 # Circle Equation Calculator

 Radius and Center(h,k)=(,)and r = Diameter PointsA = (,)B = (,) Circle Equation

Find the equation of the circle with
center (h,k) = (2,-4) and radius r = 5

## Standard Circle Equation:

(x - h)2 + (y - k)2 = r2

## Plugging in our numbers, we get:

(x - 2)2 + (y - (-4))2 = 52
(x - 2)2 + (y + 4)2 = 25

## General form of circle equation

Center (h, k) = (2, -4) and r = r = 5:

## Expand the standard form

x2 + y2 - 2hx - 2ky + h2 + k2 - r2 = 0

## Plugg in our values for h,k, and r:

x2 + y2 - 2(2)x - 2(-4)y + 22 + -42 - 52 = 0
x2 + y2 - 4x + 8y + 4 + 16 - 25 = 0

## Combine our constants

x2 + y2 - 4x + 8y - 5 = 0

x2 + y2 - 4x + 8y - 5 = 0

x2 + y2 - 4x + 8y - 5 = 0

### How does the Circle Equation Calculator work?

This calculates the standard equation of a circle and general equation of a circle from the following given items:
* A center (h,k) and a radius r
* A diameter A(a1,a2) and B(b1,b2)
This also allows you to enter a standard or general form equation so that the center (h,k) and radius r can be determined.
This calculator has 8 inputs.

### What 1 formula is used for the Circle Equation Calculator?

1. (x - h)2 + (y - k)2 = r2 where (h,k) is the center of the circle and r = radius.
