    I'm assuming you're talking about a locus of point, i.e if you move a point the shape formed.

    I know a little about them. Usually I try to graph them and then use the graph to write the equation.

    sounds like topology

    It's a mix of topology and geometry

    line m and then the condition is a set distance r from line m

    The locus of point for that should be two lines, one on either side of line m (unless you are in three space, then it's an open cylinder with radius r).

    In fact I would assume you are in three space if you are discussing a locus of points so you should have an open cylinder of infinite height and radius r.

    If you want two lines then they are parallel to m so they will have the same slope and if you use the distance formula you can find points on the other two lines and use those to write the equations.
