The question asks to find each sphere that passes through the point (5,1,4) and are tangent to all three coordinate planes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How would I set that up?

I have no problem finding the equation of a sphere when they give the center point and the radius, of course, but what do I need to know to find these equations?
