# Equation of circle from center and radius

Given the center of circle (x1, y1) and its radius r, find the equation of the circle having center (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 center of circle (x1, y1) and its radius r, we have to find the equation of the circle having center (x1, y1) and having radius r.
the equation of circle having center (x1, y1) and having radius r is given by :-

on expanding above equation

` `

on arranging above we get

Below is the implementation of above approach:

Output:

`x^2 + (-4 x) + y^2 + (6 y) = 51.`

Time complexity: O(1), since there is no loop or recursion.
Auxiliary Space: O(1), since no extra space has been taken.
