D. y = (-1/3)x would be, same slopes m = (-1/3) ```Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Which of the following lines is equidistant fro the points (3,8) and (9,6)? A)x=1/3 B)y=3 C)y=x/3 D)y=-x/3 E)y=3x+8 ------------- The line equidistant is the perpendicular bisector. The slope of the line thru the 2 points is -1/3, perpendicular lines have a slope of +3 ---------- Only E has a slope of 3 ======================== The point midway between the 2 points is (6,7) The line has a slope of 3 and passes thru (6,7) 7 = 3*6 + b b = -11 y = 3x - 11 is the equation of the line that is the locus of points equidistant from the 2 points. --> None of the choices ================================= This is poorly worded and subject to interpretation. Math problems should be explicit. The other tutor solved for a different meaning.
