The formula for a circle is (x – h)^2 + (y – k)^2 = r^2.

 

Now we just make the formula into our problem: (x-7)^2+(y-8)^2=10^2

 

Then we substitute (13,16) into the formula. If the solution is right, then (13,16) is on circle O. If not, then it's not.

 

(13-7)^2+(16-8)^2=100

6^2+8^2=100

36+64=100

100=100

 

This equation is true, so the answer is yes.
