    Equation of circle centre (a,b): (x-a)^2 + (y-b)^2 = r^2

    You're given a and you have two points to form two simultaneous equation in y and r

    Plug in the points for x,y. So for example: (0,8) gets you: (0-4)^2 + (8-b)^2 = r^2.

    You may be new and may not know me.

    I go by the usernames
    ManLikeDuck
    ZackenLovesDuck
    DuckDucks
    StopBanningDuck
    Duckphysicsmaths

    All of which accounts are currently banned. So, if I were you I'd take my ugly face out the Maths forum before I make it uglier

    Alternatively, you could find an equation of the perpendicular bisector of the chord between the 2 points given and use the fact that the centre is at x=4 to find the equation of the circle.

    You are correct that I do not know you, it must be really hard for you to keep one stable account. So you'll probably being ducking (:teehee:) off soon anyway.
