Chapter 7 - Section 7.1 - Locus of Points - Exercises: 23


The locus is a line that is parallel to the original line.

Work Step by Step

Recall, a locus is equidistant from the line no matter where you are. Therefore, first construct the original line. Then, draw a line (which is red in the diagram) that is the same distance from the original line at all points. Any line that is parallel to the original line is a valid answer.
