Find the coordinates of the centre radius of each of the following circle:x2 + y2 – ax – by = 0

Given:

equation of the circle is x2 + y2 - ax - by = 0 .... (1)

We know that for a circle

x2 + y2 + 2ax + 2by + c = 0 .... (2)

Centre = (- a, - b)

Comparing (1) with (2) we get,

Centre =

Centre =

The centre and radius of the circle is and .
