    How to prove a point is the origin?ii
    I'm assuming it's part A??

    Just get it in the form (x-a)^2+(y-b)^2=c^2 and show that a=4 and b=2

    It's part 2; I've already worked out the radius=square root 29 but it says show that (4,2) is the origin inside the circle

    If any point is inside a circle then the distance between that point and the origin of the circle must be less than the radius.

    Make one zero to remove a term (à or b) then do the other one. By substituting in values of a or b that cancel out in the circle.

    How would you show that though?

    I just told you. Show that the distance between the origin and the centre of the circle is less than the radius by doing some Pythagoras - though you can skip the set up if you can notice that the form (x-4)^2+(y-2)^2 is essentially Pythagoras's for distance between a point (x,y) and (4,2), so just plug (0,0) into that and square root it. It should less than the radius.
