Exercise 15.2

Refer to page 9 for Exercise 15.2 in the PDF

1. Plot the following points on a graph sheet. Verify if they lie on a line

(a) \[A\left( {4,{\text{ }}0} \right),{\text{ }}B\left( {4,{\text{ }}2} \right),{\text{ }}C\left( {4,{\text{ }}6} \right),{\text{ }}D\left( {4,{\text{ }}2.5} \right)\]

Ans: To plot \[A\left( {4,{\text{ }}0} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 4 units to its right, then move 3 units up, you reach the point \[A\left( {4,{\text{ }}0} \right)\].

To plot \[B\left( {4,{\text{ }}2} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 4 units to its right, then move 2 units up, you reach the point \[B\left( {4,{\text{ }}2} \right)\].

To plot \[{\text{ }}C\left( {4,{\text{ }}6} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 4 units to its right, then move 6 units up, you reach the point \[{\text{ }}C\left( {4,{\text{ }}6} \right)\].

To plot \[D\left( {4,{\text{ }}2.5} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 4 units to its right, then move 2.5 units up, you reach the point \[D\left( {4,{\text{ }}2.5} \right)\].

Now join all these four points. The graph will look like:

In the graph , it is obvious that all four points lie on a line.

(b) \[P\left( {1,{\text{ }}1} \right),{\text{ }}Q\left( {2,{\text{ }}2} \right),{\text{ }}R\left( {3,{\text{ }}3} \right),{\text{ }}S\left( {4,{\text{ }}4} \right)\]

Ans: To plot \[P\left( {1,{\text{ }}1} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 1 unit to its right, then move 1 unit up, you reach the point \[P\left( {1,{\text{ }}1} \right)\].

To plot \[Q\left( {2,{\text{ }}2} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 2 units to its right, then move 2 units up, you reach the point \[Q\left( {2,{\text{ }}2} \right)\].

To plot \[R\left( {3,{\text{ }}3} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 3 units to its right, then move 3 units up, you reach the point \[R\left( {3,{\text{ }}3} \right)\].

To plot \[S\left( {4,{\text{ }}4} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 4 units to its right, then move 4 units up, you reach the point \[S\left( {4,{\text{ }}4} \right)\].

Now join all these four points. The graph will look like:

(Image Will Be Updated Soon)

In the graph , it is obvious that all four points lie on a line.

(c) \[K\left( {2,{\text{ }}3} \right),{\text{ }}L\left( {5,{\text{ }}3} \right),{\text{ }}M\left( {5,{\text{ }}5} \right),{\text{ }}N\left( {2,{\text{ }}5} \right)\]

Ans: To plot \[K\left( {2,{\text{ }}3} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 2 unit to its right, then move 3 unit up, you reach the point \[K\left( {2,{\text{ }}3} \right)\].

To plot \[L\left( {5,{\text{ }}3} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 5 units to its right, then move 3 units up, you reach the point \[L\left( {5,{\text{ }}3} \right)\]

To plot \[M\left( {5,{\text{ }}5} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 5 units to its right, then move 5 units up, you reach the point\[M\left( {5,{\text{ }}5} \right)\].

To plot \[N\left( {2,{\text{ }}5} \right)\] start at \[O(0,0)\] and then move 2 units to its right, then move 5 units up, you reach the point\[N\left( {2,{\text{ }}5} \right)\].

Now join all these four points. The graph will look like:

(Image Will Be Updated Soon)

Joining all four points gives a rectangle. Thus, all four points do not lie on a line.

2. Draw the line passing through (2, 3) and (3, 2). Find the coordinates of the points at which this line meets the x-axis and y-axis.

Ans: To plot \[\left( {2,{\text{ }}3} \right)\]start at \[O(0,0)\]and then move 2 units to its right, then move 3 units up, you reach the point\[\left( {2,{\text{ }}3} \right)\].

To plot \[(3,2)\] start at \[O(0,0)\]and then move 3 units to its right, then move 2 units up, you reach the point \[(3,2)\].

Now join both the points, you will get a line segment. Now extend  this line segment on both sides to get the line.

The graph will look like:

In the given graph, one can observe that Coordinates of the points where the  line meets x-axis is \[(5,0)\] and y-axis is \[(0,5)\].

3. Write the coordinates of the vertices of each of these adjoining figures:

(Image Will Be Updated Soon)

Let’s  consider the vertex O:

O is 0 units right to the origin and 0 units up from the origin. Thus, \[O(0,0)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex A:

A is 2 units right to the origin and 0 units up from the origin. Thus, \[A(2,0)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex B:

B is 2 units right to the origin and 3 units up from the origin. Thus, \[B(2,3)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex C:

C is 0 units right to the origin and 3 units up from the origin. Thus, \[C(0,3)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex P:

P is 4 units right to the origin and 3 units up from the origin. Thus, \[P(4,3)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex Q:

Q is 6 units right to the origin and 1 unit up from the origin. Thus, \[Q(6,1)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex R:

R is 6 units right to the origin and 5 units up from the origin. Thus, \[R(6,5)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex S:

S is 4 units right to the origin and 7 units up from the origin. Thus, \[S(4,7)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex K:

K is 10 units right to the origin and 5 units up from the origin. Thus, \[K(10,5)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex L:

L is 7 units right to the origin and 7 units up from the origin. Thus, \[L(7,7)\].

Let’s first consider the vertex M:

M is 10 units right to the origin and 8 units up from the origin. Thus, \[M(10,8)\].

Thus,

\[O{\text{ }}\left( {0,{\text{ }}0} \right),{\text{ }}A{\text{ }}\left( {2,{\text{ }}0} \right),{\text{ }}B{\text{ }}\left( {2,{\text{ }}3} \right),{\text{ }}C{\text{ }}\left( {0,{\text{ }}3} \right){\text{ }}P{\text{ }}\left( {4,{\text{ }}3} \right),{\text{ }}Q{\text{ }}\left( {6,{\text{ }}1} \right),{\text{ }}R{\text{ }}\left( {6,{\text{ }}5} \right),{\text{ }}S{\text{ }}\left( {4,{\text{ }}7} \right){\text{ }}K{\text{ }}\left( {10,{\text{ }}5} \right),{\text{ }}L{\text{ }}\left( {7,{\text{ }}7} \right),{\text{ }}M{\text{ }}\left( {10,{\text{ }}8} \right)\]

4. State whether True or False. Correct those are false. 

(i) A point whose x coordinate is zero and y-coordinate is non-zero will lie on the y-axis.

Ans: x coordinate is zero implies that the point lies 0 units right to the \[O(0,0)\] and y-axis is 0 units right to the \[O(0,0)\], i.e., a point with x coordinate 0 will always lie on the y-axis. Therefore, A point whose x coordinate is 0 and y coordinate is non-zero will lie on the y-axis.

Thus, the given statement is true.

(ii) A point whose y coordinate is zero and x-coordinate is 5 will lie on the y-axis.

Ans: y coordinate is zero implies that the point lies 0 units up from the \[O(0,0)\] and x-axis is 0 units up from the \[O(0,0)\], i.e., a point with y coordinate 0 will always lie on x-axis. Therefore, A point whose y coordinate is 0 and x coordinate is 5 will lie on the x-axis.

Thus, the given statement is false.

(iii) The coordinates of the origin are (0, 0).

Ans: The given statement is true.
