A. Standard form of an equation for a circle

1. The equation for a circle with center at O(0 , 0) and radius r

The equation for a circle with center at O(0 , 0) and radius r is x2 + y2 = r2

or in set notation l {(x , y) | x2 + y2 = r2 }

Y

Proof:

P(x , y) |OP| = r

r

O X

( x 0) 2 + ( y 0) 2 = r (Distance formula)

x2 + y2 = r

x2 + y2 = r 2 (Square both sides)

Proven.

Examples:

1. Find the equation for a circle with center at O(0 , 0) and radius 3.

Solution:

The equation for a circle with center at O(0 , 0) and radius r is

x2 + y2 = r2

r = 3 x2 + y2 = 9

So the equation for the circle with center at O(0 , 0) and radius r is

x2 + y2 = 9

In set notation l {(x , y) | x2 + y2 = 9}

2. Find the equation for a circle with center at O(0 , 0) and passing through

a point P(2 , 3).

Solution:

x2 + y2 = r2

through P(2 , 3) (2)2 + (3)2 = r2

4 + 9 = r2

r2 = 13

hence :

x2 + y2 = 13

So the equation for the circle with center at O(0 , 0) and passing through

a point P(2 , 3) is x2 + y2 = 13

In set notation l {(x , y) | x2 + y2 = 13}

3. Find the equation for a circle with center at O(0 , 0) and tangent to a

Module of Mathematics 4

Solution:

a. The equation for the circle that has center (1 , 3) and radius 4 is

(x 1)2 + (y 3)2 = 42

(x2 2x + 1) + (y2 6y + 9) = 16

x2 + y2 2x 6y + 10 16 = 0

x2 + y2 2x 6y + 4 = 0

So, the general form equation for the circle that has center (1 , 3) and

radius 4 is x2 + y2 2x 6y + 4 = 0

b. The equation for the circle that has center (3 , 4) and radius is

(x (3))2 + (y (4))2 = ( )2

x2 + y2 + 6x + 8y + 25 =

4

4x2 + 4y2 + 24x + 32y + 100 = 9 (both sides are multiplied by 4)

4x2 + 4y2 + 24x + 32y + 91 = 0

So, the general form equation for the circle that has center (3 , 4) and

3

radius is 4x2 + 4y2 + 24x + 32y + 91 = 0

2

2. Determining the center and radius for the circle

Example:

Find the center and radius for the following equations:

a. x2 + y2 + 4x 6y 12 = 0

b. 4x2 + 4y2 8x + 16y + 11 = 0

c. x2 + y2 + Ax + By + C = 0

Solution:

To find the center and the radius for the circle we use completing square

a. x2 + y2 + 4x 6y 12 = 0

x2 + 4x + y2 6y = 12

(x2 + 4x + 4) + (y2 6y + 9) = 12 + 4 + 9

(x + 2)2 + (y 3)2 = 25 (Completing the square)

(x + 2) + (y 3) = 5

2 2 2

b. 4x2 + 4y2 8x + 16y + 11 = 0

4x2 8x + 4y2 + 16y = 11

4(x2 2x) + 4(y2 + 4y) = 11

4(x2 2x + 1) + 4(y2 + 4y + 4) = 11 + 4 + 16

4(x 1)2 + 4(y + 2)2 = 9 (Completing the square)

9

(x 1)2 + (y + 2)2 = (Both sides are divided by 4)

(x 1)2 + (y + 2)2 = ( ) 2

So the center is (1 , 2) and the radius is

2

c. x2 + y2 + Ax + By + C = 0

x2 + Ax + y2 + By = C

A B A2 B 2

(x2 + Ax + ( ) 2 ) + (y2 + By + ( ) 2 ) = C + +

Example:

Find the center and radius from the following equation for the circles:

a. x2 + y2 4x 6y 3 = 0

b. 9x2 + 9y2 + 18x + 36y 19 = 0

Solution:

a. x2 + y2 4x 6y 3 = 0

A = 4 ; B = 6 ; and C = 3

The center of the circle is ( , ) (2 , 3)

( 4) 2 ( 6) 2

The radius of the circle is r = + (3)

4 4

r = 4+9+3

r = 16 = 4

2 2

So, the circle x + y 4x 6y 3 = 0 has a center (2 , 3) and radius 4.

19

x2 + y2 + 2x + 4y =0

The center of the circle is (1 , 2)

Module of Mathematics 6

So the circle 9x2 + 9y2 + 18x + 36y 19 = 0 has a center (1 , 2) and

3. The power of a point

The power of a point P(h , k) to a circle L x2 + y2 + Ax + By + C = 0 is

KP(h , k) = h2 + k2 + Ah + Bh + C = 0

Using the power of a point, we can determine the position of the point

to the circle.

If the point P(h , k) is inside the circle, then KP(h , k) < 0

If the point P(h , k) is on the circle, then KP(h , k) = 0

If the point P(h , k) is outside the circle, then KP(h , k) > 0

Example:

Given the circle L x2 + y2 4x + 6y 12 = 0.Determine the position

of the following points to the circle:

a. A(1 , 3)

b. B(1 , 2)

Solution:

a. KA(1 , 3) = (1)2 + (3)2 4(1) + 6(3) 12 = 30

Because KA(1 , 3) < 0, then the point A is inside the circle L.

b. KB(1 , 2) = (1)2 + (2)2 4(1) + 6(2) 12 = 9

Because KB(1 , 2) > 0, then the point B is outside the circle L

By + C = 0, then the distance of the line is tangent that made from the

point P to the circle L is determined by formula:

PS = K P

With S is the point of tangency and Kp is the power of point P to the

circle L.

Exercise 3:

1. From the following equations, which is a circle equation and which is

not a circle equation (give your reason when your answer is not a circle

equation).

a. x2 + y2 + 4x + 6y + 2 = 0

2 2

b. x + y 6x 18y +89 = 0 d. 9x2 + 9y2 + 6x 12y 13 = 0

the circle, determine the center and the radius from the equations in

problem 4.

a). In the figure ( i ), a line g intersects a circle L in the two distinct points, they

are points A(x1 , y1) and B(x2 , y2).

b). In the figure ( ii ), a line g intersects a circle L in the one point or it is called

the line g is tangent to the circle L at a point T(x1 , y1). The point T(x1 , y1) is

called a point of tangency.

c). In figure (iii), a line g doesnt intersect and also tangent to a circle L.

Let a line g ax + by + c = 0 and a circle L x2 + y2 + Ax + By + C = 0, there are

three steps to determine the position of the line g to the circle L.

Step 1:

At the line g, express x as y function or y as x function.

Step 2:

Substitute x or y from the step 1 to the equation for the circle L. This substitution

will produce a quadratic equation result in x variable or in y variable, then find

the discriminant D of the quadratic equation.

Step 3:

The position of the line g to the circle L is determined by the discriminant D:

1). D > 0 the line g intersects the circle L at the two distinct points.

2). D = 0 the line g is tangent to the circle L.

3). D < 0 the line g doesnt intersect and also tangent to the circle L.

Example:

Without graphing on a Cartesian plane, determine the position of a line

g x + y + 4 = 0 to a circle L x2 + y2 + 8x 6 = 0

Solution:

o The line g x + y + 4 = 0 can be expressed y = x 4

o Substitute y = x 4 to the circle L ( x2 + y2 + 8x 6 = 0, obtained:

x2 + (x 4)2 + 8x 6 = 0

( x2 + x2 + 8x + 16 + 8x 6 = 0

( 2x2 + 16x + 10 = 0

( x2 + 8x + 5 = 0

Module of Mathematics 8

The value of discriminant of the quadratic function x2 + 8x + 5 = 0 is

D = (8)2 4 (1)(5) = 64 20 = 44.

o Because D = 44 ( , then the line g intersects the circle L at two distinct points.

Exercise 4:

1. Sketch the graph of a line g and a circle L on the Cartesian plane, then

mention position of the line g to the circle L.

a. g ( x = 1 and L ( x2 + y2 2x + 4y 11 = 0

2. Without sketching the graph of a line g ( x 2y + 2 = 0 and a circle L (

x2 + y2 + 4x + 6y 3 = 0, determine the position of the line g to the

circle L.

3. Known a circle g ( x + y 8 = 0 and a circle L( x2 + y2 8x 2y + 12 =

L x2 + y2 = r2 at a point of tangency Y

T(x1 , y1).

o The equation of tangent line g is

y y1 = m g ( x x1 )

x1

y y1 = ( x x1 )

y1

y1 y y i = x1 y + x1

2 2

So, the equation of a tangent

x1 x + y1 y = x1 + y1

2 2 line of the circle L x2 + y2 = r2

is g x1x + y1y = r2

x1 x + y1 y = r 2

Example:

Module of Mathematics 9

Determine the equation of the tangent line to a circle L x2 + y2 = 25

passes through the point A(3 , 4).

Solution:

The point A(3 , 4) is on the circle L x2 + y2 = 25, x1 = 3 and y1 = 4

The equation of the tangent line is x1x + y1y = r2

3x + 4y = 25

So the equation of tangent line to the circle L x2 + y2 = 25 at the point

A(3 , 4) is 3x + 4y = 25.

at a point T(x1 , y1) is ( x1 a )( x a ) + ( y1 a )( y a ) = r 2

Example:

Determine the equation of tangent line to a circle L(x 2)2+(y 1)2=10,

passes through a point (3 , 4).

Solution:

Because the point (3 , 4) is on the circle L (x 2)2 + (y 1)2 = 10, then

the equation of tangent line is (x1 2)(x 2) + (y1 1)(y 1) = 10

(3 2)(x 2) + (4 1)(y 1) = 10

x 2 + 3y 3 = 10

x + 3y = 13.

So, the equation of tangent line to the circle L (x 2)2 + (y 1)2 = 10 at

a point (3 , 4) is x + 3y = 13

L x2 + y2 + Ax + By + C = 0 at a point T(x1 , y1) is

Solution:

The equation of tangent line to the circle L x2 + y2 2x 10y + 17 = 0

is: x1 x + y1 y ( x + x1 ) 5( y + y1 ) + 17 = 0

4x + 5y (x + 4) 5( y + 5) + 17 = 0

4x + 5y x 4 5y 25 + 17 = 0

3x 12 = 0

3x = 12

x = 4.

So, the equation of tangent line to the circle L x2 + y2 2x 10y+17 = 0

that passes through a point (4 , 5) is x = 4.

x2 + (mx + n)2 r2 = 0

x2 + m2x2 + 2mnx + n2 r2 = 0

(1 + m2)x2 + 2mnx + n2 r2 = 0

Because the line is tangent to the circle, then D = 0

(2mn)2 4 (1 + m2) (n2 r2) = 0

4m2n2 4n2 + 4r2 4m2n2+ 4m2r2 = 0

4n2 = 4r2 4m2r2

n2 = r2(m2 + 1) (both sides are divided by 4)

n = r m2 + 1

So the equation of tangent line to the circle L x2 + y2 = r2 is

y = mx r m 2 + 1

Conclusion:

The equation of tangent line to the circle L x2 + y2 = r2 with its slope

m is y = mx r m 2 + 1

Example:

Find the equation of tangent line to the circle L x2 + y2 = 16 with its

slope is 2 .

Solution:

The equation of tangent line to the circle L x2 + y2 = 16, with its

slope is 2

y = mx r (2) 2 + 1

y = mx

The equation of tangent line to the circle L x2 + y2 = 16, with its

slope 2 is y = mx n

y = mx + n

y = mx r m 2 + 1

y = 2x 4 (2) 2 + 1

So the equation of tangent line y = 2x 4 5

y b = m(x a) r m 2 + 1

Example :

Determine the equation of tangent line to a circle (x 4)2 + (y 2)2 = 1

which has a slope 1.

Solution:

m = 1 and r = 1

(y 2) = m(x 4) r m 2 + 1

(y 2) = 1(x 4) 1 1 + 1

y = x 2 2

So, the equations of tangent line to the circle (x 4)2 + (y 2)2 = 1 which

has slope 1 are y = x 2 + 2 or y = x 2 2

B. The equation of tangent line of a circle, passes through at a point (the

point is outside the circle

A point of tangency

P(x1 , y1)

The 2nd tangent line

A polar line

A point of tangency

A point P(x1 , y1) is outside the circle L. Through the point P can be

drawn tangent lines to the circle L. There are two tangent lines. There

some steps (algorithm) to determine the equation of tangent lines . The

steps are :

Step 1

Assumed the equation of tangent line is a line g. The line g is passes

through a point P(x1 , y1) and has a slope m. The equation of tangent line

g is:

y y1 = m(x x1)

y = mx mx1 + y1 equation 1.

Step 2

The line g is tangent to the circle L (x a)2 + (y b)2 = r2 if the line g has

a slope m then the equation of tangent line g is:

y b = m(x a) r m 2 + 1

y = mx ma + b r m 2 + 1 equation 2.

Step 3

From equations 1 and 2 we get:

mx mx1 + y1 = mx ma + b r m 2 + 1

ma mx1 + y1 b = r m 2 + 1

Square both sides to get the value of m.

Step 3

Substitute the value of m (from steps 2) to the equation 1, we will be able

to find the equation of tangent line.

A polar line of a point P(x1 , y1) is a line that intersects the circle at two

points of tangency

Example:

Known the circle L x2 + y2 = 25. A point P(1 , 7) that outside the

circle.

Determine:

a. the equation of a tangent line to the circle L which passes through

the point P.

b. the equation of a polar line of the point P.

c. The point of tangencies

Solution:

Module of Mathematics 12

a. Assumed a line g is the equation of tangent line that passes through

a point P(1 , 7).

The equation of line g is y 7 = m(x +1)

y = mx + m + 7 equation 1.

Assumed a line g is a tangent line to the circle that has a slope m.

y = mx r m 2 + 1

y = mx 5 m 2 + 1 equation 2.

mx + m + 7 = mx 5 m 2 + 1

m + 7 = 5 m2 + 1

(m + 7)2 = 25 (m2 + 1)

m2 + 14m + 49 = 25m2 + 25

24m2 14m2 24 = 0

12m2 7m2 12 = 0

(3m 4) ( 4m + 3) = 0

4 3

m = or m =

3 4

4 4 4 3 3 3

For m = y = x + + 7 For m = y = x+ + 7

3 3 3 4 4 4

3y = 4x + 25 4y = 3x + 25

4x 3y + 25 = 0 3x + 4y 25 = 0

So, the equation of a tangent line to the circle L x2 + y2 = 25 which

passes through a point P(1 , 7) are 4x 3y + 25 = 0 and 3x + 4y

25 = 0.

b. The equation of a polar line of the point P(1 , 7) is

x1x + y1y = r2

(1)x + 7y = 25

x + 7y = 25

So, the equation of a polar line of the point P( , 7) is x + 7y = 25.

c. The points of tangency

The points of tangency are the intersection points between the polar

line and the circle.

The polar line x + 7y =25 x = 7y 25

Substitute x = 7y 25 to the circle x2 + y2 = 25

(7y 25)2 + y2 = 25

49y2 350y + 625 + y2 25 = 0

50y2 350y + 600 = 0

y2 7y + 12 = 0

(y 3)(y 4) = 0

y = 3 or y = 4

For y = 3 x = 7(3) 25 = 4 (4 , 3)

For y = 4 x = 7(4) 25 = 3 (3 , 4)

So, the points of tangency are (4 , 3) and (3 , 4).

Exercise 5:

1. Determine the equation of a tangent line to a circle passes through a

a. L x2 + y2 = 12, passes through a point (3 , 3)

b. L x2 + y2 = 10, passes through a point (1 , 3)

b. L (x + 2)2 + (y 4)2 = 45, passes through (4 , 1)

3. Determine the equation of a tangent line to a circle passes through a

given points with the following conditions:

a. L x2 + y2 4x 2y 3 = 0, passes through point (4, 3)

b. L 4x2 + 4y2 8x 4y 27 = 0, passes through a point (3 , )

4. Determine the equation of a tangent line for the following circles
