5 X2  + 2X + 5 Y2  - 3y  -19 = 0

5 ( X2 + 2/5 X ) + 5 ( Y2 - 3y ) = 19

5 ( X2  + 2/5 X + 1/25)  + 5 ( Y2 -3/5y +9/100  ) = 19 +1/5  + 45/100

5 ( X + 1/5 ) 2  + 5 ( Y - 3/10)2 = (1900 + 20 + 100)/100

( X + 1/ 5)  + ( Y - 3/10)2  = 2020/ 500 = 4.04 (**)

Centre: ( -1/5, 3/10)  radius = 2

So, basically have to convert the expression to the form of ( **), by adding and subtracting quantities from both sides
first you factor out 5 from 5X2, 5 Y2
then make every parenthesis a perfect square, by adding quantities on both sides, and simplify it.

See my answer to your previous question. Here you first need to divide by 5. Then proceed like I did in the previous example.
