What is the x-coordinate of the point on the x-axis that is equidistant from points A(2,0) and \(B(0,6)\)?

To get the equidistant point (midpoint) of a line segment on a graph, all you need to do is to take the absolute value of the difference in x1 and x2, and y1 and y2, and divide it by 2, then that is the coordinate of your point.

 

Since the problem is only asking for the x coordinate, we can take the x coordinate from point A and divide it by 2, getting the x coordinate of the midpoint is 1.

 

That is the more detailed explanation for why the x coordinate is 1.
