hits D right in the middle of AC, so find the midpoint of AC.
Then, you have the co-ordinate S(0,-2) and that midpoint, do y-y1 = m(x-x1)

b) ... Should be x - y = -2 according to the graph given.

c) ...the co-ordinates are already given?

d) Similar method to a)

e) Pretty much find the distance between each of these points and S and prove that to be the radius of the circle. (radius should be square root 40)
