$(h,k)=(-\frac{1}{4},-1)$ and $r= 1$

Work Step by Step

An equation of the circle with center $(h,k)$ and radius $r$ is given as: $(x-h)^{2}+(y-k)^{2}=r^{2}$ ...(1) Given: $16x^{2}+16 y^{2}+8x +32y+1= 0$ The above equation can be written in the standard equation of the circle as follows: $(x-(-\frac{1}{4}))^{2}+ (y-(-1))^{2} =1^{2}$ Compare it with equation (1), we have Hence, center,$(h,k)=(-\frac{1}{4},-1)$ and $r= 1$
