Outline Relations Graphing Relations Circles Circles Definition y The set of points (x , y ) that lie a fixed distance r > 0 from a fixed point C (h, k ) is called a circle. r is called the radius and C is called the center of the circle. Example Draw the circle with radius 5 and center C (1, −2). r C (x , y ) x Outline Relations Graphing Relations The Standard Form of the Equation of a Circle If the distance from C (h, k ) to (x , y ) is r , then r= (x − h)2 + (y −...
