    I have to describe the locus of points equidistant from (0,2) and (6,0). and write the equation of the line that is formed when you plot those two points. Then write the equation of the locus that was described

    I can read that myself, but what keeps you from doing it?

    well, for (a) you can either use your imagination, or look up "line segment bisection". For (b) you can use the general form of a line \[(a+bx, c+dx)\] insert your two points A and B and find one solution for a, b, c and d in this general form. For c, that is straight forward calculation. Just write down the distance of an arbitrary point (x,y) to A and B and identify the two values in an equation et voilà. For d just insert the point P in your equation from c and check if it holds true.
