...triangle In the triangle with vertices A , B , and C , let D , E and F be the feet of the perpendiculars from A , B and C , respectively, to the opposite sides, so that AD , BE and CF are the altitudes . The triangle DEF is called the pedal triangle. The altitudes of the original triangle bisect the angles of the pedal...

## equidistant Quick reference

### The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Mathematics (5 ed.)

...Being the same distance from one or more points or objects. The perpendicular bisector of the line segment AB is the set of points equidistant from A and B . The set of points equidistant from a fixed point is a circle in two dimensions and a sphere in three dimensions. The set of points equidistant from a line segment is formed by a pair of parallel line segments with two...

...the plane) is the set of all points in the plane that satisfy some given condition or property. For example, the locus of all points that are a given distance from a fixed point is a circle; the locus of all points equidistant from two given points, A and B , is the perpendicular bisector of AB . If, in a given coordinate system, a locus can be expressed in the form {( x , y ),| f ( x , y )=0}, the equation f ( x , y )=0 is called an equation of the locus (in the given coordinate system). The equation may be said to ‘represent’ the...
