# circles - c1Watch

#1
Hi guys wondering if someone could help me with these?

1. the points p and q have coordinates (-2, 6) and (4, -1) respectively. given that PQ is a diameter of a circle C,

i) find the cooridnates of the circle
ii)show that C has the equation x^2+ y^2-2x-5y-14=0

the point R has coordinates (2, 7)

iii) show that R lies on C and hence state the size of angle PRQ in degrees

2. the circle C has the equation x^2+y^2 +10x -8y+k=0, where k is the constant, given that the point with coordinates (-6,5) lies on C

i) find the value of k
ii) find the coordinates of the centre and the radius of C

A straight line which passes through the point A (2,3) is a tangent to C at the point B
iii)find the length AB in the form k square root 3

For 1)i, if PQ is a diameter then its midpoint is the centre. Can you proceed from here?

Have you done any parts from these questions?

If that is the centre then work out the radius from one of the points you're given then plug everything into the standard equation for a circle and simplify.

Do what?

Can you work out the radius?

Do you know what the standard equation of a circle is?

Where are you getting stuck exactly?
