Find the point on the x axis which is equidistant from (2, -5) and (-2,9) ........ here it is said that since the point is on x axis, y coordinate = 0. Bt if v use section formula of (Y1 + Y2) / 2, we dont get Y = 2.

hw is it so??

RELLY CONFUSINGGGGG..!!!!!!

waiting fr a satisfiable reply...

In the question, we have to find a point on the *x* axis which is equidistant from (2, -5) and (-2,9).

So, we will use distance formula to calculate it not section formula.

Section formula is used when we are to find the ratio in which a point divides a given line segment.
