and what should i do if i'll use the distance formula since i have to show that the (-2,2) and (-4,3) passes through (-5,-2). i also tried to solve it using the equation you provided (x+5)^2+(y+2)^2=25, here it is:

((-2)+5)^2 + (2+2)^2 =25


((-4)+5)^2 + (3+2)^2 =26

was it correct??? since the (-2,2) has the same answer with the equation (x+5)^2+(y+2)^2=25 so i concluded that the point (-2,2) passes through (-5,-2) am i correct??? O.o
