## 01 - Circle tangent to a given line and center at another given line

**Problem 1**

A circle is tangent to the line 2*x* - *y* + 1 = 0 at the point (2, 5) and the center is on the line *x* + *y* = 9. Find the equation of the circle.

## The Circle

**Definition of circle**

The locus of point that moves such that its distance from a fixed point called the center is constant. The constant distance is called the radius, r of the circle.
