 Question 376780: I am in intermediate algebra, my tutor is gone for the weekend and I need some assistance. Problem: Find the center, radius, x-intercepts and y-intercepts of the circle X^2 + y^2 - 6x + 4y - 12 = 0 I am confused on the x-intercepts of my circle This is what I have done so far: X^2 - 6X + y^2 +4y = 12 x^2 - 6x + 9 + y^2 + 4y + 4 = 12 + 9 + 4 (x-3)^2 + (y + 2)^2 = 25 Y -intercepts: (x-3)^2 + (y+2)^2 = 25 (0-3)^2 + (y+2)^2 = 25 9 + (y+2)^2 = 5^2 -9 + 9 + (y+2)^2 = 5^2 - 9 (y+2)^2 = 4 square it y+2 = + or - 4 y = -6 y = 2 x intercepts x^2 - 6x - 12 = 0 Now I am stuck - I can't figure out how to figure out the x intercept I believe that vertex is : (3, -2) radius is: (5) y intercepts (0.-6) (0,2) x intercepts (-2,0) except that my circle is not exactly on -2 Thank you for your assistance Carol Click here to see answer by solver91311(16868)
