hello ashutosh. first lets find the perpendicular distance of (3, – 1) from the line 2 x - 5y + 18 = 0.
it would be p= |2*3 – 5*-1 + 18|/sqrt(2^2+5^2)
= sqrt(29)
now, we know that a perpendicular from (3, -1) to the line (which acts as a chord to the circle) would also bisect it. so by pythagoras theorem,
r^2= p^2 + (6/2)^2 where r is radius
r^2= 29 + 9= 38
so, eqn of circle:
(x – 3)^2 + (y+1)^2= 38
or x^2 + y^2 – 6x + 2y – 28= 0
kindly approve :)
