My question is to :

Prove that the perpendicular bisector of the two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2), in general form, is given by

Ax + By = C

where

A= 2(x2-x1), B= 2(y2 -y1) and C= y2^2 - y1^2 + x2^2 - x1^2

Help me with this proving things.

Thanks

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Don't know where to start.

I have no idea.
