Set of points equidistant from two points

  1. Feb 5, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find an equation of the set of all points equidistant from the points A(-1,5,3) and B(6,2,-2). Describe the set.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Um, I've drawn a graph of the two points and that's about as far as I could get. I know the answer should be a plane going between the two points... but how do I find the equation?

    Do you know how to write a generic equation for a plane?
