## Question

### Solution

Correct option is

x2 + y2 – 8x – 10 y + 39 = 0

Let the equation of the circle be

x2 + y2 + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0                 …(1)

since the circle passes through the origin, we get c = 0 and given the intercepts on x and y axes are a and b

∴

∴

Hence the equation of circle from (1) becomes
