Locus Problems(get rid of the ps and qs)

We find the locus of a point.

Locus Problems(get rid of the ps and qs)

We find the locus of a point.

1 Find the coordinates of the point whose locus you are finding.

2

Find the coordinates of the point whose locus you are finding.

Look for the relationship between the x and y values (i.e. get rid of the parameters)

Find the coordinates of the point whose locus you are finding.

Look for the relationship between the x and y values (i.e. get rid of the parameters)

a) Type 1: already no parameter in the x or y value.

Find the coordinates of the point whose locus you are finding.

Look for the relationship between the x and y values (i.e. get rid of the parameters)

a) Type 1: already no parameter in the x or y value.e.g. (p + q, 3)

a) Type 1: already no parameter in the x or y value.e.g. (p + q, 3) locus is y = 3

b) Type 2: obvious relationship between the values, usually only one parameter.
