Which of the following gives the equation for the circle in the standard (x,y) coordinate plane with a center at (4,-8) and a circumference of 10π square coordinate units?
(A) (x - 4)2 + (y + 8)2 = 25 (B) (x - 4)2 + (y + 8)2 = 100 (C) (x + 8)2 + (y - 4)2 = 25 (D) (x + 8)2 - (y - 4)2 = 100 (E) (x + 8)2 + (y - 4)2 = 100
Correct Answer: A
