A calculator to find the points of intersection of a circle and a line.
(x - h)2 + (y - k)2 = r2
The equation of the circle of the form
and the equation of the line is of the slope intercept form
y = m x + b
How to use the calculator?
1 - Enter the parameters h, k and r, where h and k are the coordinates of the center of the circle and r its radius and is positive. Then enter the slope of the line m and its y intercept b and the number of decimal places desired and then press "enter". The x and y coordinates of the two points of intersection (1) and (2) are displayed.
Note that you may have two points of intersection, one point of intersection or no points of intersection.
