    find the equation of the perpendicular bisector of the line segment.................substitute the given point in this equation and check whether it satisfies the given equation............if it does the point lies on the perpendicular bisector else it doesn't

    u can use the distance formula to check if the distance of the point from the ends of the line is same

    But if it does not lie on the perpendicular bisector, then it will never be equal :)
