5-30.

Write the equation of a circle with a center at $(−3,5)$ that is tangent to the y-axis (in other words, it touches the y-axis at only one point). Sketching a picture will help.

Since the circle is tangent to the y-axis, the length of the radius will be equal to the distance from the center to the y-axis.

Use the eTool below to graph the equation.
