The form you want is probably (x-a)+(y-b)=r because this is a circumference.

let me just show you a first approach to this type of transformations before moving on to your problem.

if you have an expression like this:
x+px+q
you can ALWAYS transform that into something like (x+z)

x+px+q=(x+z) ; p,q and zeR
x+px+q=x+2zx+z
px+q=2zx+z

now we only need to solve the system to find p and q
|px=2zx
|q=z


Now lets apply the above method.
x+y+9x-8y=0
(x+9x+q1)+(y-8y+q2)-q1-q2=0
lets work each square separately:

x+9x+q1=(x+z)
x+9x+q1=x+2xz+z
9x+q1=2zx+z

|9x=2zx  |z=9/2
|q1=z    |q1=81/4

ok! we just found that
(x+9x+q1)+(y-8y+q2)-q1-q2=0
is equivalent to:
(x+9/2)+(y-8y+q2)-81/4-q2=0

Repeat the procedure for y.
y-8y+q2=(y+z)
y-8y+q2=y+2zy+z
-8y+q2=2zy+z

|-8y=2zy  |z=-4
|q2=z      |q2=16

lets replace again in the first expression...
(x+9/2)+(y-4)-81/4-16=0
(x+9/2)+(y-4)-145/4=0
(x+9/2)+(y-4)=145/4

Remember also that the radius of this circumference is r=145/4 => r=(√145)/2

-----------------------------
And here you have your 'standard form':
(x+9/2)+(y-4)=145/4

the equation i just wrote is general forum (AX^2+Cy^2+Dx+Ey+F=0
i need convert standard form, the standard form for circle is
(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=1
___        ___
  a^2       b^2

what do you mean with 'standard form?'

x^2+y^2+9x-8y=0

__________________
x^2+9x+(81/160)+y^2-8y+16=0
(x+9/4)^2+9y-40^2=(81/16)(16)
                             = (337/16)....
then i didn't know how to solve the rest of it..
plz help me ... thanx
