Hello,

A mediator is perpendicular to the segment and passes throught the midpoint.

The coordinates of are

So the equation of the plan, which has as orthogonal vector, will be :

-----------------

With d to determine. And for this, you will have to use the fact that it goes throught the midpoint of AB.

Coordinates of the midpoint of [AB] : , that is to say .

This point is on the plane, so substitute and get d.

After that, divide the equation by 2. - June 29th 2008, 09:20 AMApprentice123
