# Problem #1359

 1359 Two points $B$ and $C$ are in a plane. Let $S$ be the set of all points $A$ in the plane for which $\triangle ABC$ has area $1.$ Which of the following describes $S?$ $\textbf{(A) } \text{two parallel lines} \qquad\textbf{(B) } \text{a parabola} \qquad\textbf{(C) } \text{a circle} \qquad\textbf{(D) } \text{a line segment} \qquad\textbf{(E) } \text{two points}$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.

• Reduce fractions to lowest terms and enter in the form 7/9.
• Numbers involving pi should be written as 7pi or 7pi/3 as appropriate.
• Square roots should be written as sqrt(3), 5sqrt(5), sqrt(3)/2, or 7sqrt(2)/3 as appropriate.
• Exponents should be entered in the form 10^10.
• If the problem is multiple choice, enter the appropriate (capital) letter.
• Enter points with parentheses, like so: (4,5)
• Complex numbers should be entered in rectangular form unless otherwise specified, like so: 3+4i. If there is no real component, enter only the imaginary component (i.e. 2i, NOT 0+2i).
