Let the coordinates of the point be given by x and y distance between A and the point is given by $d_{1}=\sqrt{(x-x_{A})^2+(y-y_{A})^2}$ where xA and yA are coordinates of the point A similarly distance between B and the point xB and yB coordinates of point B $d_{2}=\sqrt{(x-x_{B})^2+(y-y_{B})^2}$ $\frac{d_{1}}{d_{2}}=\frac{1}{2}$ solve it further

Do you know the distance formula ??

6. anonymous

yes

What I've done is simply used the distance formula...

ok
