**Equidistant** It is an adjective used to refer to something that is at the same distance between two points.

In areas like the** Math**the **Geometry**the **Analytic geometry** or the **Technical drawing**the **equidistance** It refers to that point, line, plane or solid that is at the same distance from another given point, line, plane or solid.

Likewise, we can say that a place is **equidistant** when we consider that it is halfway between two other reference points.

On the other hand, you can also use the word** equidistant** in a** figurative sense** to indicate that something is at the same distance from two things, or halfway between them, even if it refers to an abstract plane. For example: “It is an ideology of the center, equidistant from the radical ideas of the right and left.”

The word **equidistant** is derived from the verb **equidistance**composed of the suffix “equi-”, from Latin root *here-*meaning ‘equal’, and “distar”, from the Latin verb *distance*which translates ‘to be away’.

## Equidistant in Mathematics

In the field of **Math**as equidistant is designated the point that is located at the same distance from two points located at opposite ends.

Seen from the **Geometry**the equidistant point is the one from which a segment can be divided into two equal parts, since the perpendicular bisector line passes through this equidistant point or midpoint, which is the one that cuts the segment in half.

An elementary example of equidistance is that of a circle, where all its points are equidistant from the center of the circle.
