Points A and B lie on a circle with centre P. The point AQ has coordinates (1, -2) and M is the midpoint of AB with coordinates (3, 1).

a)Find an equation for the line 𝑙 through M and P

Given that the 𝑥 coordinate of P is 6,
b)Find the equation of the circle

I've answered part a but I don't know how to start part b. Please help! )

You are told the x coord of P so you can use part (a) to get the y coord - then find the radius.

Use the eqn of a straight line u got for a to find the y value
