<p>The equation of a circle <code>C</code> is <code><var>expr(["+", X2T, Y2T])</var> = <var>R * R</var></code>.</p>
<p>What are its center <code>(h, k)</code> and its radius <code>r</code>?</p>

<p>The equation of a circle with center <code>(h, k)</code> and radius <code>r</code> is <code>(x - h)^2 + (y - k)^2 = r^2</code>.</p>
<p>We can rewrite the given equation as <code>(x - <var>negParens(H)</var>)^2 + (y - <var>negParens(K)</var>)^2 = <var>R</var>^2</code>.</p>
<p>Thus, <code>(h, k) = (<var>H</var>, <var>K</var>)</code> and <code>r = <var>R</var></code>.</p>
