point c has coordinates (c, 2) and point d has coordinates (6, d). the line y 4x = 11 is the perpendicular bisector of CD. Find c and d.


I know the new line will have a gradient of 1/4, but other than that, I am really confused. Help please

yh, thank you, but as I said that was the one bit I knew haha y+ 4x = 11, so new gradient is 1/4

One possible approach using early AS knowledge
1. Form an equation in c and d for the gradient between the two points that you know = 1/4
2. Work out the mid point in terms of c and d. You know this point lies on the given equation so substitute in to form a second equation in c and d
3 solve the simultaneous equations

Would the midpoint of those points satisfy the equation y+4x=11 ?
