Find the equation of the circle with radius 5 whose centre lies on x-axis and passes through the point (2, 3).
Let the equation of the required circle be (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2.
Since the radius of the circle is 5 and its centre lies on the x-axis, k = 0 and r = 5.
Now, the equation of the circle becomes (x – h)2 + y2 = 25.
It is given that the circle passes through point (2, 3).
