the locus is a circle - can you say what its radius is?
aroub
  • aroub
Yes, I can. But only if you told me how did you get it and which circle?
phi
  • phi
keeping O,N and M are collinear. means a fixed length (like a stick)
phi
  • phi
if M traces out the outer circle, what does the rest of the "stick" do?
aroub
  • aroub
Another circle? With radius OM?
cwrw238
  • cwrw238
no the radius is ON + (MN/2) - do you see why?

The other circle that will be formed is it like this? |dw:1352053569404:dw|

Great :D So how did you get the radius? It's OM + MN?
cwrw238
  • cwrw238
no!!! sorry - the circle rund in between the 2 original circles
phi
  • phi
The mid point of MN is between points M and N . As the radius OM traces out a circle, what does that mid point do?
aroub
  • aroub
But if you thought of it, they said that M traces on the outer circle keeping O,N and M collinear so it forms a circle outside?!
aroub
  • aroub
Aooh, wait! phi's answer makes more sense :P So it makes two other circles or just the circle between?
phi
  • phi
you put a dab of paint on the "stick" at the point halfway between M and N where is the "smear" as you turn the stick?
phi

  • aroub
The "smear" will be between the two circles forming a circle, right?
phi
  • phi
yes the radius is the "average" of ON and OM or (ON + OM)/2 which is the same as ON + NM/2

This was my last question in locus ( I think and I really hope so ) You're amazing, I'm not kidding :P I love how you think of locus! Like in a very simple way and understandable. Thank you soooooooo mucchhh!! :D
