My Calculus math teacher often likes to give us math problems that we have never encountered , for home work , before he actually starts teaching it. According to him it gets us 'thinking' analyticaly . Anyways here's the problem that's gotten me stomped :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the equation of the circle passing through the points A (0,8) , B (0,6) , and C (0,0).

Here's what I've figured so far , points A and B forms a chord. I found the mid point of A and B which is (3,4). Then using the point of slop formula , I obtain a line for the diamater of the circle which is y= 3/4 X + 2.25 . At this point I can't figure out what to do next to obtain the radius or the center of the circle. :uhh:

Some help please?
