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?
(In reply to
pretty easy by DuCk)
The segment connecting the points has slope = 1/5
The perpendicular bisector of the segement has slope 5 and passes through the point (4,5). Its equation is y=5x+25
(Recall every point on the perp. bisector is equidistant from the endpoints)
This line has yint.=25 and xint=5
