Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But what does this theorem got to do with the locus?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1using 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.
