A curve is traced by a point P (x,y) which moves such that its distance from the point A (-1,1) is three times its distance from the point B (2,-1). Determine the equation.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

used distance formulas to find A is the squareroot of 13 away from B.

how do i find the curve
