Sketch the locus of z that satisfied by: arg(z-2/z-i)=pi/4. I break this down to: arg(z-2)-arg(z-i)=pi/4 My thought is to select three points and place them on the imaginary axis, then deduce the coordinate of z, three times, (ie start with z on the im axis, and we can show that coordinate of z is (0,2),then place z-2 on the im axis etc) Has anyone got an easier way to do this? I know the answer is a circle, but how can you tell? also, My the answer shows its just a major arc of a circle, but with no explanation as to why only part of the circle exists. if anyone can help deduce the equation and help with the above I would be appreciate it. Thanks in advance
