How to get the intersection of a locus and a line ?

I am trying to create the intersection of a locus and a line...see attached file.

Somehow it seems inpossible to do so...strange because it is however possible to put a point on a locus.

I have also tried to add the command " LocusEquation " but all I get is an error " unknown command".

There is something I am doing wrong, but I cannot figure out what.

Would you please have a look at my file and let me know how to get the intersection of the green locus and the red line ?


Thanks in advance.

You get the "Unknown command" as output of a LocusEquation() command when it's not possible to determine the equation of the locus. See https://wiki.geogebra.org/e...

For the same reason I guess that it's currently not possible to get intersections.

Anyway, in ancient times ;) Zbynek suggested a cool workaround.

See https://help.geogebra.org/t...

I'm attaching your file where I've created the objects defined in the linked post.
