#### What are compound locus problems? This is when two or possibly more locus conditions happening at the same time. The word AND or the word AND ALSO generally separate different conditions in these types of problems. Tricks to These Problems - Create each condition separately on the same diagram. It happens when two locus conditions are present in a problem. Calculate how many points are there where two loci conditions intersect after drawing two conditions separately. If you are working with doted lines, find the point where the dotted lines cross. You can follow these steps; Draw a diagram that displays the provided information in the problems. Determine every required condition by careful reading. Consider the probability of the words AND or AND ALSO separating the conditions. Place the initial locus condition. Consider one point that satisfies the required condition and place it on your diagram. When you don't see each locus theorems at work in the problem. Then, consider various additional points that satisfy the conditions and also place them. Place sufficient points for shape appearance and until you know what the locus theorem is required for the problem. Points on the dotted lines show the locus of the points. Repeat steps 2 and 4 for the second locus condition.

Compound locus problems involve at least two different locus conditions at the same time. The problems that are found on these worksheets give you three locations and you will need to find a specific value in between them. The problems require you to understand the importance of a circle's radius and perpendicular bisectors that affect the outcome of the other variables. Your students will use these activity sheets to learn how to calculate different values for graphs (lines, planes, etc.) which contain a compound locus. These worksheets explain how to work with a compound locus. Students will also write equations for a calculated locus.
