Two points, A and B, are given in the plane. Describe the set of points X such that:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]AX^2 + BX^2 = AB^2[/tex]

I'm not really sure how to start this off. I've drawn the circle and a line going from A to B with a midpoint AB at the origin (AB).

I also, solved for X which is:

[tex]X=\frac{AB}{\sqrt{A+B}}[/tex]

Also, I could probably even use the Distance and Mid-point formula but, I really don't know what to do from here.
