My question is:
Find the equation of the locus of a point P(x,y) that moves so that it is equidistant from the x-axis and the y-axis, please tell me step by step all the working out please
Hello, moeyfrompunchy!
Did you even bother to make a sketch?
Find the equation of the locus of a point
that moves so that it is equidistant from the -axis and the -axis.Code:| P B + - - - - *(x,y) | x : | : | : y | : | : ----+---------+---- | A |
The point is
Its distance from the -axis is: .
Its distance from the -axis is: .
We want these distances to be equal: .
How hard was that?
