11-34.

Consider the circle that is centered at the origin and contains the point $\left(0, 3\right)$.

1. Use geometry and the definition of a circle to prove or disprove that the point $(1, \sqrt { 5 })$ lies on this circle.

Any line from the origin to the edge of the circle will be $3$ units long.

Find the distance from the origin to $(1,\sqrt{5})$.

2. Calculate at least one value of $x$ such that the point $(x, \sqrt { 5 })$ lies on the circle.

$x = −2$ or $2$

3. Name three other points on the same circle.

Write the equation for this circle and find values of $x$ and $y$ that satisfy the equation.
