If (−3, 2) Lies on the Circle X2 + Y2 + 2gx + 2fy + C = 0 Which is Concentric with the Circle X2 + Y2 + 6x + 8y − 5 = 0, Then C = - Mathematics

MCQ

If (−3, 2) lies on the circle x2 + y2 + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0 which is concentric with the circle x2 + y2 + 6x + 8y − 5 = 0, then c =

Options

• 11

• -11

• 24

• none of these

Solution

−11

The centre of the circle x2 + y2 + 6x + 8y − 5 = 0 is (−3, −4).
The circle x2 + y2 + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0 is concentric with the circle x2 + y2 + 6x + 8y − 5 = 0.
Thus, the centre of x2 + y2 + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0 is (−3, −4).

$\therefore g = 3, f = 4$

Also, it is given that (−3, 2) lies on the circle x2 + y2 + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0.

$\left( - 3 \right)^2 + 2^2 + 2\left( 3 \right)\left( - 3 \right) + 2\left( 4 \right)\left( 2 \right) + c = 0$

$\Rightarrow 9 + 4 - 18 + 16 + c = 0$

$\Rightarrow c = - 11$
