This problem examines equations defining different circles in the xy plane.
a. Use the Pythagorean theorem to find an equation in x and y whose solutions are the points on the circle of radius 2 with center (1, 1) and explain why it works.
b. Suppose r is a positive number and (a, b) a point in the plane. Use the Pythagorean
theorem to find an equation in x and y whose solutions are the points on the circle of
radius r with center and explain why it work
