Show that the equation represents a circle by rewriting it in standard form, and find the center and radius of the circle.

Re-organization the equation putting x and y terms together:

x^2 - 2x + y^2 + 8y = -16

(x -1)^2 + (y+4)^2 = -16 +1 + 16

therefore, (x - 1)^2 + (y+4)^ = 1

center is (1,-4) radius is 1
