Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles Vocabulary circle tangent Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles A circle is the set of points in a plane that are a fixed distance, called the radius, from a fixed point, called the center. Because all of the points on a circle are the same distance from the center of the circle, you can use the Distance Formula to find the equation of a circle. Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles Example 1: Using the Distance Formula to Write the Equation of a Circle Write the equation of a circle with center (–3, 4) and radius r = 6. Use the Distance Formula with (x2, y2) = (x, y), (x1, y1) = (–3, 4), and distance equal to the radius, 6. Use the Distance Formula. Substitute. Square both sides. Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles Check It Out! Example 1 Write the equation of a circle with center (4, 2) and radius r = 7. Use the Distance Formula with (x2, y2) = (x, y), (x1, y1) = (4, 2), and distance equal to the radius, 7. Use the Distance Formula. Substitute. Square both sides. Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles Notice that r2 and the center are visible in the equation of a circle. This leads to a general formula for a circle with center (h, k) and radius r. Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles Helpful Hint If the center of the circle is at the origin, the equation simplifies to x2 + y2 = r2. Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles Example 2A: Writing the Equation of a Circle Write the equation of the circle. the circle with center (0, 6) and radius r = 1 (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2 Equation of a circle (x – 0)2 + (y – 6)2 = 12 Substitute. x2 + (y – 6)2 = 1 Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles Example 2B: Writing the Equation of a Circle Write the equation of the circle. the circle with center (–4, 11) and containing the point (5, –1) Use the Distance Formula to find the radius. (x + 4)2 + (y – 11)2 = 152 Substitute the values into the equation of a circle. (x + 4)2 + (y – 11)2 = 225 Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles Check It Out! Example 2 Find the equation of the circle with center (–3, 5) and containing the point (9, 10). Use the Distance Formula to find the radius.

The points inside the circle satisfy the inequality (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 < r2. The points outside the circle satisfy the inequality (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 > r2.

Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles A tangent is a line in the same plane as the circle that intersects the circle at exactly one point. Recall from geometry that a tangent to a circle is perpendicular to the radius at the point of tangency. Remember! To review linear functions, see Lesson 2-4. Holt Algebra 2 10-2 Circles Example 4: Writing the Equation of a Tangent Write the equation of the line tangent to the circle x2 + y2 = 29 at the point (2, 5).
