    cartesian inequality

    Find the Cartesian inequation for the region represented by
    abs(z+9-9i)<=1/7*abs(z-3-2i)

    Please put your answer in a "natural" form
    What is the centre of that circle for real numbers x, y
    What is the radius of the circle

    The locus of points satisfied by the relation is

    If any one knows where there are good online math resources to do with cartesian inequations can you let me know
    Thanks

    Hello, samdmansam!

    Find the Cartesian inequality for the region represented by:
    |z+9-9i| \;\leq \; \frac{1}{7}|z-3-2i|

    Write your answer in a "natural" form.
    What is the centre of that circle?
    What is the radius of the circle?
    We have: . \bigg|z-(-9+9i)\bigg| \;\leq\; \frac{1}{7}\bigg|z - (3+2i)\bigg|


    We are given two points on the complex plane: . A(-9,9)\:\text{ and }\:B(3,2)

    We want all points P(x,y) such that: . d(PA)  \:\leq \:\frac{1}{7}\,d(PB)

    . . d(PA) \;=\;\sqrt{(x+9)^2 + (y-9)^2}\qquad d(PB) \;=\;\sqrt{(x-3)^2 + (y-2)^2}


    We have: . \sqrt{(x+9)^2 + (y-9)^2} \;\leq \;\frac{1}{7}\sqrt{(x-3)^2 + (y-2)^2}

    . . which simplifies to: . 48x^2 + 888x + 48y^2 - 878y + 7925 \;\leq \;0


    Now complete the square to find the center and radius of this circle.
    . .
    We want all points on and inside the circle.

    Good luck!
