1. the point A(1,3) , B(1,7), C(7,7) lie on the circle (x-4)^2 + (y-5)^2 = 13

by considering the gradients of AB and BC, show that AC is a diameter of the circle

how do I do this?

but how do we show it?

AB : A line segment that goes from (1,3) to (1,7) must be a segment of the line x=1.

BC : A line segment that goes from (1,7) to (7,7) ...

i.e. AB is vertical and...

Have you drawn a diagram? It should become clear that <ABC is a right-angle.
