    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

    I always think of Pythagorean when it comes to right triangles

    that is absolutely correct!

    But what does this theorem got to do with the locus?

    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 =)

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

    In the end it's circle right?
