    The point in the first quadrant at which the line intersects the circle is; ; (√5, 2√5+1).

    Which point in the first quadrant does the line intersects the circle?

    Since the equation of a circle whose radius is 5 and center is; (0, 1) is as follows;
    (x-0)² + (y-1)² = 5².
    Hence, since the line, y = 2x +1, intersects the circle in the first quadrant;
    By substitution, we have;
    x² + (2x+1-1)² = 25
    5x² = 25
    x² = 5.
    Hence, x = ±√5, more specifically, x = √5 in the first quadrant and hence, y = 2√5 +1.
    The required point is therefore; (√5, 2√5+1).
