## The perpendicular bisector of a line XY is the locus of a point.

• A. Which moves on the line XY
• B. Which is equidistant from the point X and Y
• C. Whose from Y is always twice its distance from Y
• D. Whose distance from X is always twice its distance from Y

B

## SOLUTION…

The line joining two points X and Y can be bisected at the middle so that another perpendicular line passing through this middle will always be of equal distance from both points. This line which will always be of equal distance from the two points is its locus.
