Hi.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If the radius of a circle is known and it's also known that its center is at X:0, Y:0, how can the points that form the circle be calculated? What would be the coordinates of a random point of the circle?

I made a simple illustration hoping that it would make the question a little clearer.

Any help would be fantastic.

Thank you!
