5-72.

Remember the general equation for a circle is (*x* − *h*)^{2} + (*y* − *k*)^{2} = *r*^{2} where (*h*, *k*) is the center.

See part (a).

Complete the squares for *x* and *y*.

Rearrange the equation:*x*^{2} − 8*x* + _______ + *y*^{2} + 10*y* + _______ = −5 + _______ + _______

(*x* − 4)^{2} + (*y* + 5)^{2} = 36
