Let x = distance between P and T
Points of 2x distance from T will be T - 2x and T + 2x. Thus, 2.

Thats 2.

P is the midpoint btw T and starting point of line L

so 2 (p--t) = distance between T and Starting point of L

so thus T is the midpoint of the line and have two possible points with that distance

well, an easy one. the point can be to the left of point P and to the right of point P. so we must have 2 numbers.
