The equation of circle is image.


To change the expression into a perfect square trinomial add (half the image coefficient)² and add (half the image coefficient)² to each side of the expression.





The standard form of circle equation is image, where image is the center and image is the radius of circle.

Compare the image with standard form of circle equation.

Here image and image.

Therefore, the radius of the circle equation is image.
