F. (-4,0)
G. (0,1)
H. (1,-1)
J. (4,1)
K. (5,0)
ACT Practice Question: Circles in Coordinate Geometry
Example:
In the standard (x,y) plane, a circle has a center at (2,-3) and a circumference of 8π. Which of the following is an equation for this circle?
A. (x - 2)2 + (y - 3)2 = 16
B. (x + 2)2 + (y - 3)2 = 16
C. (x - 2)2 + (y + 3)2 = 16
D. (x + 2)2 + (y - 3)2 = 64
