Below is a question from a recent SAT exam. It is a non-calculator question that would typically take a student 1-2 minutes to complete.
A circle in the xy-plane has center (5, 7) and radius 2. Which of the following is an equation of the circle?
To begin, we will recall the formula for the equation of a circle
Where a is the x-coordinate for the centre of the circle, b is the y-coordinate of the centre of the circle, and r is the radius.
We are told in the question that the circle has a radius of 2. Therefore,
Our equation now looks like this.
Next, we substitute a and b for the values given as the circle's centre.
So, the answer is A.
