 T O P I C    R E V I E W T-Maree Posted - 08/30/2012 : 21:15:31 When projected onto a two-dimensional plane the surface of the Earth approximates a circle. If we position the city of Toowoomba at the origin (0, 0) then the equation of this circle is given by:x^2 + y^2 – 4x + 6y – 3468 = 0A telecommunication satellite is on orbit 0.6 units above the Earth’s surface. Find the equation of the circle described by the satellite. Hint: Rewrite the given equation to find the centre and the radius of the circle described by the Earth’s surface. 1   L A T E S T    R E P L I E S    (Newest First) royhaas Posted - 08/31/2012 : 08:09:41 Use the hint and complete the square on x and y to re-write the equation of the circle in its standard form.
