Hi Rahul,

You can calculate the coordinate of P by following the below approach :

let P be (h,k)

PA = root(h2 + (k - 1)2)

PB = root((h - 2)2  + k2)

let S = |PA-PB| = root(h2 + (k - 1)2)  -  root((h - 2)2  + k2)      ---- eqn (1)

Since P lies on given line therefore , 4h + 3k + 9 = 0

Put k from this eqn into eqn(1)

and differentiate S w.r.t to h

S will be maximum when dS/dh = 0 and d2S/dh2 < 0.

Thus u will get vaule of h.

Please feel free to ask as mnay questions you have.
