Recall the equation for a circle with center ( h , k ) ( h , k ) and radius r r . At what point in the first quadrant does the line with equation y = 2 x + 1 y = 2 x + 1 intersect the circle with radius 5 and center (0, 1)?

1. 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).
