Find the equation of a circle that passes through the points A(2,2) and B(5,3) and has its centre on the line y = x +1

2. Relevant equations

(x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

can get 2 equations knowing the 2 points the circle passes through but still have 3 variables and am not sure how to use the equation for the centre

(2-h)^2 + (2-k)^2 = r^2

(5-h)^2 + (3-k)^2 = r^2

How do I solve from here?
