### Miscellaneous Exercise

1. Find the value of ${\text{k}}$ for which the line $(k - 3)x - \left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)y + {k^2} - 7k + 6 = 0$ is

(a) Parallel to $x$-axis

Ans: The given equation of line is $(k - 3)x - \left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)y + {k^2} - 7k + 6 = 0$

If the line is parallel to $x$-axis,

Slope of the line \[ = \] Slope of the $x$-axis

It can be written as,

$\left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)y = (k - 3)x + {k^2} - 7k + 6 = 0$

We get,

$y = \dfrac{{(k - 3)}}{{\left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)}}x + \dfrac{{{k^2} - 7k + 6}}{{\left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)}}$, Which is of the form $y = mx + c$

Here, the slope of the given line$ = \dfrac{{(k - 3)}}{{\left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)}}$

Consider the slope of $x$-axis $ = 0$

$\dfrac{{(k - 3)}}{{\left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)}} = 0$

$k - 3 = 0$

$k = 3$

Therefore, if the given line is parallel to the $x$-axis, then the value of $k$ is \[3\].

(b) Parallel to $y$-axis

Ans: The given equation of line is $(k - 3)x - \left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)y + {k^2} - 7k + 6 = 0$

Here if the line is parallel to the \[y\]-axis, it is vertical and the slope will be undefined.

So, the slope of the given line$ = \dfrac{{(k - 3)}}{{\left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)}}$

Here, $\dfrac{{(k - 3)}}{{\left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)}}$ is undefined at ${k^2} = 4$

${k^2} = 4$

$ \Rightarrow k = \pm 2$

Therefore, if the given line is parallel to the $y$-axis, then the value of $k$ is $ \pm 2$.

(c) Passing through the origin.

Ans: The given equation of line is $(k - 3)x - \left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)y + {k^2} - 7k + 6 = 0$

Here, if the line is passing through $(0,0)$ which is the origin satisfies the given equation

of line,

$(k - 3)(0) - \left( {4 - {k^2}} \right)(0) + {k^2} - 7k + 6 = 0$

${k^2} - 7k + 6 = 0$

Separate the terms,

${k^2} - 6k - k + 6 = 0$

$(k - 6)(k - 1) = 0$

$k = 1\,\,{\text{or }}\,{\text{6}}$

Therefore, if the given line is passing through the origin, then the value of $k$ is either

$1\,\,{\text{or }}\,{\text{6}}$.

2. Find the equation of the line, which cut-off intercepts on the axes whose sum and product are \[1\]and $ - 6$, respectively.

Ans: Consider, the intercepts cut by the given lines on the axes are \[a\]and \[b.\]

$a + b = 1 \to (1)$ (1)

$ab = - 6 \to (2)$

Solve both equations to get

$a = 3$ and $b = - 2$ or $a = - 2$ and $b = 3$

We know that the equation of the line whose intercepts on a and $b$ axes is

$\dfrac{x}{a} + \dfrac{y}{b} = 1$ or $bx + ay - ab = 0$

Case 1: $a = 3$ and $b = - 2$

Now, the equation of the line is $ - 2x + 3y + 6 = 0$

That is, $2x - 3y = 6$

Case 2: $a = - 2$ and $b = 3$

Now, the equation of the line is $3x - 2y + 6 = 0$

That is,$ - 3x + 2y = 6$

Therefore, the required equation of the lines are $2x - 3y = 6$ and $ - 3{\text{x}} + 2{\text{y}} = 6$.

3. What are the points on the $y$-axis whose distance from line $\dfrac{x}{3} + \dfrac{y}{4} = 1$ is \[4\] units.

Ans: Consider $(0,b)$ as the point on the $y$-axis whose distance from line $\dfrac{x}{3} + \dfrac{y}{4} = 1$ is 4 units.

It can be written as \[4x + 3y - 12 = 0 \to (1)\]

Compare equation \[\left( 1 \right)\] to the general equation of line $Ax + Bx + C = 0$, we get

$A = 4,\;\,B = 3$ and $C = - 12$

We know that the perpendicular distance \[\left( d \right)\] of a line $Ax + By + C = 0$ from $\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right)$ is,

$d = \dfrac{{\left| {A{x_1} + B{y_1} + C} \right|}}{{\sqrt {{A^2} + {B^2}} }}$

If $(0,b)$ is the point on the $y$-axis whose distance from line $\dfrac{x}{3} + \dfrac{y}{4} = 1$ is \[4\] units, then

$4 = \dfrac{{|4(0) + 3(b) - 12|}}{{\sqrt {{4^2} + {3^2}} }}$

$4 = \dfrac{{|3b - 12|}}{5}$

By cross multiplication,

$20 = |3b - 12|$

$20 = \pm (3b - 12)$

Here, $20 = (3b - 12)$ or $20 = - (3b - 12)$

It can be written as

$3b = 20 + 12$ or $3b = - 20 + 12$

Now we get,

$b = \dfrac{{32}}{3}$ or $b = \dfrac{{ - 8}}{3}$

Therefore, the required points are $b = \dfrac{{32}}{3}$ and $b = \dfrac{{ - 8}}{3}$.

4. Find the perpendicular distance from the origin to the line joining the points $(\cos \theta,\sin \theta )\operatorname{and} (\cos \phi,\sin \phi )$

Ans: The equation of the line joining the points $(\cos \theta ,\sin \theta )$ and $(\cos \phi ,\sin \phi )$ is,

$(\cos \theta ,\sin \theta )\operatorname{and} (\cos \phi ,\sin \phi )$

$y - \sin \theta = \dfrac{{\sin \phi - \sin \theta }}{{\cos \phi - \cos \theta }}(x - \cos \theta )$

By cross multiplication,

$y(\cos \phi - \cos \theta ) - \sin \theta (\cos \phi - \cos \theta ) = x(\sin \phi - \sin \theta ) - \cos \theta (\sin \phi - \sin \theta )$

$x(\sin \theta - \sin \phi ) + y(\cos \phi - \cos \theta ) + \cos \theta \sin \phi - \cos \theta \sin \theta - \sin \theta \cos \phi + \sin \theta \cos \theta = 0$

$x(\sin \theta - \sin \phi ) + y(\cos \phi - \cos \theta ) + \sin (\phi - \theta ) = 0$

$Ax + By + C = 0$, where $A = \sin \theta - \sin \phi ,B = \cos \phi - \cos \theta $, and $C = \sin (\phi - \theta )$

It is known that the perpendicular distance \[\left( d \right)\]of a line $Ax + By + C = 0$ from a point

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right)$ is,

$d = \dfrac{{\left| {A{x_1} + B{y_1} + C} \right|}}{{\sqrt {{A^2} + {B^2}} }}$

Thus, the perpendicular distance \[\left( d \right)\] of the given line from point $\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = (0,0)$ is,

$d = \dfrac{{|(\sin \theta - \sin \phi )(0) + (\cos \phi - \cos \theta )(0) + \sin (\phi - \theta )|}}{{\sqrt {{{(\sin \theta - \sin \phi )}^2} + {{(\cos \phi - \cos \theta )}^2}} }}$

$ = \dfrac{{|\sin (\phi - \theta )|}}{{\sqrt {{{\sin }^2}\theta + {{\sin }^2}\phi - 2\sin \theta \sin \phi + {{\cos }^2}\phi + {{\cos }^2}\theta - 2\cos \phi \cos \theta } }}$

Group the terms,

$ = \dfrac{{|\sin (\phi - \theta )|}}{{\sqrt {\left( {{{\sin }^2}\theta + {{\cos }^2}\theta } \right) + \left( {{{\sin }^2}\phi + {{\cos }^2}\phi } \right) - 2(\sin \theta \sin \phi + \cos \phi \cos \theta )} }}$

$ = \dfrac{{|\sin (\phi - \theta )|}}{{\sqrt {1 + 1 - 2(\cos (\phi - \theta ))} }}$

$ = \dfrac{{|\sin (\phi - \theta )|}}{{\sqrt {2(1 - \cos (\phi - \theta ))} }}$

$ = \dfrac{{|\sin (\phi - \theta )|}}{{\sqrt {2\left( {2{{\sin }^2}\left( {\dfrac{{\phi - \theta }}{2}} \right)} \right)} }}$

$ = \dfrac{{|\sin (\phi - \theta )|}}{{2\sin \left( {\dfrac{{\phi - \theta }}{2}} \right)}}$

Therefore, the perpendicular distance from the origin to the line joining the points

$(\cos \theta ,\sin \theta )\operatorname{and} (\cos \phi ,\sin \phi )$is $\dfrac{{|\sin (\phi - \theta )|}}{{2\sin \left( {\dfrac{{\phi - \theta }}{2}} \right)}}$.

5. Find the equation of the line parallel to $y$-axis and draw through the point of intersection of the lines $x - 7y + 5 = 0$ and $3x + y = 0$.

Ans: The equation of any line parallel to the \[y\]-axis is of the form $x = a \to (1)$

The two given lines are $x - 7y + 5 = 0 \to (2)$

$3x + y = 0 \to (3)$

Solve equation \[\left( 2 \right)\] and \[\left( 3 \right)\], we get $x = - \dfrac{5}{{22}}$ and $y = \dfrac{{15}}{{22}}$

Thus, $\left( { - \dfrac{5}{{22}},\dfrac{{15}}{{22}}} \right)$ is the point of intersection of lines $(2)$ and \[\left( 3 \right).\]

Since line $x = a$ passes through point $\left( { - \dfrac{5}{{22}},\dfrac{{15}}{{22}}} \right),\,\,$

$a = - \dfrac{5}{{22}}$

Therefore, the required equation of the line is $x = - \dfrac{5}{{22}}$.

6. Find the equation of a line drawn perpendicular to the line $\dfrac{x}{4} + \dfrac{y}{6} = 1$ through the point, where it meets the $y$-axis.

Ans: Here, the equation of the given line is $\dfrac{x}{4} + \dfrac{y}{6} = 1$

This equation can be written as $3x + 2y - 12 = 0$

Rewrite as,

$y = \dfrac{{ - 3}}{2}x + 6$, which is of the form $y = mx + c$

Now, Slope of the given line $ = \dfrac{{ - 3}}{2}$

$\therefore $ Slope of line perpendicular to the given line $ = - \dfrac{1}{{\left( { - \dfrac{3}{2}} \right)}} = \dfrac{2}{3}$

Let the given line intersect the \[y\]-axis at $(0,y)$.

Substitute $x$ with 0 in the equation of the given line,

$\dfrac{y}{6} = 1 \Rightarrow y = 6$

$\therefore $ The given line intersects the \[y\]-axis at $(0,6)$.

The equation of the line that has a slope of $\dfrac{2}{3}$ and passes through point $(0,6)$ is,$(y - 6) = \dfrac{2}{3}(x - 0)$

Cross-multiply and expand brackets,

$3y - 18 = 2x$

$2x - 3y + 18 = 0$

Therefore, the required equation of the line is $2x - 3y + 18 = 0$.

7. Find the area of the triangle formed by the line $y - x = 0,\,\,x + y = 0$ and $x - k = 0$.

Ans: It is given that,

$y - x = 0 \to (1)$

$x + y = 0 \to (2)$

$x - k = 0 \to (3)$

Here, the point of intersection of lines \[\left( 1 \right)\]and \[\left( 2 \right)\] is,

$x = 0$ and $y = 0$

The point of intersection of lines $(2)$ and \[\left( 3 \right)\] is,

$x = k$ and $y = - k$

The point of intersection of lines \[\left( 3 \right)\]and \[\left( 1 \right)\] is,

$x = k$ and $y = k$

Now, the vertices of the triangle formed by the three given lines are $(0,0),\,\,(k, - k)$ and

$(k,k)$.

Here the area of triangle whose vertices are $\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right),\,\,\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right)$ and $\left( {{x_3},{y_3}} \right)$ is,

$\dfrac{1}{2}\left| {{x_1}\left( {{y_2} - {y_3}} \right) + {x_2}\left( {{y_3} - {y_1}} \right) + {x_3}\left( {{y_1} - {y_2}} \right)} \right|$

So the area of the triangle formed by the three given lines,

$ = \dfrac{1}{2}|0( - k - k) + k(k - 0) + k(0 + k)|$ square units

$ = \dfrac{1}{2}\left| {{k^2} + {k^2}} \right|$square units

We get,

$ = \dfrac{1}{2}\left| {2{k^2}} \right|$

$ = {k^2}$ square units

Therefore, the area of the triangle formed by the line $y - x = 0,\,\,x + y = 0$ and $x - k = 0$ is

${k^2}$ square units.

8.Find the value of $p$ so that the three lines $3x + y - 2 = 0,\,\,px + 2y - 3 = 0$ and $2x - y - 3 = 0$ may intersect at one point.

Ans: It is given that,

$3x + y - 2 = 0 \to (1)$

$px + 2y - 3 = 0 \to (2)$

$2x - y - 3 = 0 \to (3)$

Solve equations \[\left( 1 \right)\] and \[\left( 3 \right)\] to get

$x = 1$ and $y = - 1$

Here, the three lines intersect at one point and the point of intersection of lines \[\left( 1 \right)\] and

\[\left( 3 \right)\]will also satisfy line \[\left( 2 \right)\]

$p(1) + 2( - 1) - 3 = 0$

$ \Rightarrow p - 2 - 3 = 0$

$ \Rightarrow p = 5$

Therefore, the value of $p$ is \[5\].

9. If three lines whose equations are $y = {m_1}x + {c_1},\,\,y = {m_2}x + {c_2}$, and $y = {m_2}x + {c_2}$ are concurrent, then show that ${m_1}\left( {{c_2} - {c_3}} \right) + {m_2}\left( {{c_3} - {c_1}} \right) + {m_3}\left( {{c_1} - {c_2}} \right) = 0$.

Ans: It is given that,

$y = {m_1}x + {c_1} \to (1)$

$y = {m_2}x + {c_2} \to (2)$

$y = {m_3}x + {c_3} \to (3)$

Subtract equation \[\left( 1 \right)\]from \[\left( 2 \right)\],

$0 = \left( {{m_2} - {m_1}} \right)x + \left( {{c_2} - {c_1}} \right)$

$ \Rightarrow \left( {{m_1} - {m_2}} \right)x = {c_2} - {c_1}$

$x = \dfrac{{{c_2} - {c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}}$

Substitute this value in equation \[\left( 1 \right)\]

$y = {m_1}\left( {\dfrac{{{c_2} - {c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}}} \right) + {c_1}$

Multiply the terms,

$y = \dfrac{{{m_1}{c_2} - {m_1}{c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}} + {c_1}$

Take LCM,

$y = \dfrac{{{m_1}{c_2} - {m_1}{c_1} + {m_1}{c_1} - {m_2}{c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}}$

$ \Rightarrow y = \dfrac{{{m_1}{c_2} - {m_2}{c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}}$

Here,

$\left( {\dfrac{{{c_2} - {c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}},\dfrac{{{m_1}{c_2} - {m_2}{c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}}} \right)$ is the point of intersection of lines $(1)$ and \[\left( 2 \right)\]

Lines \[\left( 1 \right),{\text{ }}\left( 2 \right)\]and \[\left( 3 \right)\] are concurrent. So the point of intersection of lines \[\left( 1 \right)\] and \[\left( 2 \right)\]

will satisfy equation \[\left( 3 \right)\].

$\dfrac{{{m_1}{c_2} - {m_2}{c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}} = {m_3}\left( {\dfrac{{{c_2} - {c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}}} \right) + {c_3}$

Multiply the terms and take LCM,

$\dfrac{{{m_1}{c_2} - {m_2}{c_1}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}} = \dfrac{{{m_3}{c_2} - {m_3}{c_1} + {c_3}{m_1} - {c_3}{m_2}}}{{{m_1} - {m_2}}}$

By cross multiplication,

${m_1}{c_2} - {m_2}{c_1} - {m_3}{c_2} + {m_3}{c_1} - {c_3}\;{m_1} + {c_3}\;{m_2} = 0$

Take out the common terms,

${m_1}\left( {{c_2} - {c_3}} \right) + {m_2}\left( {{c_3} - {c_1}} \right) + {m_3}\left( {{c_1} - {c_2}} \right) = 0$

Therefore, If three lines whose equations are $y = {m_1}x + {c_1},\,\,y = {m_2}x + {c_2}$, and $y = {m_2}x + {c_2}$

are concurrent, then ${m_1}\left( {{c_2} - {c_3}} \right) + {m_2}\left( {{c_3} - {c_1}} \right) + {m_3}\left( {{c_1} - {c_2}} \right) = 0$.

10. Find the equation of the line through the points $(3,2)$ which makes an angle of ${45^\circ }$ with the line $x - 2y = 3$

Ans: Let the slope of the required line be ${m_1}$.

The given line can be written as,

$y = \dfrac{1}{2}x - \dfrac{3}{2}$, which is of the form $y = mx + c$

Now, slope of the given line is

${m_2} = \dfrac{1}{2}$

It is given that the angle between the required line and line $x - 2y = 3$ is ${45^\circ }$.

If $\theta $ is the acute angle between lines ${l_1}$ and ${l_2}$ with slopes ${m_1}$ and ${m_2}$ respectively, then

$\tan \theta = \left| {\dfrac{{{m_2} - {m_1}}}{{1 + {m_1}{m_2}}}} \right|$

${\text{Now, }}\tan {45^\circ } = \dfrac{{\left| {{m_2} - {m_1}} \right|}}{{1 + {m_1}{m_2}}}$

Substitute the values,

$ \Rightarrow 1 = \left| {\dfrac{{\dfrac{1}{2} - {m_1}}}{{1 + \dfrac{{{m_1}}}{2}}}} \right|$

Take LCM,

$ \Rightarrow 1 = \left| {\dfrac{{\left( {\dfrac{{1 - 2{m_1}}}{2}} \right)}}{{\dfrac{{2 + {m_1}}}{2}}}} \right|$

$ \Rightarrow 1 = \left| {\dfrac{{1 - 2{m_1}}}{{2 + {m_1}}}} \right|$

$ \Rightarrow 1 = \pm \left( {\dfrac{{1 - 2{m_1}}}{{2 + {m_1}}}} \right)$

$ \Rightarrow 1 = \dfrac{{1 - 2{m_1}}}{{2 + {m_1}}}$ or $1 = - \left( {\dfrac{{1 - 2{m_1}}}{{2 + {m_1}}}} \right)$

$ \Rightarrow 2 + {m_1} = 1 - 2{m_1}$ or $2 + {m_1} = - 1 + 2{m_1}$

$ \Rightarrow {m_1} = - \dfrac{1}{3}$ or ${m_1} = 3$

Case 1: ${m_1} = 3$

The equation of the line passing through $(3,2)$ and having a slope of \[3\] is,

$y - 2 = 3(x - 3)$

Expand bracket,

$y - 2 = 3x - 9$

$3x - y = 7$

Case 2: ${m_1} = - \dfrac{1}{3}$

The equation of the line passing through $(3,2)$ and having a slope of $ - \dfrac{1}{3}$ is

$y - 2 = - \dfrac{1}{3}(x - 3)$

Cross multiply and expand bracket,

$3y - 6 = - x + 3$

$x + 3y = 9$

Therefore, the equations of the line are $3x - y = 7$ and $x + 3y = 9$.

11. Find the equation of the line passing through the point of intersection of the line $4x + 7y - 3$ $ = 0$ and $2x - 3y + 1 = 0$ that has equal intercepts on the axes.

Ans: Let the equation of the line having equal intercepts on the axes be $\dfrac{x}{a} + \dfrac{y}{a} = 1$

It can be written as,

$x + y = a \to {\text{(1)}}$

Solve equations $4x + 7y - 3 = 0$ and $2x - 3y + 1 = 0$, we get $x = \dfrac{1}{{13}}$ and $y = \dfrac{5}{{13}}$

$\therefore \left( {\dfrac{1}{{13}},\dfrac{5}{{13}}} \right)$ is the point of the intersection of the two given lines.

Since equation \[\left( 1 \right)\] passes through point $\left( {\dfrac{1}{{13}},\dfrac{5}{{13}}} \right)$, $\dfrac{1}{{13}} + \dfrac{5}{{13}} = a$

$ \Rightarrow a = \dfrac{6}{{13}}$

Thus, Equation \[\left( 1 \right)\] becomes $x + y = \dfrac{6}{{13}}$ that is, $13x + 13y = 6$

Therefore, the required equation of the line $13x + 13y = 16$.

12. Show that the equation of the line passing through the origin and making an angle $\theta $ with the line $y = mx + c$ is $\dfrac{y}{x} = \dfrac{{m \pm \tan \theta }}{{1 \mp m\tan \theta }}$

Ans: Let the equation of the line passing through the origin be ${\text{y}} = {m_1}x$.

If this line makes an angle of $\theta $ with line $y = mx + c$, then angle $\theta $ is,

$\tan \theta = \left| {\dfrac{{{m_1} - m}}{{1 + {m_1}m}}} \right|$

Substitute the values,

$ \Rightarrow \tan \theta = \left| {\dfrac{{\dfrac{y}{x} - m}}{{1 + \dfrac{y}{x}m}}} \right|$

$ \Rightarrow \tan \theta = \pm \left( {\dfrac{{\dfrac{y}{x} - m}}{{1 + \dfrac{y}{x}m}}} \right)$

$ \Rightarrow \tan \theta = \dfrac{{\dfrac{y}{x} - m}}{{1 + \dfrac{y}{x}m}}$ or $\tan \theta = - \left( {\dfrac{{\dfrac{y}{x} - m}}{{1 + \dfrac{y}{x}m}}} \right)$

Case 1: $\tan \theta = \dfrac{{\dfrac{y}{x} - m}}{{1 + \dfrac{y}{x}m}}$

$ \Rightarrow \tan \theta + \dfrac{y}{x}m\tan \theta = \dfrac{y}{x} - m$

$ \Rightarrow m + \tan \theta = \dfrac{y}{x}(1 - m\tan \theta )$

$ \Rightarrow \dfrac{y}{x} = \dfrac{{m + \tan \theta }}{{1 - m\tan \theta }}$

Case 2: $\tan \theta = - \left( {\dfrac{{\dfrac{x}{y} - m}}{{1 + \dfrac{y}{x}m}}} \right)$

$\tan \theta = - \left( {\dfrac{{\dfrac{y}{x} - m}}{{1 + \dfrac{y}{x}m}}} \right)$

$ \Rightarrow \tan \theta + \dfrac{y}{x}m\tan \theta = - \dfrac{y}{x} + m$

$ \Rightarrow \dfrac{y}{x}(1 + m\tan \theta ) = m - \tan \theta $

Rewrite as,

$ \Rightarrow \dfrac{y}{x} = \dfrac{{m - \tan \theta }}{{1 + m\tan \theta }}$

Hence, it is shown that the equation of the line passing through the origin and making an angle $\theta $with the line $y = mx + c$, is $\dfrac{y}{x} = \dfrac{{m \pm \tan \theta }}{{1 \mp m\tan \theta }}$.

13. In what ratio, the line joining $( - 1,1)$ and $(5,7)$ is divisible by the line $x + y = 4$ ?

Ans: The equation of the line joining the points $( - 1,1)$ and $(5,7)$ is,

$y - 1 = \dfrac{{7 - 1}}{{5 + 1}}(x + 1)$

$y - 1 = \dfrac{6}{6}(x + 1)$

$x - y + 2 = 0 \to (1)$

The equation of the given line is $x + y - 4 = 0 \to (2)$.

The points of intersection of line \[\left( 1 \right)\] and \[\left( 2 \right)\] is $x = 1$ and $y = 3$.

Let point $(1,3)$ divide the line segment joining $( - 1,1)$ and $(5,7)$ in the ratio $1:k$.

Then, by section formula,

$(1,3) = \left( {\dfrac{{k( - 1) + 1(5)}}{{1 + k}},\dfrac{{k(1) + 1(7)}}{{1 + k}}} \right)$

Simplify,

$ \Rightarrow (1,3) = \left( {\dfrac{{ - k + 5}}{{1 + k}},\dfrac{{k + 7}}{{1 + k}}} \right)$

$ \Rightarrow \dfrac{{ - k + 5}}{{1 + k}} = 1,\,\,\dfrac{{k + 7}}{{1 + k}} = 3$

$\therefore \dfrac{{ - k + 5}}{{1 + k}} = 1$

By cross multiplication,

$ \Rightarrow - k + 5 = 1 + k$

$ \Rightarrow 2k = 4$

$k=2$

Therefore, the line joining the points $( - 1,1)$ and $(5,7)$ is divided by line $x + y = 4$ in the ratio \[1:2\].

14. Find the distance of the line $4x + 7y + 5 = 0$ from the point $(1,2)$ along the line $2x - y = 0$

Ans: The given lines are $2x - y = 0 \to (1)$

$4x + 7y + 5 = 0 \to (2)$

${\text{P}}(1,2)$ is a point on line\[\left( 1 \right)\].

Let ${\text{Q}}$ be the point intersection of line \[\left( 1 \right)\] and \[\left( 2 \right).\]

Solve equations \[\left( 1 \right)\] and \[\left( 2 \right)\] to get $x = \dfrac{{ - 5}}{{18}}$ and $y = \dfrac{{ - 5}}{9}$

Now, Coordinates of point $B$ are $\left( {\dfrac{{ - 5}}{{18}},\dfrac{{ - 5}}{9}} \right)$.

Use distance formula to obtain the distance between points ${\text{P and Q}}$,

${\text{PQ}} = \sqrt {{{\left( {1 + \dfrac{5}{{18}}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {2 + \dfrac{5}{9}} \right)}^2}} $ units

Take LCM,

$ = \sqrt {{{\left( {\dfrac{{23}}{{18}}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {\dfrac{{23}}{9}} \right)}^2}} $ units

Rewrite as,

$ = \sqrt {{{\left( {\dfrac{{23}}{{2 \times 9}}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {\dfrac{{23}}{9}} \right)}^2}} $ units

$ = \sqrt {{{\left( {\dfrac{{23}}{9}} \right)}^2}{{\left( {\dfrac{1}{2}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {\dfrac{{23}}{9}} \right)}^2}} $ units

$ = \sqrt {{{\left( {\dfrac{{23}}{9}} \right)}^2} + \left( {\dfrac{1}{4} + 1} \right)} $ units

$ = \dfrac{{23}}{9}\sqrt {\dfrac{5}{4}} $ units

$ = \dfrac{{23}}{9} \times \dfrac{{\sqrt 5 }}{2}$ units

$ = \dfrac{{23\sqrt 5 }}{{18}}$ units

Therefore, the required distance is $\dfrac{{23\sqrt 5 }}{{18}}$ units.

15. Find the direction in which a straight line must be drawn through the points $( - 1,2)$ so that its point of intersection with line $x + y = 4$ may be at a distance of \[3\] units from this point.

Ans: Consider $y = mx + c$ as the line passing through the point $( - 1,2)$.

Then,

$2 = m( - 1) + c$

$ \Rightarrow 2 = - m + c$

$ \Rightarrow c = m + 2$

Substitute the value of $c$,

$y = mx + m + 2 \to (1)$

Now, the given line is,

$x + y = 4 \to (2)$

Solve both equations,

$x = \dfrac{{2 - m}}{{m + 1}}$ and $y = \dfrac{{5m + 2}}{{m + 1}}$

$\left( {\dfrac{{2 - m}}{{m + 1}},\,\,\dfrac{{5m + 2}}{{m + 1}}} \right)$ is the point of intersection of lines $(1)$ and \[\left( 2 \right)\].

Given that, the point is at a distance of \[3\] units from $( - 1,2)$

By distance formula,

$\sqrt {{{\left( {\dfrac{{2 - m}}{{m + 1}} + 1} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {\dfrac{{5m + 2}}{{m + 1}} - 2} \right)}^2}} = 3$

Square both sides,

${\left( {\dfrac{{2 - m + m + 1}}{{m + 1}}} \right)^2} + {\left( {\dfrac{{5m + 2 - 2m - 2}}{{m + 1}}} \right)^2} = {3^2}$

$ \Rightarrow \dfrac{9}{{{{(m + 1)}^2}}} + \dfrac{{9{m^2}}}{{{{(m + 1)}^2}}} = 9$

Divide the equation by \[9\],

$\dfrac{{1 + {m^2}}}{{{{(m + 1)}^2}}} = 1$

By cross multiplication,

$1 + {m^2} = {m^2} + 1 + 2m$

$ \Rightarrow 2\;m = 0$

$ \Rightarrow m = 0$

Therefore, the slope of the required line must be zero that is, the line must be parallel

to the $x$-axis.

16. The hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle has its ends at the points $(1,3)$ and $( - 4,1)$. Find the equation of the legs (perpendicular sides) of the triangle which are parallel to the axes.

Ans: Consider ${\text{PQR}}$ as the right angles triangle where $\angle {\text{R}} = {90^\circ }$

Here, infinity such lines are present.

$m$ is the slope of ${\text{PR}}$

Then, the slope of ${\text{QR}} = \dfrac{{ - 1}}{m}$

Equation of ${\text{PR}}$is,

$y - 3 = m(x - 1)$

By cross multiplication,

$x - 1 = \dfrac{1}{{m(y - 3)}}$

Equation of ${\text{QR}}$is,

$y - 1 = \dfrac{{ - 1}}{{m(x + 4)}}$

By cross multiplication

$x + 4 = - m(y - 1)$

If $m = 0$,

$y - 3 = 0,\,\,x + 4 = 0$

If $m = \infty $,

$x - 1 = 0,\,\,y - 1 = 0$

That is, $x = 1,\,\,y = 1$

Therefore, the equation of the legs (perpendicular sides) of the triangle is $x = 1,\,\,y = 1$.

17. Find the image of the point $(3,8)$ with respect to the line $x + 3y = 7$ assuming the line to be a plane mirror.

Ans: Given that,

$x + 3y = 7 \to (1)$

Consider \[{\text{B}}\left( {a,{\text{ }}b} \right)\]as the image of point ${\text{A}}(3,8)$

So line \[\left( 1 \right)\]is perpendicular bisector of ${\text{AB}}$.

Slope of ${\text{AB}} = \dfrac{{b - 8}}{{a - 3}}$

Slope of line $(1) = - \dfrac{1}{3}$

Line \[\left( 1 \right)\] is perpendicular to ${\text{AB}}$

Then,

$\left( {\dfrac{{b - 8}}{{a - 3}}} \right) \times \left( { - \dfrac{1}{3}} \right) = - 1$

$ \Rightarrow \dfrac{{b - 8}}{{3a - 9}} = 1$

By cross multiplication,

$b - 8 = 3a - 9$

$3a - b = 1 \to (2)$

We know,

Mid-point of ${\text{AB}} = \left( {\dfrac{{a + 3}}{2},\,\,\dfrac{{b + 8}}{2}} \right)$

So the mid-point of line segment ${\text{AB}}$ will satisfy line \[\left( 1 \right)\].

From equation \[\left( 1 \right)\],

$\left( {\dfrac{{a + 3}}{2}} \right) + 3\left( {\dfrac{{b + 8}}{2}} \right) = 7$

By further calculation,

$a + 3 + 3\;b + 24 = 14$

On further simplification,

$a + 3b = - 13 \to (3)$

Solve equations \[\left( 2 \right)\] and \[\left( 3 \right)\],

$a = - 1$ and $b = - 4$

Therefore, the image of the given point for the given line is $( - 1, - 4)$.

18. If the lines $y = 3x + 1$ and $2y = x + 3$ are equally indicated to the line $y = mx + 4$, find the value of $m$.

Ans: The equation of the given lines are ${\text{y}} = 3{\text{x}} + 1$

$2y = x + 3 \to (2)$

\[y = mx + 4 \to (3)\]

Slope of line\[\left( 1 \right)\] is ${m_1} = 3$

Slope of line $(2)\,\,{\text{is}}\,\,{m_2} = \dfrac{1}{2}$

Slope of line $(3)\,\,{\text{is}}\,\,{m_3} = m$

We know that the lines \[\left( 1 \right)\] and \[\left( 2 \right)\] are equally inclined to line \[\left( 3 \right)\] which means that the angle between lines \[\left( 1 \right)\] and \[\left( 3 \right)\]equals the angle between lines $(2)$ and \[\left( 3 \right)\].

$\left| {\dfrac{{{m_1} - {m_3}}}{{1 + {m_1}{m_3}}}} \right| = \left| {\dfrac{{{m_2} - {m_3}}}{{1 + {m_2}{m_3}}}} \right|$

Substitute the values,

$\left| {\dfrac{{3 - m}}{{1 + 3m}}} \right| = \left| {\dfrac{{\dfrac{1}{2} - m}}{{1 + \dfrac{1}{2}m}}} \right|$

Take LCM

$\left| {\dfrac{{3 - m}}{{1 + 3m}}} \right| = \left| {\dfrac{{1 - 2m}}{{m + 2}}} \right|$

It can be written as,

$\dfrac{{3 - m}}{{1 + 3m}} = \pm \left( {\dfrac{{1 - 2m}}{{m + 2}}} \right)$

Here,

$\dfrac{{3 - m}}{{1 + 3m}} = \dfrac{{1 - 2m}}{{m + 2}}$ or $\dfrac{{3 - m}}{{1 + 3m}} = - \left( {\dfrac{{1 - 2m}}{{m + 2}}} \right)$

If $\dfrac{{3 - m}}{{1 + 3m}} = \dfrac{{1 - 2m}}{{m + 2}}$

By cross multiplication,

$(3 - m)(m + 2) = (1 - 2\;m)(1 + 3\;m)$

$ \Rightarrow - {m^2} + m + 6 = 1 + m - 6{m^2}$

$ \Rightarrow 5{m^2} + 5 = 0$

Divide the equation by $5$

$ \Rightarrow {m^2} + 1 = 0$

$ \Rightarrow m = \sqrt { - 1} $, which is not real.

Therefore, this case is not possible.

If $\dfrac{{3 - m}}{{1 + 3m}} = - \left( {\dfrac{{1 - 2m}}{{m + 2}}} \right)$

By cross multiplication,

$(3 - m)(m + 2) = - (1 - 2\;m)(1 + 3\;m)$

$ \Rightarrow - {m^2} + m + 6 = - \left( {1 + m - 6\;{m^2}} \right)$

$ \Rightarrow 7{m^2} - 2m - 7 = 0$

Here we get,

$m = \dfrac{{2 \pm \sqrt {4 - 4(7)( - 7)} }}{{2(7)}}$

$m = \dfrac{{2 \pm 2\sqrt {1 + 49} }}{{14}}$

Rewrite as,

$m = \dfrac{{1 \pm 5\sqrt 2 }}{7}$

Thus, the required value of $m$ is $\dfrac{{1 \pm 5\sqrt 2 }}{7}$.

19. If the sum of the perpendicular distance of a variable point ${\text{P}}(x,y)$ from the lines $x + y - 5 = 0$ and $3x - 2y + 7 = 0$ is always \[10.\] Show that ${\text{P}}$ must move on a line.

Ans: Given that,

$x + y - 5 = 0 \to (1)$

$3x - 2y + 7 = 0 \to (2)$

Here the perpendicular distances of ${\text{P}}(x,y)$ from lines \[\left( 1 \right){\text{ and }}\left( 2 \right)\]are written as,

${d_1} = \dfrac{{|x + y - 5|}}{{\sqrt {{{(1)}^2} + {{(1)}^2}} }}$ and ${d_2} = \dfrac{{|3x - 2y + 7|}}{{\sqrt {{{(3)}^2} + {{( - 2)}^2}} }}$

Now, ${d_1} = \dfrac{{|x + y - 5|}}{{\sqrt 2 }}$ and ${d_2} = \dfrac{{|3x - 2y + 7|}}{{\sqrt {13} }}$

We know that ${d_1} + {d_2} = 10$

Substitute the values,

$\dfrac{{|x + y - 5|}}{{\sqrt 2 }} + \dfrac{{|3x - 2y + 7|}}{{\sqrt {13} }} = 10$

$ \Rightarrow \sqrt {13} |x + y - 5| + \sqrt 2 |3x - 2y + 7| - 10\sqrt {26} = 0$

It can be written as,

$\sqrt {13} (x + y - 5) + \sqrt 2 (3x - 2y + 7) - 10\sqrt {26} = 0$

Assume $(x + y - 5)$ and $(3x - 2y + 7)$ are positive,

$\sqrt {13} x + \sqrt {13} y - 5\sqrt {13} + 3\sqrt 2 x - 2\sqrt 2 y + 7\sqrt 2 - 10\sqrt {26} = 0$

Take out the common terms,

$x(\sqrt {13} + 3\sqrt 2 ) + y(\sqrt {13} - 2\sqrt 2 ) + (7\sqrt 2 - 5\sqrt {13} - 10\sqrt {26} ) = 0$, which is the equation of a line.

Similarly, we can find the equation of the line for any signs of $(x + y - 5)$ and

$(3x - 2y + 7)$.

Therefore, point ${\text{P}}$ must move on a line.

20. Find the equation of the line which is equidistant from parallel lines $9x + 6y - 7 = 0$ and $3x + 2{\text{y}} + 6 = 0.$

Ans: The equation of the given lines are $9x + 6y - 7 = 0 \to (1)$

$3x + 2y + 6 = 0 \to (2)$

Consider ${\text{P}}(h,k)$ be the arbitrary point that is equidistant from lines \[\left( 1 \right){\text{ and }}\left( 2 \right)\].

Here, the perpendicular distance of ${\text{P}}(h,k)$ from line $(1)$ is,

${d_1} = \dfrac{{|9h + 6k - 7|}}{{{{(9)}^2} + {{(6)}^2}}} $

$= \dfrac{{|9h + 6k - 7|}}{{\sqrt {117} }} $

$= \dfrac{{|9h + 6k - 7|}}{{3\sqrt {13} }} $

Similarly, the perpendicular distance of ${\text{P}}(h,k)$ from line \[\left( 2 \right)\] is,

${d_2} = \dfrac{{|3h + 2k + 6|}}{{\sqrt {{{(3)}^2} + {{(2)}^2}} }} $

$= \dfrac{{|3h + 2k + 6|}}{{\sqrt {13} }} $

We know that ${\text{P}}(h,k)$ is equidistant from lines \[(1){\text{ and }}\left( 2 \right)\]

That is, ${d_1} = {d_2}$

Substitute the values,

$\dfrac{{|9h + 6k - 7|}}{{3\sqrt {13} }} = \dfrac{{|3h + 2k + 6|}}{{\sqrt {13} }}$

$ \Rightarrow |9h + 6k - 7| = 3|3h + 2k + 6|$

$ \Rightarrow |9h + 6k - 7| = \pm 3(3h + 2k + 6)$

Now, $9h + 6k - 7 = 3(3h + 2k + 6)$ or $9h + 6k - 7 = - 3(3h + 2k + 6)$

$ \Rightarrow 9h + 6k - 7 = 3(3h + 2k + 6)$ is not possible as,

$9h + 6k - 7 = 3(3h + 2k + 6)$

$ - 7 = 18$ ,which is wrong

We have,

$9h + 6k - 7 = - 3(3h + 2k + 6)$

By multiplication

$9h + 6k - 7 = - 9h - 6k - 18$

$ \Rightarrow 18h + 12k + 11 = 0$

Therefore, the required equation of the line is $18x + 12y + 11 = 0$.

21. A ray of light passing through the point $(1,2)$ reflects on the $x$-axis at point ${\text{A}}$ and the reflected ray passes through the point $(5,3)$. Find the coordinates of ${\text{A}}$.

Ans:

Consider the coordinates of point ${\text{A}}$ as $(a,0)$

Construct a line \[\left( {{\text{AL}}} \right)\]which is perpendicular to the $x$-axis

Here, the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection.

That is,

$\angle {\text{BAL}} = \angle {\text{CAL}} = \emptyset $

$\angle {\text{CAX}}$ $ = \theta $

It can be written as,

$\angle {\text{OAB}} = {180^\circ } - (\theta + 2\phi ) = {180^\circ } - \left[ {\theta + 2\left( {{{90}^\circ } - \theta } \right)} \right]$

$ = {180^\circ } - \theta - {180^\circ } + 2\theta $

$ = \theta $

Now, $\angle {\text{BAX}} = {180^\circ } - \theta $

Slope of line ${\text{AC}} = \dfrac{{3 - 0}}{{5 - a}}$

$\tan \theta = \dfrac{3}{{5 - a}} \to (1)$

Slope of line ${\text{AB}} = \dfrac{{2 - 0}}{{1 - a}}$

$\tan \left( {{{180}^\circ } - \theta } \right) = \dfrac{2}{{1 - a}}$

$ \Rightarrow - \tan \theta = \dfrac{2}{{1 - a}}$

$ \Rightarrow \tan \theta = \dfrac{2}{{a - 1}}$

From equations \[\left( 1 \right){\text{ and }}\left( 2 \right)\],

$\dfrac{3}{{5 - a}} = \dfrac{2}{{a - 1}}$

By cross multiplication,

$3a - 3 = 10 - 2a$

$ \Rightarrow a = \dfrac{{13}}{5}$

Therefore, the coordinates of point ${\text{A}}$ are $\left( {\dfrac{{13}}{5},0} \right)$.

22. Prove that the product of the lengths of the perpendiculars drawn from the points $\left( {\sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} ,0} \right)$ and $\left( { - \sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}},0} \right)$ to the line $\dfrac{x}{a}\cos \theta + \dfrac{y}{b}\sin \theta = 1$ is ${b^2}$.

Ans: Given that,

$\dfrac{x}{a}\cos \theta + \dfrac{y}{b}\sin \theta = 1$

Rewrite as,

$bx\cos \theta + ay\sin \theta - ab = 0 \to (1)$

Here, the length of the perpendicular from point $\left( {\sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} ,0} \right)$ to line \[\left( 1 \right)\] is,

${p_1} = \dfrac{{\left| {b\cos \theta \left( {\sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} } \right) + a\sin \theta (0) - ab} \right|}}{{\sqrt {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } }} $

$= \dfrac{{\left| {b\cos \theta \sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} - ab} \right|}}{{\sqrt {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } }} $

Similarly, the length of the perpendicular from point $\left( { - \sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} ,0} \right)$ to line $(2)$ is,

${p_2} = \dfrac{{\left| {b\cos \theta \left( { - \sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} } \right) + a\sin \theta (0) - ab} \right|}}{{\sqrt {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } }} $

$= \dfrac{{\left| {b\cos \theta \sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} + ab} \right|}}{{\sqrt {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } }} $

Multiply equations \[\left( {\text{2}} \right){\text{ and }}\left( {\text{3}} \right),\]

$ = \dfrac{{\left| {\left( {b\cos \theta \sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} - ab} \right)\left( {b\cos \theta \sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} + ab} \right)} \right|}}{{\left( {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } \right)}}$

From the formula,

$ = \dfrac{{\left| {{{\left( {b\cos \theta \sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} } \right)}^2} - {{(ab)}^2}} \right|}}{{\left( {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } \right)}}$

Square the numerator,

$ = \dfrac{{\left| {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta \left( {{a^2} - {b^2}} \right) - {a^2}{b^2}} \right|}}{{\left( {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } \right)}}$

Expand using the formula,

$ = \dfrac{{\left| {{a^2}{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta - {b^4}{{\cos }^2}\theta - {a^2}{b^2}} \right|}}{{{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta }}$

Take out the common terms,

$ = \dfrac{{{b^2}\left| {{a^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta - {b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta - {a^2}} \right|}}{{{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta }}$

$ = \dfrac{{{b^2}\left| {{a^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta - {b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta - {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta - {a^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta } \right|}}{{{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta }}$

Here, ${\sin ^2}\theta + {\cos ^2}\theta = 1$ (trigonometric identity)

$ = \dfrac{{{b^2}\left| { - \left( {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } \right)} \right|}}{{{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta }}$

$ = \dfrac{{{b^2}\left( {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } \right)}}{{\left( {{b^2}{{\cos }^2}\theta + {a^2}{{\sin }^2}\theta } \right)}}$

Cancel common terms,

$ = {b^2}$

Hence, proved that the product of the lengths of the perpendiculars drawn from the points $\left( {\sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}},0} \right)$ and $\left( { - \sqrt {{a^2} - {b^2}} ,0} \right)$ to the line $\dfrac{x}{a}\cos \theta + \dfrac{y}{b}\sin \theta = 1$ is ${b^2}$.

23. A person standing at the junction (crossing) of two straight paths represented by the equation $2x - 3y + 4 = 0$ and $3x + 4y - 5 = 0$ wants to reach the path whose equation is $6x - 7y + 8 = 0$in the last time. Find the equation of the path that he should follow.

Ans: Given that,

$2x - 3y + 4 = 0 \to (1)$

$3x + 4y - 5 = 0 \to (2)$

$6x - 7y + 8 = 0 \to (3)$

Here, the person is standing at the junction of the paths represented by lines

\[\left( {\text{1}} \right){\text{ and }}\left( {\text{2}} \right){\text{.}}\]

Solve equations \[\left( {\text{1}} \right){\text{ and }}\left( {\text{2}} \right),\]

$x = \dfrac{{ - 1}}{{17}}$ and $y = \dfrac{{22}}{{17}}$

Thus, the person is standing at point $\left( {\dfrac{{ - 1}}{{17}},\dfrac{{22}}{{17}}} \right)$.

It is known that the person can reach path \[\left( 3 \right)\]in the least time if he walks along the perpendicular line to (3) from point $\left( {\dfrac{{ - 1}}{{17}},\dfrac{{22}}{{17}}} \right)$

Here, the slope of the line $(3) = \dfrac{6}{7}$

Now, the slope of the line perpendicular to line $(3) = \dfrac{1}{{\left( {\dfrac{6}{7}} \right)}} = \dfrac{{ - 7}}{6}$

So the equation of line passing through point $\left( {\dfrac{{ - 1}}{{17}},\dfrac{{22}}{{17}}} \right)$and having a slope of $\dfrac{{ - 7}}{6}$ is,

$\left( {y - \dfrac{{22}}{{17}}} \right) = - \dfrac{7}{6}\left( {x + \dfrac{1}{{17}}} \right)$

$ \Rightarrow 6(17y - 22) = - 7(17x + 1)$

By multiplication,

$102y - 132 = - 119x - 7$

$ \Rightarrow 119x + 102y = 125$

Therefore, the path that the person should follow is $119x + 102y = 125$.
