Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you have an equation you want the distance from (0,b) to (4,4) to be the same as the distance from (0,b) to (4,3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes I used two distance formula for (0,b)(4,4) and (0,b)(4,3) and i got 248b+b^2=25+6b+b^2 which i got 1/14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\sqrt{(04)^2+(b4)^2}=\sqrt{(04)^2+(b(3))^2} \\ \\ \text{ square both sides } \\ (04)^2+(b4)^2=(04)^2+(b(3))^2\] now 04 is 4 and (4)^2 =16 also b(3) is the same as b+3 so you have: \[16+(b4)^2=16+(b+3)^2 \\ \text{ subtract 16 on both sides } (b4)^2=(b+3)^2\] is this what you try to solve ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this means you either have b4=b+3 or b4=(b+3) see which one of these equations gives you a solution
