Hint: We have to find the equation of the given circle. So, first we have to find the centre of the given circle and then find the radius of the given circle. Then using the equation of the circle in general form, find the equation of the given circle.

1.Equation of a circle when the centre is not an Origin: Let $C(a,b)$ be the centre of the circle and
$p(x,y)$ be any point on the circle, the radius of a circle is ‘ $r$ ’. Then the equation of the circle with centre $\left( {a,b} \right)$ and the radius of a circle $r$ is given by
${\left( {x - a} \right)^2} + {\left( {y - b} \right)^2} = {r^2}$ ---(1)
Equation of a circle when the centre is an Origin: Let $p(x,y)$ be any arbitrary point on the circle. Let $r$ be the radius of a circle and with the centre at the origin. Then equation of the circle is given by
${x^2} + {y^2} = {r^2}$ --(2)
2.In the given circle $( - 1,1)$ is the centre of the circle. Since the point $\left( {2,1} \right)$ is on the circle. Then radius is equal to distance between any point on the circle and the centre of the circle.
Hence $r = \sqrt {{{(2 - ( - 1))}^2} + {{(1 - 1)}^2}} = 3units$
Then the equation of the given circle is ${\left( {x + 1} \right)^2} + {\left( {y - 1} \right)^2} = 9$ .
