Unformatted text preview: The radius of this sphere is ________. Solution: We see that the given equation can be written as x 2 + y 2 + 4 y + 4 + z 2 + 2 z + 1 = & 1 + 4 + 1 or as ( x & 0) 2 + ( y + 2) 2 + ( z + 1) 2 = 2 2 . Thus the center of the sphere is (0 ; & 2 ; & 1) and the radius is 2 . 1...
