Page 169 - A point moves so that the square of its distance from the base of an isosceles triangle is equal to the product of its distances from the other two sides.
Page 79 - A point moves so that the difference of the squares of its distances from two fixed points is constant. Show that the locus is a straight line. Hint. Draw XX' through the fixed points, and YY/ through their middle point.
