# Find an equation for the circle that has center (−1, 4) and passes through the point (3, −2).

To determine

To find: The equation of the circle that has center at (1,4) and passes through the point (3,2).

Explanation

Formula used:

The equation of the circle is (xh)2+(yk)2=r2, where the center of the circle is at the point (h,k), r is the radius of the circle.

Calculation:

Suppose, the equation of the circle is (xh)2+(yk)2=r2.

It is given that, the center of the circle is at the point (1,4).

Thus, substitute h=1 and k=4 in (xh)2+(yk)2=r2 to obtain the equation of the straight line,

(x+1)2+(y4)2=r2

It is given that, the line passes through the point (2,5)
