Please consider "Completing the Square" for the y-portions.

$$(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=R^2$$ is a circle that is centred at $$(h,k)$$ that has radius $$R>0$$.
Thus with this problem we have
$$x^2+y^2+16y+k=0\\(x-0)^2+(y+8)^2-64+k=0\\x^2+(y+8)^2=64-k$$
Now we are told that the radius is $$10$$ , so what?

I need to find answer for c part??????????
Did you calculate the value of k?

Beer soaked hint follows.
Here the wrkings
Incorrect as noted in post #12.
Requirement (a) was already worked out for you by pka at post #5.
For requirement (b), you are asked to solve for k.
The problem states that the radius is 10.
You should first determine what the value of k is by equating 64 - k with $$\displaystyle 10^2$$, or solve for k in $$\displaystyle 64 - k = 10^2$$
After you do that, more hints will come your way.

I don't think that a spoon is enough. Possibly the OP wants to be spoon fed?
