## On to the Challenge!

Can you create the following graph using desmos.com or some other graphing tool? If you’re victorious, leave us a note in the comments when you’re done.

y^2+(x-rt(a))^2=abs(a)

replace (a) with (r), as r in parentheses auto translates to restricted symbol

To create my graph I used the equation for a circle, (x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2, and realized that if ‘h’ and ‘r’ are the same value and increase with each created circle, then the same pattern begins to emerge that was in the Daily Desmos.

I took the equation of a circle, (x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2, and after some experimentation with numerical values for h, k, and r, I realized that when h = r, the pattern from this Daily Desmos occurs. So, I set h = r but increased the value with each equation, creating the increasingly larger circles. I went up from 1 to 12 in the value of h and r.
