let P is (x,0) then

slope of AP = 2/x-2

slope of PB = 5/-2-x

if lines are perpendicular then product of slopes = -1

(2/x-2) (-5/x+2) = -1

x2 - 4 = 10

x2 = 14

x = +root14 & -root14

points are , (root14,0)  &  (-root14,0)

The points are A(2,2) and B(5,-2)

It is given that the point P is in the x-axis therefore lets assume it to be P(x,0)

 

it is also given that AP is perpendicular to BP

therefore if M1   is the slope of AP and M2    is the slope of BP then we know that

               M1 x  M2  = -1

therefore (2-0)/2-x)*(-2-0)/5-x)=-1

you will get a quadratic equation x2-7x+6=0 

 

solving you will get x=1 or x=6

so the point required is P(1,0) or P(6,0)
