Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first we need to find two point the same distance away from each equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the first point can the intersection of the two line s y=33x y=3x3 y=y 33x=3x3 6x=6 x=1 therefore y =0 (0,1) we just need one more point and then we make an equation for that line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so whats the next step to get the last point @benice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so we could pick say y =6 for both lines y=3x3 6=3x3 3x=9 x=3 (3,6) y=33x 6=33x 3=3x x=1 (dw:1332966561289:dw1,6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in my poor drawing we have two points on the lines... you need to find the midpoint of the line to get your second point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the formula to find the midpoint again @benice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be (3+1) /2 ,( 6+6) /2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and that is ( 1,6 ) the final answerr ? @benice ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then what do you do after that to solve the problem ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0remeber we need to find an equation that equal distance from both lines so we decide we would get two points (0,1) (1,6) now with these two points equal distance from both the lines this means they are on the line we are looking for so ,... how do the equation of the line with two points?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry the points are (1,0) (1,6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so now we have what we need to find the locus ? @benice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh you see i didnt even know you responded back __  what is the formula for line equation ? @benice
