Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all the points on line p are equidistant from bot m and n agreed?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, if the point C is on line p, then there are two points 5 meters on either side of C on line P, which are equidistant from both m and n But if C is anywhere else except on the line P, there is only one point on line p which is 5 meters from C which is equidistant from both m and n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0C  line m  line p  line n C If C is either above line m or below line n, then it cannot be 5 meters away from line p. Do you understand how I made that assumption?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in your problem, you have a figure attached to the problem? Point C is on line n is it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then there is only one point on line P which is 5 meters from point c. So if you draw a perpendicular line from line n to line p, the length of the perpendicular line will be 5 meters. The point where the perpendicular intersects line p is the only point which is 5 meters away from point c and also equidistant from both line m and line n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'm sorry i don't understand:[ because there is no line p..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0line p is in the middle of line m and line n correct? so all the points on line p are equidistant from line m and line n. are you with me so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but we need to find out how many points are both equidistant from line m and n AND are 5 meters away. so what should you do to find out all the points 5 meters away from point c?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just tell me how you will find out all the points at a distance 5 meters from a point C.
