coordinates of triangle ABC are A(1,5) B(4,4) C(8,6). Given that P is the foot of the perpendicular from A to BC, find eqn of P and coordinates of P. I do not understand the question, wat does it mean by the foot?
Foot is the point where the perpendicular line segment intersects the line segment BC.
I still don really know how to do this question. Am i correct to find the slope of BC and then find the slope of the perpendicular line and then find the two eqn and then solve it?
Thanku very much i can find all the points already. however there is more last part that i dont know how to solve which is the length of perpendicular from B to AC.
