  • General equation of a sphere $x^2+y^2+z^2+2ux+2vy+2wz+d=0$ centre $(-u, -v, -w)$ radius $ = \sqrt{u^2+v^2+w^2-d}$
The centre is at $ ( -u, -v, -w)$ where $ 2u=4, \: 2v=-8, \: 2w=2$ the centre is at $(2, -4, -1)$
The radius = $ \sqrt{u^2+v^2+w^2-d}$ with $ d=-5$
$ \therefore r = \sqrt{4+16+1+5} = \sqrt{26}$ units
