The general equation of a circle is: `(x-h)^2 + (y - k)^2 = r^2`

`(h, k)` represents the center of the circle and `r` represents the radius of the circle.

Therefore, in the equation: `(x-4)^2 + (y+7)^2 = 64`

the center of the circle is (4, -7) and the radius = `sqrt(64) = 8`

**Final Answer: center is `(4, -7)` and radius is `8.` **

`(x-4)^2 + (y+7)^2 = 64`

The standard equation of a circle is:

`(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=r^2`

where (h,k) is the center and r is the radius.

Re-writing the given equation in that exact form, it becomes:

`(x-4)^2 + (y- (-7))^2=8^2`

**Therefore, the center of the circle is `(4,-7)` and its radius is 8.**
