In the xy-plane, the center of circle C is at point (0,0). If the point (−5,5) is on the circumference of the circle, what is the radius of the circle?


A 5

B 10

C 7.5

D 5√2

E 10√2


use distance formula and determine distance between 0,0 and -5,5
which would give us radius
5 sqrt 2
IMO D

These sort of questions are best done when you visualize them

IMO D

The point is present in 2nd Quadrant, which will make a 45-45-90 triangle
with two sides = 5 and hypotenuse will be the radius = 5√2

x^2 + y^2 = r^2 - is the formula when the centre of a circle is origion.

Therefore, (-5)^2 + (5)^2 = r^2
50 = 5sqrt2 = r^2
