Solve: The Equation of a Sphere

Please complete the following: Find an equation of the sphere that passes through the origin and whose center is (10, 0, -10) and equals 0. Note that you must put everything on the left hand side of the equation and that we desire the coefficients of the quadratic terms to be 1.

Findinf the Equation of a Sphere Given the Center

Find an equation of the largest sphere with center (10, 1 , 3) that is contained completely in the first octant. Note that you must move everything to the left hand side of the equation that we desire the coefficients of the quadratic terms to be 1.
