A circle is the set of points that are a fixed distance r, called the radius, from a fixed point (x, y), called the center. It can be thought of as a special case of an ellipse when

Algebraic Expression

The equation for the circle of radius r centered at (0, 0) is

If you want a circle centered at (h, k) replace x with (x - h) and y with (y - k)
