    • Lines L1 and L2 are perpendicular.
    • P is the point of intersection.
    • A lies on L1, B lies on L2.
    • Isosceles triangles have two equal length sides.
    • You have just worked out the length of AP squared in the previous question.
    • As shown, B could lie in two possible positions for the length of AP to equal the length of BP.

    In order to work out the two possible positions, use the line equation of L2 to work out the position vector OB in terms of mu. Then work out the vector PB (or BP) in terms of mu.

    Use this information to form a quadratic equation in terms of mu to find the length of BP (or PB), setting it equal to AP squared (as the two lengths are equal).

    Does this help? I can write a solution if needs be.

    can I ask where the O in OB comes from as there is no O on the graph

    O is used to indicate the origin. The vector OB is the position vector of point B. In other words, the vector moved through to get from the origin of the graph at (0, 0, 0) to the point B.

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Well it was the 2009 one I think. There was a weird one where you has to find the volume of a solid using the Simpsons rule, will try and to C3 Jan 12 Jan 13 Jun 13 and Jun 14 tomorrow and Thursday as well as trying a fee more pilot questions . Are you just gonna be doing pilot questions now?
