Let be a point on the graph of equation, (x-94)^2 + (y-9)^2 = 8^2. What is the shortest possible distance between P and the x-axis?

This is the equation of a circle  with center  94 ,    and radius   = 8

   the shortest distance to the x - axis will be at the bottom of the circle .....distance will be    9 - 8 = 1 unit

      this will be at point    94,1
