Circle 1 has equation x^2+10x+y^2-12y=3
And circle 2 has equation x^2-6x+y^2-2qy=9

A) find C center and radius in terms of q for the second equation .
I’ve done that .

B) the distance between centres of the circles is sqroot 80 find the possible values of q?

I got 10 and 12 as q which I have no idea if they are right , if it’s wrong could you hint me the steps to get to the answer.


Thanks

Rearrange both equations into the form:
(x - a)^2 + (y - b)^2 = r^2

where (a,b) is the centre and the radius is r.

Doing this gives the first centre at (-5,6) and the second (3,q)

just finding the distance between these two points:

distance^2 = (3+5)^2 + (q-6)^2 = 64 + q^2 - 12 q + 36 = 80, gives the quadratic q^2 -12q +20 = 0, the solutions of which is q = 2 and q = 10

That’s what I’ve done I have written 12 instead of 2 lol

Why did you do (q-6)^2 ??? 6 is positive from centre (-5,6)
Also how come you made 5 from (-5,6) positive too????

For distance, you need the difference.

about the second equation, how did you complete the square on it?

You want to rearrange the equation so it's in the form of (x-a)^2 + (y-b)^2 = c^2. Where a,b,c are constants. To do this you complete the square. Once you have an equation of this form, then the centre is (a,b) and the radius is c.
