If the lines 3x-4y-7=0 and 2x-3y-5=0 are two diameters of a circle of area 49π square units, then what is the equation of the circle?

Solution :

Area = 49π

π\(r^2\) = 49π

r = 7

Now find the coordinates of center of circle by solving the given two equations of diameter.

By solving the above equation through elimination method we get,

x = 1 and y =-1

which are the coordinates of center of circle.

Now the general equation of circle is \((x-a)^2\)  + \((y-b)^2\) = \(r^2\)

\((x-1)^2\)  + \((y+1)^2\) = \(7^2\)

\((x-1)^2\)  + \((y+1)^2\) = 49
