A circle with center at $C(2,-2)$ and radius $2\sqrt{2}$ .
Gather terms containing x and y in separate parentheses $(x^{2}-4x)+(y^{2}+4y)=0$ Complete squares: $x^{2}-4x+4-4=(x-2)^{2}-4$ $y^{2}+4y+4-4=(y+2)^{2}-4$ The equation becomes $(x-2)^{2}-4+(y+2)^{2}-4=0$ $(x-2)^{2}+(y+2)^{2}=8$ A circle with center at $C(2,-2)$ and radius $2\sqrt{2}$ x-intercepts $:\quad$ $\left[\begin{array}{l} (x-2)^{2}+(0+2)^{2}=8\\ (x-2)^{2}+4=8\\ (x-2)^{2}=4\\ x-2=\pm 2 \\ x=2\pm 2\\ (0,0),\quad(4,0) \end{array}\right]$ y-intercepts $:\quad \left[\begin{array}{l} (0-2)^{2}+(y+2)^{2}=8\\ 4+(y+2)^{2}=8\\ (y+2)^{2}=4\\ y+2=\pm 2\\ y=-2\pm 2\\ y=0,\quad y=-4\\ (0,-4),\quad(0,0) \end{array}\right]$
