Distance problem 2

A=(x,2x)
B=(2x,1)
Distance AB=√2, find value of x

Correct result:

x1 =  1
x2 =  -0.2

Solution:

(x2x)2+(2x1)2=2  (x2x)2+(2x1)2=2  5x24x1=0  a=5;b=4;c=1 D=b24ac=4245(1)=36 D>0  x1,2=b±D2a=4±3610 x1,2=4±610 x1,2=0.4±0.6 x1=1 x2=0.2   Factored form of the equation:  5(x1)(x+0.2)=0  x1=1(x-2x)^2 + (2x-1)^2=2 \ \\ \ \\ (x-2x)^2 + (2x-1)^2=2 \ \\ \ \\ 5x^2 -4x -1=0 \ \\ \ \\ a=5; b=-4; c=-1 \ \\ D=b^2 - 4ac=4^2 - 4\cdot 5 \cdot (-1)=36 \ \\ D>0 \ \\ \ \\ x_{1,2}=\dfrac{ -b \pm \sqrt{ D } }{ 2a }=\dfrac{ 4 \pm \sqrt{ 36 } }{ 10 } \ \\ x_{1,2}=\dfrac{ 4 \pm 6 }{ 10 } \ \\ x_{1,2}=0.4 \pm 0.6 \ \\ x_{1}=1 \ \\ x_{2}=-0.2 \ \\ \ \\ \text{ Factored form of the equation: } \ \\ 5 (x -1) (x +0.2)=0 \ \\ \ \\ x_{1}=1
