No, this one no idea at all!! Lol, I was about to say not circle.. Umm, how? They didn't say at a given distance or a given point, right?

and we can use exactly the same diagram we used in last question

*guess

I always think of Pythagorean when it comes to right triangles
hartnn

that is absolutely correct!

But what does this theorem got to do with the locus?
hartnn
  • hartnn
using pythagoras theorem and distance formula , we get the equation of locus in the form , \(x^2+y^2=a^2\) which is the equation of circle.

please please don't use them here.. because they're more confusing! And I never took them. Do you have any other way? If not.. Just leave this question aside =)

* \(\\~ \large (x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=a^2\)

question left ...
