## Homework Statement

Find the equation of the circle which intersects the x-axis at two points at 2 unit distance from the origin and the radius is 5

## Homework Equations

x^2 + y^2 + 2gx + 2fy + c=0

r=(g^2+f^2-c)^1/2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I first tried to solve it by assuming that the two points are (2,0) and (2+x,0). The main conundrum is solving for x and also finding out the center of the circle
