Find the exact values of x co-ordinates of the points where the circle crosses x axis watch

    • Thread Starter

    The equation of the circle is (x-3)^2 + (y+2)^2 = 9

    Can someone please help me solve this question or give me clues on how to solve the question?

    The circle crosses the x axis where y = 0. Try setting y = 0 and see how the equation now looks.
