Can anyone help with this question?

Points C(-3,-3)and D (7,2)lie on the outside of the circle but the centre of the circle lies on CD. Find the education of the circle.

Have you sketched it?
You know the distance r^2 from the centre is the same for each point. This gives a linear equation.
You also know it lies on the line between C and D.
Can you form those two equations?
