Two points, A and B, are on the Cartesian plane at (1,4) and (9,6).
A. What point on the xaxis is equidistant from each of these two points?
B. What point on the yaxis is equidistant from these two points?
xaxis:
√6²+<9x>²=√4²+<1x>²
solving gives > x=5
yaxis:
√9²+<6x>²=√1²+<4x>²
solving gives > y=25
** Note: I can't get it to show up right on the screen but that Square root symbol encompasses each side of the equation. It's actually not needed (since it cancels out), but I through it in to clarify the structure (or at least attempt to). Thanks...
