    Can someone make any sense out of this?

    You want to calculate the distance between Q and P using the pythagorean/distance formula and then half it, because the radius is half the diamater.

    This isn't the only way to do it I don't think, but can you find the midpoint of those two points?

     a^2 + b^2 = c^2 ?

    You need to go back and learn how to calculate the distance between two points.

    I just did  a^2 + b^2 = c^2 and got c = 10, radius is = 5, its the correct formula.

    Then find the distance from (1,1) to either one of the other 2 points - P would be easier.

    You want to find the difference in x values and square it, then the difference in y values and square that. Add these together. Take the square root, and you should get your answer
