Find all points that are 13 units away from the point (-2,7) and that lie on the line x - 2y = 10. Give your answer as a list of points separated by semicolons, with the points ordered such that their x-coordinates are in increasing order. (So "(1,-3); (2,3); (5,-7)" - without the quotes - is a valid answer format.)

Hello Guest!

 

\(y=-\sqrt{13^2-(x+2)^2}+7\\ x - 2y = 10 \\-2y=10-x\\ y=\dfrac{x}{2}-5\)

\(\color{blue}-\sqrt{13^2-(x+2)^2}+7=\dfrac{x}{2}-5\\ -\sqrt{13^2-(x+2)^2}=\dfrac{x}{2}-12\\ +\sqrt{13^2-(x+2)^2}=12-\dfrac{x}{2}\\ 169-(x+2)^2=144-12x+\dfrac{x^2}{4}\\ 169-x^2-4x-4=144-12x+\dfrac{x^2}{4}\)

\(1.25x^2-8x-21=0\)

\(x = {8 \pm \sqrt{64+4\cdot 1.25\cdot 21} \over 2\cdot 1.25}\)

\(x=\dfrac{8\pm 13}{2.5}\\ y=\dfrac{x}{2}-5\)

\(\mathbb L=\{(-2,-6);(8.4,-0.8)\}\)
