    The distance from A to (-3,3,7) = the distance from (-3,3,7) to B. (assuming (-3,3,7) is your answer to a)

    Sketch looks good yea

    bisect means to cut in half, so in this context it means to cut the line segment AB in half

    But where is b though? I can't visualize where it is positioned at. Opposite A ? The question does not state b is on any line.

    since line 2 is perpendicular to line 1 and A lies on line 1 then B must also lie on line 1, on the opposite side

    its very similar to me asking you to "reflect the point (-3,0) in the y axis"

    since the point lies on the x axis and you want to reflect it in the y axis (which are two perpendicular lines) then you know the reflection point must also lie on the x axis, does that make sense? (ignore the red dot the lower right, i didnt mean that whoops)
