Equation of circle from centre and radius
• Last Updated : 21 Apr, 2021

Given the centre of circle (x1, y1) and its radius r, find the equation of the circle having centre (x1, y1) and having radius r.
Examples:

Input : x1 = 2, y1 = -3, r = 8
Output : x^2 + y^2 – 4*x + 6*y = 51.
Input : x1 = 0, y1 = 0, r = 2
Output : x^2 + y^2 – 0*x + 0*y = 4. Approach:
Given the centre of circle (x1, y1) and its radius r, we have to find the equation of the circle having centre (x1, y1) and having radius r.
the equation of circle having centre (x1, y1) and having radius r is given by :-

on expanding above equation

` `

on arranging above we get
