We complete the square as we did in an earlier example above.

First, we collect the x parts together and the y parts together, then divide throughout by 3.




Then we complete the square on the x part. We do not need to do so for the y part because there is no single y term (only a y2 term).




So the circle has centre `(2,0)` and has radius `sqrt(8/3)~~1.63`.

circle center (2,0)
