Step 1

1 of 4The equation of a circle is given by the following formula:

$(x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2$

with $(h, k)$ being the coordinates of the center and $r$ the radius of the circle.

Having the endpoints of the diameter we can calculate its value:

$d=\sqrt{(9-3)^2+(12-4)^2}=\sqrt{100}=10$

Then we will calculate the radius:

$r=\dfrac{d}{2}=5$
