To find the distance CB substitute the value of x in (5 - x ) Generalize this problem by replacing 5 by djSolution : x =. ... 5 which is the midpoint of AB . ... are to minimize the distance L . From the Pythagorean theorem we have L=J(8+x)2 + (1 -2iJ-1^)2= {X+8) ^ + 100 ai x x This equation can be programmed for the computer.
