## Question

### Solution

Correct option is

The co-ordinates of the centres and radii of three given circles are as given below:

and

Let C ≡ (hk) be the centre of the circle passing through the centresC1(0, 2), C2(–6, –2) and C3(–3, –6).

Then          CC1 = CC2 = CC3

or                 3h + 2k + 9 = 0                      …(1)

and              6h – 8k – 5 = 0                       …(2)

solving (1) and (2), we get

Hence equation of required circle is
