Linear Equations related question
Alright so I've been trying to wrap my head around this for a bit now, got through most of it, but there's this one part that's just not clicking.

The question is for me to "Show that the origin, (0, 0), lies on the right bisector of AB."

The following is a copy/paste of the question I'm working on, my particular question starts at "c" which is about half way down, it also shows me the solution, but what I don't understand is the explanation of the solution, or what it's doing to prove that the origin lies on the right bisector of AB.

If you could explain it to me in in the simplest way possible as to how they're using the equation of the bisector to show this, it would be much appreciated.

Nevermind.

I took a break, had a cookie, punched a wall, came back, realized the 0's they were using were the coordinates of the origin to prove that it was on the line.

Thanks though!

Let be very blunt with you. From your post I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.
Why don't you post the actual question. But instead you post a solution to a question that you have not even stated.

So what is the actual question?

Hm, can you not see the picture that I attached to my post just below what you quoted?

I figured it out, so no need for help, just curious if you can actually see the attachment or not.
