A and B are the points (3, 4) and (5, -2). find the coordinates of point P such that PA = PB and the area of triangle PAB = 10.

### Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM

Expert Answer:

Let the coordinates of point P be (x, y).

PA = PB

_{}Area of triangle PAB = 10

_{}

By solving equation (1) and (2), we get

x = 7 and y = 2.

Therefore, the co-ordinates of point P is (7, 2).
