Textbook Problem

*In Review Exercises 7 to 13, sketch and describe the locus in a plane.*

Find the locus of points equidistant from the sides of

Expert Solution

To determine

**To find:** The locus of points equidistant from the sides of

**Given:**

The

**Theorem used:**

The locus of points in a plane and equidistant from the sides of an angle is the angle bisector.

**Calculation:**

Consider the given figure

By the theorem, we get the locus as the angle bisector as shown below

From, the figure we see that *BD* bisects
