Find the eqation of thge set of points P, the sum of whose distances

Asked by prashant.jain | 16th Apr, 2010, 10:15: AM

Expert Answer:

Let the point be (x,y,z).

Distance from A = [(x-4)2 + y2 + z2]

Distance from B = [(x+4)2 + y2 + z2]

Sum of the two distances,

[(x-4)2 + y2 + z2] + [(x+4)2 + y2 + z2] = 10

This is the required equation.
