2 points on line 1, with a fixed distance to line 2
Dan Strand shared this question 5 years ago
I'm still new to GeoGebra and this time i'm trying to place 2 points on a line, with a certain distance to another line.
I have 2 lines, l and m, which intersect eachother. On line l, i want to create 2 points, each which have the exact distance of 5 to line m. That means one point on each side of the intersection of course. Hope this makes sense to you?
I've tried searching/googling my way for help on this, but I'm stuck. Don't know how to approach this really in geogebra..
So I was hoping for some expert help from you guys (again..) Thanks
See the attached file for the lines, nothing else has been added..
- Define two random points on m
- construct in each of them a circle with radius 5
- construct the tangents to both circles
- the points you are searching for are the intersections of thes tangents with l.
