1. Find the equation of the circle with center at the intersection of 4x + y - 4 = 0

and x - y - 6 = 0 and passing through (-1, -3)

Center is given to lie on both the lines 4x + y - 4 = 0 and x - y - 6 = 0

Adding the equations, we get 5x-10=0. This gives x=2. Substituting in the second equation, we get 2-y-4=0 ie y=-2

Hence the center is (2, -2). It is given that the circle passes through (-1, -3). Hence the radius is given by . Hence the equation to the circle is given by . In the standard form, it is given as

2. What is the equation of the circle ...
