# Find the eq

Answer :

Let the equation of the required circle be (x – h)2+ (y – k)2 =r2

Since, the circle passes through points (2,3) and (-1,1).

(2 – h)2+ (3 – k)2 =r2 .................(1)

(-1 – h)2+ (1– k)2 =r2 ..................(2)

Since, the centre (h,k) of the circle lies on line x - 3y - 11= 0,

h - 3k =11..................... (3)

From the equation (1) and (2), we obtain

(2 – h)2+ (3 – k)2 =(-1 – h)2 + (1 – k)2

⇒ 4 – 4h + h2 +9 -6k +k2 = 1 + 2h +h2+1 – 2k + k2

⇒ 4 – 4h +9 -6k = 1 + 2h + 1 -2k

⇒ 6h + 4k =11................ (4)

Now multiply (3) by 6 and subtract it from (4) to get,

6h+ 4k - 6(h-3k) = 11 – 66

⇒ 6h + 4k – 6h + 18k = 11 – 66

⇒ 22 k = - 55

⇒ K = -5/2

Put this value in (4) to get,

6h + 4(-5/2) = 11

⇒ 6h – 10 = 11

⇒ 6h = 21

⇒ h = 21/6

⇒ h = 7/2

Thus we obtain h= and k= .

On substituting the values of h and k in equation (1), we get + = r2 + = r2 + = r2 + = r2 Thus, the equation of the required circle is +   + = 4x2 -28x + 49 +4y2 + 20y + 25 =130

4x2 +4y2 -28x + 20y - 56 =0

4(x2 +y2 -7x + 5y – 14) = 0

x2+y2-7x + 5y– 14 =0
