hi, this isn't really a physics problem, more of a math problem, however, i can't find a math forum.. so i thought i'd put it here :D(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

your given that a circle passes through y-axis adn x-axis, also the circle passes through the points (8, -1).. find the equation of the circle, reminded that the equation should be in the following form: (x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2

i have no idea how i should approach this problem, thanks alot for your help :P
