```							You should remember the equation of circle in standard form such that:

The problem provides the coordinates (h,k) of center of circle, hence, you should substitute 3 for h and -1 for k in equation above such that:

Notice that the radius is not given but you may find it using the information provided by the problem.
The line that has the equation   and the length of 6 represents a chord of circle.
You may drop a perpendicular from the center of circle to this chord. The perpendicular line drops in the middle of this chord.
You may find the length of perpendicular using the formula:

Notice that ax+by+c represents the equation of chord and  , coordinates of the center.

Notice that the radius of circle represents the hypotenuse of right angle triangle that has the lengths of the legs   and 3.
Using Pythagorean theorem yields:

You may now write the equation of the circle such that:

Hence, evaluating the equation of circle under given conditions yields
