Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you don't solve it , it's a definition. if you want to prove that it is not a square though, it is possible. are you interested ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a line, 3 cm from line m, a pair of parallel lines, each parallel to and 3 cm from line m, a sphere with a radius of 3 cm, or a circle with a diameter of 6 cm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if it is in a plane, then it is a circle with radius 3 if it is in a space, then it is a sphere with radius 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it you are looking for the locus of all points 3cm away from a line, then you have two lines that are parallel to line m one 3cm above it and the other 3cm below it
