Circle Q is .........units to the .........of circle P and ..........units........it. Circle Q has ..........circle P. A) 2, 4, 6 or 10. B) Left or right. C) 2,4,6,or 10. D) above or below. E) A shorter radies than, The same radius as, A longer radius than?

Accepted Solution

Answer:Circle Q is   2   units to the   right  of circle P and   10   units    above   it. Circle Q has   a longer radius than  circle P.Explanation:1. Circle P:[tex](x+4)^2+(y+7)^2=16[/tex]2. Circle Q:[tex](x+2)^2 + (y-3)^2 =25[/tex]3. Using the general form of the canonic equations, you can tell inmediately the coordinates of the center and the radius of each circle:[tex](x-a)^2+(y-b)^2=r^2[/tex]Center: (a,b)Radius: rThen, for the circle P you have:Center: (-4,-7)Radius: 4And for the circle Q:Center: (-2, 3)Radius: 55. Then, to complete statements you have: Circle Q is: -2 - (-4) = - 2 + 4 = 2 units to the right of Circle P. Circle Q is: 3 - (-7) = 3 + 7 = 10 units above circle P Circle Q has longer radius (5) than circle P (4).
