(x-2)2+(y+2)2=36

This is the form of a circle. Use this form to determine the center and radius of the circle.

(x-h)2+(y-k)2=r2

Match the values in this circle to those of the standard form. The variable r represents the radius of the circle, h represents the x-offset from the origin, and k represents the y-offset from origin.

r=6

h=2

k=-2

The center of the circle is found at (h,k).

Center: (2,-2)

These values represent the important values for graphing and analyzing a circle.

Center: (2,-2)

Radius: 6

Graph (x-2)^2+(y+2)^2=36
