1. ## Urgent help with coordinate geometry: perp. distance

Need help with this qustion from coordinate geometry:

Write down the equation of any line through the point (-4, 2).
Hence find the equations of the two lines through the point (-4, 2) whose perpendicular distance from the origin is 2.

2. The distance from the origin to your line is given by $\frac{|C|}{\sqrt{A^{2}+B^{2}}}=2$
You also have $-4A+2B+C=0$
