In order to find when they are equidistant make the two equations from the parametric equation equal to each other.



Next solve for t:

-4+2t=1+4t
-4=1+2t
-5=2t
-5/2=t

t has now been found, so plug that number back in for both the x and y equation

x=-4+2(-5/2) use your calculator to find the exact number

x=-9

y=1+4(-5/2)

y=-9

In reality this point would not exist at all because it's negative from the starting point.
