First, determine the center of the circle by getting the midpoint of the points given for the circumference.                     midpoint = ((0 + 0)/2, (3 + -4)/2)                           midpoint (0, -0.5) Then, we get the radius by determining the distance from either of the circumferential point to the center.                          radius = √(0 -  0)² + (3 +4)²  = 7 The equation for the circle would be,                         x² + (y + 0.5)² = 7²
