be n≥2 distinct points on a circle C
with center O and radius r. What is the
of points P inside C such that
| = n
,where the line Xi
P also intersects C at point Yi
(In reply to Solution
As an example, consider the circle x˛+y˛=1, with two given points: X1 = (1,0), and X2 = (-1,0), both lying on the circle.
If the locus sought in this case is a circular arc, what are you claiming is the center and radius of that circular arc? I'll assume that your claim is that all parts of such a defined circle that lie within the given circle constitute the arc that is the locus; otherwise specify what portion of the newly defined circle is the arc in question.
