# Find the equation of the circle concentric with the circle x2 + y2 – 4x – 6y – 3 = 0 and which touches the y-axis.

The given image of the circle is: We know that the general equation of the circle is given by:

x2 + y2 + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0

Also,

Radius r = Now,  r = 4 units.

We need to the find the equation of the circle which is concentric to the given circle and touches y-axis.

The centre of the circle remains the same.

Now, y-axis will be tangent to the circle.

Point of contact will be (0, 3)

Now,

Equation of the circle:

(x – 2)2 + (y – 3)2 = (2)2

x2 + 4 – 4x + y2 + 9 – 6y = 4

x2 + y2 – 4x – 6y + 9 = 0
