Start with the circle you see below. Then put the circle on the coordinate system.
Finally, label the circle to show the center and a point on the circle.
Notice that (h, k) is the center of the circle and (x, y) is a point on the circle. The distance between (h, k) and (x, y) is the length of the radius.

Distance formula = √ | (x_{1} - x_{2})^{2} + (y_{1} - y_{2})^{2} |
