Let and .

  1. Find the distance from to .

    Make a sketch of the points and use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between the points.

  2. Write the equation of the perpendicular bisector for in point-slope form.

    You need a point (midpoint) and the slope of the perpendicular line so that you can use the point-slope form of a line.

    Find the midpoint by:

    Perpendicular slope would be negative the reciprocal of the slope between and .
