Many Thanks for your answer. I managed to solve it like this:

A(SQRT3,1) is given. B is (x,SQRT3) and C is C(A,B).I applied the

midpoint formula.

First of all I found A as 2x- SQRT3 and B=2SQRT3x-1.I replaced A in B.

B=(A+SQRT3)SQRT3-1.Then B=SQRT3A+2.If we replace A and B with X and Y,

it becomes y= SQRT3x+2 - Mar 23rd 2012, 10:01 PMearbothRe: An analytic Geometry Riddle about Locus.

Vectors are a different subject of analytic geometry in Turkey. Analytic Geometry subjects are: Analytic geometry:Lines ,tangents,symmetry vs..,Analytic of the circle,Vectors,Parabolia,Hyperbolia and Elips. Thanks again for you help.
