Question: 20
Page: 245
Difficulty: medium

KEY CONCEPTS: The equation $$(x−a)^2 +(y-b)^2 = r^2$$ represents a circle with:
Center (a, b)
Radius = r

GIVEN: $$(x−1)^2 +(y+1)^2=20$$
Rewrite as: $$(x−1)^2 +[y+(-1)]^2 =(\sqrt{20})^2$$

This means....
(a) Coordinates of the center
Answer: (1, -1)

(b) Radius
Answer: $$\sqrt{20}$$ (aka $$2\sqrt{5}$$)

(c) Area
Area of circle = $$\pi r^2 = \pi(\sqrt{20})^2 = 20\pi$$

Cheers,
Brent
