what is the easy way to derive formula of a circle?

The standard form equation of a circle is a way to express the definition of a circle on the coordinate plane.
Remember that a circle is a locus of points. A circle is all of the points that are a fixed distance, known as the radius, from a given point, known as the center of the circle.
On the coordinate plane, the formula becomes
(x-x0)&sup2; + (y-y0)&sup2; = R&sup2;,
where (x0;y0) is a the center of the circle. Here we used the Pythagorean theorem.
