To determine

To find:

The locus of points that are equidistant from two fixed points.

Explanation

Definition:

A locus is set of all points and only those points that satisfy a given set of conditions.

It must be noted that, the phrase “all points and only those points” has dual meaning as follows:

1. All points of the locus satisfy the given condition.

2. All points satisfying the given locus conditions are included in the locus.
