(a) Consider the circle: (x+2)squared + (y-1)squared =9.
Find the center and radius of the circle.

(b) Consider the circles:
x squared + y squared + 4x-4y-1=0
x squared + y squared -2x+4y-4=0

(i) Find the center of each circle.
(ii) Find the distance between the centers if the circles are plotted on
the same rectangular coordinate axes.
