A circle is the set of points in the plane equidistant from a given point, called the center. A radius is a segment with endpoints at the center and a point on the circle.The circle is defined by its radius and center, so if you know these values, you can write the equation of a circle, and you can also graph it. In this lesson you'll learn about the standard form of the equation of a circle, and how to graph it. Note to use symmetry to help you graph a circle. Review completing the square and do so to put the equation of a circle in standard form.
