# 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.

• -1

dont use section formula , you can get correct answer using distance formula

• 0

ha..  i get it.. Btw tanx..

• -1

let the coordinates of that point are (x,0) here the y ordinate is 0 because the point is on X axis which is to be found.

now its easy to sol
