Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got \[(1\frac{ \sqrt{30} }{ 4 }, 112\frac{ \sqrt{30} }{ 4 })\] and \[(1+\frac{ \sqrt{30} }{ 4 }, 1+12\frac{ \sqrt{30} }{ 4 })\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I made 2 equations: 1. Using the slope equation: \[\frac{ y1 }{ x+1 } = 3\] 2. Then used the distance formula to make the second equation: \[2\sqrt{3} = \sqrt{(y1)^2 + (x+1)^2}\] Do you follow so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13. The I solve for y in the first equation and substitute it in equation 2: \[y = 3x+4\] Substitute in equations 2: \[2\sqrt{3} = \sqrt{(3x+41)^2 +(x+1)^2}\] 4. Square both sides to get rid of the parentheses: \[(2\sqrt{3})^2 = (3x+3)^2 +(x+1)^2\] 5. Multiply out everything, put all the values on one side then solve for x using the quadratic formula: \[12 =10x^{2}+20x+10\]
