When the equation of a circle is in this format:

(x - h)2 + (y - k)2 = r2     ,

The center of the circle is (h, k) and the radius is r.

 

 

So...if the equation of a circle is:

 

(x + 3)2 + (y - 6)2 = 81

 

h = -3

 

k = 6

 

r2 = 81

r   = \(\sqrt{81}\)

r   = 9

 

The center of the circle is (-3, 6) and the radius is 9.
