Check whether the circle with centre at the point (2,4) and radius 5 units pass through the point (2,0). Write the coordinates of the points at which this circle cuts the x-axis?

Hi, The equation of circle will be x-22+y-42= 52= 25 Now if it passes through 2,0 then 2-22+16=25 16=25But it is not true so it does not pass through the given points.Now if it cuts x -axis then y =  0x-2= 5 x = 7 So the points is 7,0Regards
