Is the intersection of two lines x + y = 8 and 4y - 4x=16 inside the circle: x^2 + y^2 = r^2

(1) r = 81
(2) The center of the circle is at the coordinate (-99,-99)

I doubt on OA , plz explain if you've got the right answer.

Thanks.

To find the intersection of two lines, you have to solve the system of equations:

x + y = 8
4y - 4x=16

Personally I would multiply the first by 4 => 4x + 4y = 8*4 and sum it to the second => 4x + 4y +4y-4x=16+ 8*4 or 8y=48, y=6.
Now substitute the value of y into one of the two equations (does not matter which one) => x + 6 = 8 , x=2.
Point of intersection (2,6).

Hope it's clear.

Great that helps +1 ! Also the equation of the circle x^2+ y^2 =r^2 , does this equation mean that the circle is centered at the origin, passes through xand y and has a radius r?

Yes.
The equation of a circle is (x-a)^2+(y-b)^2=r^2, where the point (a,b) is the center, and here is (0,0); and r is the radius.

The circle passes through the point (x,y) that satisfy that equation.

We ahve two known lines and hence we can find the point of intersection. We need to find whether that point of intersection falls within a circle with centre at the origin and radius "r".

1) Radius can be found and hence circle can be plotted and whether the point falls within the circle or not can be determined. Sufficient.

2) I doubt this statement as it is contradictory to both the question statement and statement 1.

If we know the radius and center , then we can determine whether a point lies in the circle or not.

By question statement it seems that center is at 0,0 if x and y are actual coordinates not the shifted ones

Option B changes the question statement by shifting the coordinates 99 down and left and tells nothing about radius - so not sufficient.

Please can body elaborate more on this? How can we find the point of intersection if equation of two lines are given?

Point of intersection (2,6).
