Question 16:

If, is equidistant from and , find the values of x. Also, find the distances QR and PR.

Answer:

It is given that Q is equidistant from P and R. Using Distance Formula, we get

Squaring both sides, we get

Thus, Q is or .

Using Distance Formula to find QR, we get

Using value of

Therefore,

Using Distance Formula to find , we get

Using value of

Using value of

Therefore,
