Reciprocation

Given a circle (x-1)^2+(y+1)^2=16 and a point (5,6),what will be the reciprocation line of this point?

Re: Reciprocation

Have you tried first finding the inverse of the point with respect to the circle?

Re: Reciprocation

How far did you make it with the problem?

Re: Reciprocation

Hi,if my calculations are correct then the inversion point is (129/65,47/65)
EDIT:the problem isn't as hard as i thaught,i am getting the line 4x+7y+13=0,is it correct?

Re: Reciprocation

Everything is correct except it should be -13 in the line equation. Good job!
