from the straight line BC. Find


the equation of the locus of P
3. The point A is (-1, 3) and the point B
is (4, 6). The point P moves such that
PA : PB = 2 : 3.
Find the equation of the locus of P

1. Diagram 5 shows the straight line AB
which is perpendicular to the straight
line CB at the point B

AB intersects the x-axis at point A


and intersects the y-axis at point B
