EXERCISE 7.1

1. The distance of point $P(2,3)$ from the $x - axis $ is

(A) $2$

(B) $3$

(C) $1$

(D) $5$

Correct Answer: B.

Ans: The perpendicular distance of the point $P(2,3)$ from the $x - {\text{axis}}$ will be equal to the $y$ coordinate. So, the distance of the point $P(2,3)$ from the $x - {\text{axis}}$ is $3$ units.


Hence, the distance of the point $P(2,3)$ from the $x - {\text{axis}}$ is $3$ units.

2. The distance between the points $A(0,6)$ and $B(0, - 2)$ is 

(A) $6$

(B) $8$

(C) $4$

(D) $2$

Correct answer: B.

Ans: $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ are two points respectively, the distance between them is given as:

$AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$

Given points are $A(0,6)$ and $B(0, - 2)$. 

$AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$

$AB = \sqrt {{{(0 - 0)}^2} + {{( - 2 - 6)}^2}}$

$AB = 8$

Hence, the distance between the points $A(0,6)$ and $B(0, - 2)$ is $8.$


3. The distance of point $P(- 6,8)$ from the origin is 

(A) $8$

(B) $2\sqrt 7$

(C) $10$

(D) $6$

Correct answer: C.

Ans: The distance between any two points $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ is given by $AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$.

Given points are $O(0,0)$ and $P( - 6,8)$. 

$OP = \sqrt {{{( - 6 - 0)}^2} + {{(8 - 0)}^2}}$ 

$OP = \sqrt {100}$

$OP = 10$

Therefore, the distance of $P( - 6,8)$ from origin is $10$.


4. The distance between the points $(0,5)$ and $( - 5,0)$ is 

(A) $5$

(B) $5\sqrt 2$

(C) $2\sqrt 5$

(D) $10$

Correct answer: B.

Ans: Distance between two points $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ are as follows:

$AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$

Given points are $(0,5)$ and $( - 5,0)$.

$AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$

$AB = \sqrt {{{( - 5 - 0)}^2} + {{(0 - 5)}^2}}$

$AB = \sqrt {50}$

$AB = 5\sqrt 2$

Hence, the distance between $(0,5)$ and $( - 5,0)$ is $5\sqrt 2$.


5. $AOBC$ is a rectangle whose three vertices are vertices $ A(0,3), O(0,0)$  and $B(5,0).$ The length of its diagonal is

The distance between any two points $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ is given by $AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$

Given points are $ A(0,3), O(0,0)$  and $B(5,0).$

$AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$

$AB = \sqrt {{{(5 - 0)}^2} + {{(0 - 3)}^2}}$

$AB = \sqrt {34}$

Hence, the length of its diagonal is $\sqrt {34}$.


Question 6: The perimeter of a triangle with vertices $ (0,4), (0,0)$  and $(3,0)$ is

(A) $5$

(B) $12$

(C) $11$

(D) $7 + \sqrt 5$

Correct answer: B.

Ans: Perimeter of triangle $\Delta ABC = AB + BC + AC$.

$(0,4), (0,0)$ and $C(3,0)$ are the three vertices of $\Delta ABC.$

Two points $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ are at distance as below

$AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$

$\Rightarrow AB = \sqrt {{{(0 - 0)}^2} + {{(0 - 4)}^2}}$

$\Rightarrow AB = 4$

$\Rightarrow AC = \sqrt {{{(3 - 0)}^2} + {{(0 - 4)}^2}}$

$\Rightarrow AC = 5$

$\Rightarrow BC = \sqrt {{{(3 - 0)}^2} + {{(0 - 0)}^2}}$

$\Rightarrow BC = 3$

Perimeter of $\Delta ABC = 4 + 5 + 3$ 

Perimeter of $\Delta ABC = 12 cm$ 

Hence, the perimeter of a triangle with vertices $ (0,4), (0,0)$  and $(3,0)$ is $12cm$.


7. The area of a triangle with vertices $A(3,0), B(7,0)$  and $C(8,4)$ is

(A) $14$

(B) $28$

(C) $8$

(D) $6$

Correct answer: C.

Ans: $ A(3,0), B(7,0)$ and $C(8,4)$ are the three vertices of $\Delta ABC.$

Area of triangle $\Delta ABC = \dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {{x_1}\left( {{y_2} - {y_3}} \right) + {x_2}\left( {{y_3} - {y_1}} \right) + {x_3}\left( {{y_1} - {y_2}} \right)} \right]$

Area of triangle $\Delta ABC = \dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {3\left( {0 - 4} \right) + 7\left( {4 - 0} \right) + 8\left( {0 - 0} \right)} \right]$

$\Delta ABC = 8 sq.units$

Hence, the area of a triangle with vertices $A(3,0), B(7,0)$ and $C(8,4)$ is $8 sq.units$.


8. The points $(- 4,0), (4,0), (0,3)$ are the vertices of a

(A) Right triangle 

(B) Isosceles triangle

(C) Equilateral triangle

(D) Scalene triangle

Correct answer: B.

Ans: Two points $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ are at a distance, which is derived as follows:

$AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$

$\Rightarrow AB = \sqrt {{{(4 + 4)}^2} + {{(0 - 0)}^2}}$

$\Rightarrow AB = 8$

$\Rightarrow AC = \sqrt {{{(0 + 4)}^2} + {{(3 - 0)}^2}}$ 

$\Rightarrow AC = 5$

$\Rightarrow BC = \sqrt {{{(0 - 4)}^2} + {{(3 - 0)}^2}}$ 

$\Rightarrow BC = 5$

$AC = BC = 5 cm\: and\: AB = 8 cm{\text{.}}$

Hence, the points $ ( - 4,0), (4,0), (0,3)$ are the vertices of an isosceles triangle.


9. The point which divides the line segment joining the points $(7, - 6)$ and $(3,4)$ in ratio $1:2$ internally lies in the

(A) I quadrant

(B) II quadrant

(C) III quadrant

(D) IV quadrant

Correct answer: D.

Ans: As  $x = \dfrac{{{m_1}{x_2} + {m_2}{x_1}}}{{{m_1} + {m_2}}}$ and $y = \dfrac{{{m_1}{y_2} + {m_2}{y_1}}}{{{m_1} + {m_2}}}$

Here,  ${m_1} = 1, {m_2} = 2$.

$\Rightarrow (x,y) = \left( {\dfrac{{1(3) + 2(7)}}{{1 + 2}},\dfrac{{1(4) + 2( - 6)}}{{1 + 2}}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow (x,y) = \left( {\dfrac{{17}}{3},\dfrac{{ - 8}}{3}} \right)$

Hence, we can conclude by saying that the line segment is divided by the line joining $(7, - 6)$ and $(3,4)$ in ratio $1:2$ internally lies in IV quadrant.

10. The point which lies on the perpendicular bisector of the line segment joining the points  $A( -2, -5)$ and $B(2,5)$ is

(A) $(0, 0)$

(B) $(0, 2)$

(C) $(2, 0)$

(D) $( - 2, 0)$

Correct answer: A.

Ans: Through the midpoint of $AB$, the perpendicular bisector of AB passes.

The midpoint of the line joining $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ is given by $\left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$.

Mid-point $= \left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$

Mid-point $= \left( {\dfrac{{ - 2 + 2}}{2},\dfrac{{ - 5 + 5}}{2}} \right)$ 

Mid-point $= \left( {0, 0} \right)$

Hence, the point lying on the perpendicular bisector of the line segment joining the points  $A(- 2, - 5)$ and $B(2, 5)$ is $\left( {0, 0} \right)$.


11. The fourth vertex $D$ of a parallelogram $ABCD$ whose three vertices are $A( - 2, 3), B(6, 7)$ and $C(8, 3)$ is

(A) $(0, 1)$

(B) $(0, - 1)$

(C) $( - 1, 0)$

(D) $(1, 0)$

Correct answer: B.

Ans:

Note that the diagonals $AC$ and $BD$ of parallelogram $ABCD$ bisect each other. So, the midpoint of $AC$ is equal to the midpoint of $BD$.

The midpoint of $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ is given by $\left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$.

$\Rightarrow \left( {\dfrac{{ - 2 + 8}}{2},\dfrac{{3 + 3}}{2}} \right) = \left( {\dfrac{{{x_4} + 6}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_4} + 7}}{2}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \left( {3,3} \right) = \left( {\dfrac{{{x_4} + 6}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_4} + 7}}{2}} \right)$

Now, compare both sides:

$\dfrac{{{x_4} + 6}}{2} = 3$ and $\dfrac{{{y_4} + 7}}{2} = 3$

${x_4} = 0$ and ${y_4} =  - 1$

$({x_4},{y_4}) = (0, - 1)$

Hence, the fourth vertex $D$ of a parallelogram $ABCD$ is $(0, - 1)$.


12. If the point $P(2, 1)$ lies on the line segment joining points $A(4, 2)$ and $B(8, 4)$ then

(A) $AP = \dfrac{1}{3}AB$

(B) $AP = PB$

(C) $PB = \dfrac{1}{3}AB$

(D) $AP = \dfrac{1}{2}AB$

Correct answer: D.

Ans: 

Let  ${m_1} = k,{m_2} = 1$.

 As $x = \dfrac{{{m_1}{x_2} + {m_2}{x_1}}}{{{m_1} + {m_2}}}$ and $y = \dfrac{{{m_1}{y_2} + {m_2}{y_1}}}{{{m_1} + {m_2}}}$ ,

$\Rightarrow 2 = \dfrac{{k(8) + 1(4)}}{{k + 1}}$ and $1 = \dfrac{{k(4) + 1(2)}}{{k + 1}}$

$\Rightarrow 8k + 4 = 2k + 2$ and $4k + 2 = k + 1$

$\Rightarrow k = \dfrac{{ - 1}}{3}$ and $k = \dfrac{{ - 1}}{3}$

So, $\dfrac{{AP}}{{PB}} = \dfrac{{ - 1}}{3}$

$\Rightarrow AP =  - 1$, which means $1$ part outside $AB.$

And $PB = 3$

$\Rightarrow AP = 1x$ unit and $AB = 3x - 1x = 2x$ units.

So, $AP = \dfrac{1}{2}AB$.

Hence, $AP = \dfrac{1}{2}AB$.


13. If $P\left( {\dfrac{a}{3},4} \right)$ is the midpoint of the line segment joining the points $Q(- 6, 5)$ and $R(- 2, 3)$ then the value of $a$ is

(A) $- 4$

(B) $- 12$

(C) $12$

(D) $- 6$

Correct answer: B.

Ans:  $P({x_1},{y_1})$ and $Q({x_2},{y_2})$ equation’s midpoint is given by $\left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$.

$\Rightarrow \left( {\dfrac{a}{3},4} \right) = \left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \left( {\dfrac{a}{3},4} \right) = \left( {\dfrac{{ - 6 - 2}}{2},\dfrac{{5 + 3}}{2}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{a}{3} = \dfrac{{ - 8}}{2}$

$\Rightarrow a =  - 12$

Hence, $a =  - 12$.


14. The perpendicular bisector of the line segment joining the points $A(1, 5)$ and $B(4, 6)$ cuts the y-axis at

(A) $(0, 13)$

(B) $(0, - 13)$

(C) $(0, 12)$

(D) $(13, 0)$

Correct answer: A.

Ans: The point where the perpendicular bisector of the line segment joining $A(1, 5)$ and $B(4, 6)$ cuts the y-axis $P(0, y).$

$AP = BP$

$\Rightarrow A{P^2} = B{P^2}$

$\Rightarrow 1 + {(y - 5)^2} = 16 + {(y - 6)^2}$

$\Rightarrow 1 + {y^2} - 10y + 25 = 16 + {y^2} - 12y + 36$

$\Rightarrow y = 13$

So, the point $P(0, y) = (0, 13)$.


15. The coordinates of the point which is equidistant from the three vertices of the $\Delta AOB$ as shown in the Fig. 7.1 is

(A) $(x,y)$

(B) $(y,x)$

(C) $\left( {\dfrac{x}{2},\dfrac{y}{2}} \right)$

(D) $\left( {\dfrac{y}{2},\dfrac{x}{2}} \right)$

Correct answer:  A.

Ans: In any right-angled triangle, the mid-point of the hypotenuse will be equidistant from all the three vertices of the triangle.

The midpoint of $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ is given by $\left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$.

Midpoint of $A(0,2y)$ and $B(2x,0)$ is $\left( {\dfrac{{2x + 0}}{2},\dfrac{{0 + 2y}}{2}} \right) = (x, y)$.

Hence, the coordinates of the point which is equidistant from the three vertices of the $\Delta AOB$ is $(x, y)$.


16. A circle drawn with origin as the center passes through $\left( {\dfrac{{13}}{2},0} \right).$ The point which does not lie in the interior of the circle is

(A) $\left( {\dfrac{{ - 3}}{4},1} \right)$

(B) $\left( {2,\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)$

(C) $\left( {5,\dfrac{{ - 1}}{2}} \right)$

(D) $\left( { - 6,\dfrac{5}{2}} \right)$

Correct answer: D.

Ans: The distance between any two points $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ is given by $AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$ .

The radius of the circle is $\sqrt {{{\left( {\dfrac{{13}}{2} - 0} \right)}^2} + {{(0 - 0)}^2}}  = 6.5$ units.

Consider the point given in option A,

The distance of $\left( {\dfrac{{ - 3}}{4},1} \right)$ from origin is $\sqrt {{{\left( {\dfrac{{ - 3}}{4} - 0} \right)}^2} + {{(1 - 0)}^2}}  = 1.25$ units.

As the distance $1.25 < 6.5$, the point $\left( {\dfrac{{ - 3}}{4},1} \right)$ lies  in the interior of the given circle.

Consider the point given in option B.

The distance of $\left( {2,\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)$from origin is $\sqrt {{{\left( {2 - 0} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {\dfrac{7}{3} - 0} \right)}^2}}  = 3.0731$ units.

As the distance $3.0731 < 6.5$, the point $\left( {2,\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)$ lies  in the interior of the given circle.

Consider the point given in option C,

The distance of $\left( {5,\dfrac{{ - 1}}{2}} \right)$ from origin is $\sqrt {{{(5 - 0)}^2} + {{\left( { - \dfrac{1}{2} - 0} \right)}^2}}  = 5.0249$units.

As the distance $5.0249 < 6.5$ , the point $\left( {5,\dfrac{{ - 1}}{2}} \right)$ lies  in the interior of the given circle.

Consider the point given in option D,

The distance of $\left( { - 6,\dfrac{5}{2}} \right)$ from origin is $\sqrt {{{( - 6 - 0)}^2} + {{\left( {\dfrac{5}{2} - 0} \right)}^2}}  = 6.5$ units.

As the distance $6.5 = 6.5$, the point $\left( { - 6,\dfrac{5}{2}} \right)$ lies  on the given circle.

Hence, the point which does not lie in the interior of the circle is $\left( { - 6,\dfrac{5}{2}} \right)$.


17. A line intersects the y-axis and x-axis at the points $P$ and $Q$ respectively. If $(2, - 5)$ is the midpoint of $PQ$ then the coordinates of $P$ and $Q$ are, respectively

(A) $(0, - 5)$ and $(2,0)$

(B) $(0,10)$ and $( - 4,0)$

(C) $(0,4)$ and $( - 10,0)$

(D) $(0, - 10)$ and $(4,0)$

Correct answer: D.

Ans: As $P$ lies  on y-axis, the coordinates of $P$ will be $(0, y).$ 

As $Q$ lies on x-axis, the coordinates of $Q$ will be $(x, 0).$ 

The midpoint of $P({x_1},{y_1})$ and $Q({x_2},{y_2})$ is given by $\left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$.

$\Rightarrow \left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right) = (2, - 5)$

$\Rightarrow \left( {\dfrac{{0 + x}}{2},\dfrac{{y + 0}}{2}} \right) = (2, - 5)$

$\Rightarrow x = 4 and y =  - 10$

Hence, the coordinates of $P$ and $Q$ are $(0, - 10)$ and $(4,0)$.


18. The area of a triangle with vertices (a,b + c), (b,c + a) and (c,a + b) is

(A) ${(a + b + c)^2}$

(B) 0

(C) a + b + c

(D) abc

Correct Answer: B

Ans: That area of triangle $\Delta ABC = \dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {{x_1}\left( {{y_2} - {y_3}} \right) + {x_2}\left( {{y_3} - {y_1}} \right) + {x_3}\left( {{y_1} - {y_2}} \right)} \right]$.

Vertices are (a,b + c), (b,c + a) and (c,a + b).

Area = $\dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {a\{ c + a - \left( {a + b} \right)\}  + b\{ a + b - (b + c)\}  + c\{ b + c - (c + a)\} } \right]$

Area = $\dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {a\left( {c - b} \right) + b(a - c) + c(b - a)} \right]$

Area = $\dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {ac - ab + ab - bc + bc - ac} \right]$

Area = 0

Hence, Area of triangle = 0.


19. If the distance between the points $(4,p)$ and $(1,0)$ is $5$  then the value of $p$ is

(A) $4$ only

(B) $ \pm 4$

(C) $ - 4$ only

(D) $0$

Correct answer:  B.

Ans: The distance between any two points $A({x_1},{y_1})$ and $B({x_2},{y_2})$ is given by $AB = \sqrt {{{({x_2} - {x_1})}^2} + {{({y_2} - {y_1})}^2}}$ .

Given $AB = 5$units

$\Rightarrow {\left( {AB} \right)^2} = {\left( 5 \right)^2}$

$\Rightarrow {(4 - 1)^2} + {(p - 0)^2} = 25$

$\Rightarrow 9 + {(p)^2} = 25$

$\Rightarrow {(p)^2} = 16$

$\Rightarrow p =  \pm 4$

Hence, $p =  \pm 4.$


20. If the points $A(1,2), O(0,0)$ and $C(a,b)$ are collinear, then

(A) $a = b$

(B) $a = 2b$

(C) $2a = b$

(D) $a =  - b$

Correct answer: C.

Ans: Area of triangle $\Delta ABC = \dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {{x_1}\left( {{y_2} - {y_3}} \right) + {x_2}\left( {{y_3} - {y_1}} \right) + {x_3}\left( {{y_1} - {y_2}} \right)} \right]$.

Area of a triangle is zero if the points are collinear.

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {{x_1}\left( {{y_2} - {y_3}} \right) + {x_2}\left( {{y_3} - {y_1}} \right) + {x_3}\left( {{y_1} - {y_2}} \right)} \right] = 0$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {1\left( {0 - b} \right) + 0\left( {b - 2} \right) + a\left( {2 - 0} \right)} \right] = 0$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{2}( - b + 2a) = 0$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{2}( - b + 2a) = 0$

$\Rightarrow 2a = b$

Hence, $2a = b.$


EXERCISE 7.2
1. $\Delta ABC$ With vertices $A( - 2, 0), B(2, 0)$ and $C(0, 2)$ is similar to $\Delta DEF$ with vertices $D (- 4, 0),E(4,0)$ and $F$ $(0, 4)$

Ans: The statement is False.

Distance Formula $= \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$ 

In $\Delta ABC$ , $AB = \sqrt {{{(2 + 2)}^2} + {{(0 - 0)}^2}}  = \sqrt {{{(4)}^2}}  = 4$

$AC = \sqrt {{{(0 + 2)}^2} + {{(2 - 0)}^2}}  = \sqrt {(4 + 4)}  = 2\sqrt 2$

in $\Delta DEF$ , $DE = \sqrt {{{(4 + 4)}^2} + {{(0 - 0)}^2}}  = \sqrt {{{(8)}^2}}  = 8$

$EF = \sqrt {{{(0 - 4)}^2} + {{(4 - 0)}^2}}  = \sqrt {16 + 16}  = \sqrt {32}  = 4\sqrt 2$

$DF = \sqrt {{{(0 + 4)}^2} + {{(4 - 0)}^2}}  = \sqrt {16 + 16}  = 4\sqrt 2$

Here, $\dfrac{{AB}}{{DE}}  =  \dfrac{{BC}}{{EF}}  =  \dfrac{{AC}}{{DF}}$

$\dfrac{4}{8} = \dfrac{{2\sqrt 2 }}{{4\sqrt 2 }} = \dfrac{1}{2}$

Hence, $\Delta ABC$ is similar to $\Delta DEF$.


2. Point $P( - 4,2)$ lies on the line segment joining the points $A( - 4,6)$ and $B( - 4, - 6)$

Ans: The statement is True
The given points $A( - 4, 6)$ and $B( - 4, - 6)$

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = ( - 4, 6)$ 

$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = ( - 4, - 6)$ 

$\left( {{x_3},{y_3}} \right) = ( - 4, 2)$ 

Point $P( - 4, 2)$ lie on line AB if the area of triangle $ABP = 0$

$\dfrac{1}{2}[ - 4( - 6 - 2) - 4(2 - 6) - 4(6 + 6)]$ 

$\dfrac{1}{2}[ - 4( - 8) - 4( - 4) - 4(12)]$

$[32 + 16 - 48]$
$= 0$

$\therefore P( - 4, 2)$ Must lie on line joining, $AB$ 


3. The points $(0, 5), (0, - 9)$ and $(3, 6)$ are collinear.

Ans: The statement is False
The given points area $(0, 5),(0, - 9)$ and $(3, 6)$

If the point area is collinear then the area of triangle is 0.

${x_1} = 0, {x_2} = 0, {x_3} = 3$

${y_1} = 5, {y_2} = 9, {y_3} = 6$

$= \dfrac{1}{2} [0 ( - 9 - 6) + 0 (6 - 5) + 3 (5 + 9)]$

$= \dfrac{1}{2}[0 + 0 + 42]$

$= \dfrac{{42}}{2} = 21$

Area of triangle $= 21$

Here the area of the triangle is not equal to zero.

Hence, the point is not collinear.


4. Point $ P\left( {0, 2} \right)$  is the point of intersection of y–axis and perpendicular bisector of line segment joining the points $A ( - 1, 1)$ and $B (3, 3)$

Ans: The statement is False.

If the point ${\text{P}}$ is a perpendicular bisector of the line joining the point $A( - 1, 1)$ and $B(3, 3)$ then it must be mid-point of $AB$.

Mid - point of $AB = \left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = ( - 1, 1)$

$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (3, 3)$ 

It does not represent point P

Hence, the given statement is false.


5. Points $A \left( {3, 1} \right), B \left( {12, -2} \right) and C \left( {0, 2} \right)$ cannot be the vertices of a triangle.

Ans: The statement is True
If they are not the vertices of a triangle then

Area of $\Delta ABC = 0$

${x_1} = 3, {x_2} = 12, {x_3} = 0$

${y_1} = 1, {y_2} =  - 2, {y_3} = 2$

Let us find the area of $\Delta ABC$

$= \dfrac{1}{2}[3( - 2 - 2) + 12(2 - 1) + 0(1 + 2)]$

$= \dfrac{1}{2}[3( - 4) + 12(1) + 0]$

$= \dfrac{1}{2}[ - 12 + 12]$

$= \dfrac{0}{2}$

$= 0$

Area of $\Delta ABC = 0$

Hence, they are collinear or not the vertices of a triangle.


6. Points $A \left( {4, 3} \right), B \left( {6, 4} \right), C \left( {5, --6} \right) and D \left( {--3, 5} \right)$ are the vertices of a parallelogram.
Ans: The statement is False
The given points area $A(4,3),B(6,4),C(5, - 6),D( - 3,5)$
Distance between $AB = \sqrt {{{(6 - 4)}^2} + {{(4 - 3)}^2}}$
$AB = \sqrt {{{(2)}^2} + {{(1)}^2}}  = \sqrt 5$

Distance between $BC = \sqrt {{{(5 - 6)}^2} + {{( - 6 - 4)}^2}}$
$BC = \sqrt {1 + 100}  = \sqrt {101}$

Distance between $CD = \sqrt {{{( - 3 - 5)}^2} + {{(5 + 6)}^2}}$

$CD = \sqrt {64 + 121}  = \sqrt {185}$

Distance between $DA = \sqrt {{{(4 + 3)}^2} + {{(3 - 5)}^2}}$

$DA = \sqrt {49 + 4}  = \sqrt {53}$

Here, opposite sides are not equal i.e.

$AB \ne CD,BC \ne DA$

Hence, it is not a parallelogram


7. A circle has its Centre at the origin and a point $P\left( {5, 0} \right)$  lies on it. The point $Q\left( {6, 8} \right)$  lies outside the circle.

Ans: The statement is True.
The center of the circle is $O(0,0)$

If point $P(5,0)$ lies on the circle then the distance between $O(0, 0)$ and $P(5, 0)$ is the radius of the circle $OP = \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$

$OP = \sqrt {{{(5 - 0)}^2} + {{(0 - 0)}^2}}$

$OP = \sqrt {{{(5)}^2}}  = 5$

$OP = 5$

Radius of circle $= 5$

If point $Q(6, 8)$ is outside the circle then the distance between $O (0,0)$ and $Q (6,8)$ is greater than the Radius of the circle

  $\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = (0, 0)$

  $\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (6, 8)$ 

$OQ = \sqrt {{{(6 - 0)}^2} + {{(8 - 0)}^2}}$ 

$OQ = \sqrt {36 + 64}$ 

$= \sqrt {100}  = 10$

Here point $OQ$ is greater than the radius of circle.

Hence, point $Q(6, 8)$ lies outside the circle.


8. The point $A(2, 7)$ lies on the perpendicular bisector of line segment joining the points $P(6, 5)$ and $Q(0, - 4)$

Ans: The statement is False.
If point $A(2, 7)$ is bisector then it must be mid-point of the line joining the points $P(6, 5)$ and $Q(0, - 4)$

Mid - point of $PQ = \left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$

  $\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = (6,5)$

  $\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (0, - 4)$ 

$= \left( {\dfrac{{6 + 0}}{2},\dfrac{{5 - 4}}{2}} \right) = \left( {3,\dfrac{1}{2}} \right)$

Hence, A does not lies on bisector.

9. Point $C \left( {5, -3} \right)$  is one of the two points of trisection of the line segment joining the points $A \left( {7, - 2} \right)$ and B $\left( {1, - 5} \right)$

Ans: The statement is True

seo images


Let the two point of trisection are C, D

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = (7, - 2)$

$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (1, - 5)$

${m_1} = 1,{m_2} = 2$  $\because$ C divide in ratio 1:2

$C = \left( {\dfrac{{1  \times  1  +  2  \times  7}}{{1 +  2}},\dfrac{{1  \times  \left( { - 5} \right) +  2  \times  \left( { - 2} \right)}}{{1 + 2}}} \right)$

$C = \left( {\dfrac{{1 + 14}}{3},\dfrac{{ - 5 - 4}}{3}} \right)$

$C = (5, - 3)$

${n_1} = 2,{n_2} = 1$ $\because$ C divide in ratio 2:1

$D = \left( {\dfrac{{2 \times 1 + 1 \times 7}}{{2 + 1}},\dfrac{{2 \times \left( { - 5} \right) + 1 \times \left( { - 2} \right)}}{{2 + 1}}} \right)$

$D = \left( {\dfrac{{2 + 7}}{3},\dfrac{{ - 10 - 2}}{3}} \right)$

$D = (3, - 4)$

Hence, the given statement is true.


10. Points $A( - 6,10), B ( - 4,6)$ and $C (3, - 8)$ are collinear such that $AB = \dfrac{2}{9}AC$
Ans: The statement is True.

If the points $A( - 6,10), B( - 4,6)$ and $C(3, - 8)$ are collinear then area of $\Delta ABC = 0$ $= \dfrac{1}{2}[ - 84 + 72 + 12]$

Area of $\Delta ABC = 0$

Hence, ${\text{A}},{\text{B}}$ and ${\text{C}}$ are collinear

Distance between $AB = \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$ 

$AB = \sqrt {{{( - 4 + 6)}^2} + {{(6 - 10)}^2}}$ 

$AB = \sqrt {4 + 16}  = \sqrt {20}  = 2\sqrt 5$

Distance between $AC = \sqrt {{{(3 + 6)}^2} + {{( - 8 - 10)}^2}}$ 

$= \sqrt {81 + 324}$ 

$= \sqrt {405}$ 

$AC = 9\sqrt 5$

Hence, $\dfrac{{AB}}{{AC}} = \dfrac{{2\sqrt 5 }}{{9\sqrt 5 }}$

$AB = \dfrac{2}{9}AC$

11. The point $P( - 2, 4)$ lies  on a circle of radius $6$  and Centre $C(3, 5)$

Ans: The statement is False
The radius of the circle is $6$  and Centre $C (3, 5)$

If point $P (- 2,4)$ lies on the circle then the distance between the Centre and point $P$ is equal to the radius of the circle.
Distance between $PC = \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$ 

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = ( - 2,4)$
$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (3,5)$

$PC = \sqrt {{{(3 + 2)}^2} + {{(5 - 4)}^2}}$ 

$PC = \sqrt {25 + 1}  = \sqrt {26}$ 

$PC \ne radius (6)$

Hence, point $P ( - 2, 4)$ not lies on the circle with Centre$C (3, 5)$.

12. The points A(- 1, - 2),B(4, 3),C(2, 5)$  and D( - 3, 0) in that order form a rectangle.

Ans: The statement is True
The given points are A( - 1, - 2),B(4,3),C(2,5)  and D( - 3,0)
Length of $AB = \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$ 

$AB = \sqrt {{{(4 + 1)}^2} + {{(3 + 2)}^2}}$ 

$AB = \sqrt {50}  = 5\sqrt 2$

Length of $BC = \sqrt {{{(2 - 4)}^2} + {{(5 - 3)}^2}}$ 

$BC = \sqrt {4 + 4}  = \sqrt 8  = 2\sqrt 2$

Length of $CD = \sqrt {{{( - 3 - 2)}^2} + {{(0 - 5)}^2}}$ 

$CD = \sqrt {25 + 25}  = \sqrt {50}  = 5\sqrt 2$

$DA = \sqrt {4 + 4}  = \sqrt 8  = 2\sqrt 2$

$AB = CD,BC = DA$

Length of $AC = \sqrt {{{(2 + 1)}^2} + {{(5 + 2)}^2}}$ 

$AC = \sqrt {9 + 49}  = \sqrt {58}$ 

Length of $BD = \sqrt {{{( - 3 - 4)}^2} + {{(0 - 3)}^2}}$ 

$BD = \sqrt {49 + 9}  = \sqrt {58}$ 

$AC = BD$ (Diagonals)

Hence, $ABCD$ is a rectangle as

$AB = CD,BC = DA,AC = BD$


EXERCISE 7.3

1. Name the type of triangle formed by the points $A( - 5,6),B( - 4, - 2),C(7,5)$

Ans: ${\text{ABC}}$ is a scalene triangle.
Given vertices are $A( - 5, 6), B( - 4, - 2), C(7, 5)$

Distance formula $= \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$ 

Distance of $AB = \sqrt {{{( - 4 - ( - 5))}^2} + {{( - 2 - 6)}^2}}$ 

$= \sqrt {{{(1)}^2} + {{( - 8)}^2}}$ 

$= \sqrt {1 + 64}$ 

$= \sqrt {65}$ 

$= \sqrt {{{(11)}^2} + {{(7)}^2}}$ 

$= \sqrt {121 + 49}$ 

$= \sqrt {170}$ 

Distance of $AC = \sqrt {{{(7 - ( - 5))}^2} + {{(5 - 6)}^2}}$ 

$= \sqrt {{{(12)}^2} + {{( - 1)}^2}}$ 

$= \sqrt {144 + 1}$ 

$= \sqrt {145}$ 

$AB \ne BC \ne AC$

Therefore, $ABC$ is a scalene triangle.


2. Find the points on the x-axis which are at a distance of $2\sqrt 5$ from the point $ (7, - 4)$. How many such points are there
Ans: Point are $(9, 0)$ and $(5, 0)$
Let point on $x$-axis is $(x, 0)$    $\left[ {\because {\text{ }}y is zero on - axis} \right]$

Given point $(7, - 4)$

Distance $= 2\sqrt 5$

$2\sqrt 5  = \sqrt {{{(7 - x)}^2} + {{( - 4, - 0)}^2}}$ 

Squaring both sides

${(2\sqrt 5 )^2} = {(7 - x)^2} + {( - 4)^2}$
$20 = 49 + {x^2} - 14x + 16$
${x^2} - 14x + 65 - 20 = 0$
${x^2} - 14x + 45 = 0$
${x^2} - 9x - 5x + 45 = 0$
$x(x - 9) - 5(x - 9) = 0$
$(x - 9)(x - 5) = 0$
$x = 9, x = 5$

Point are $(9,0)$ and $(5,0)$
Hence, two points are there.


3. What type of a quadrilateral do the points $A(2, - 2), B(7,3), C(11, - 1), D(6, - 6)$ taken in that order, form?

Ans: Rectangle
Let the points be $A(2, - 2), B(7,3), C(11, - 1), D(6, - 6)$ of a quadrilateral $ABCD$

$AB = \sqrt {{{(7 - 2)}^2} + {{(3 + 2)}^2}}  = \sqrt {{5^2} + {5^2}}  = \sqrt {25 + 25}  = \sqrt {50}$ 

$BC = \sqrt {{{(7 - 11)}^2} + {{( - 1 - 3)}^2}}  = \sqrt {{{(4)}^2} + {{( - 4)}^2}}  = \sqrt {16 + 16}  = \sqrt {32}$ 

$CD = \sqrt {{{(6 - 11)}^2} + {{( - 6 + 1)}^2}}  = \sqrt {{{( - 5)}^2} + {{( - 5)}^2}}  = \sqrt {25 + 25}  = \sqrt {50}$ 

$DA = \sqrt {{{(6 - 2)}^2} + {{( - 6 + 2)}^2}}  = \sqrt {{{(4)}^2} + {{( - 4)}^2}}  = \sqrt {16 + 16}  = \sqrt {32}$ 

$AC = \sqrt {{{(11 - 2)}^2} + {{( - 1 + 2)}^2}}  = \sqrt {{{(9)}^2} + {{(1)}^2}}  = \sqrt {81 + 1}  = \sqrt {82}$ 

$BD = \sqrt {{{(6 - 7)}^2} + {{( - 6 - 3)}^2}}  = \sqrt {{{(1)}^2} + {{( - 9)}^2}}  = \sqrt {1 + 81}  = \sqrt {82}$ 

$AS, AB = CD$ and $BC = DA$ and $AC = BD$

Hence, the quadrilateral is a rectangle.


4. Find the value of a, if the distance between the points $A( - 3, - 14)$ and $B(a, - 5)$ is $9 units$ 

Ans: $- 3$
Here, points are $A( - 3, - 14)$ and $B(a, - 5)$

Distance $= 9$

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = ( - 3, - 14)$

$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (a, - 5)$ 

$9 = \sqrt {{{(a + 3)}^2} + {{( - 5 + 14)}^2}}$ 

Squaring both sides we get

${(9)^2} = {(a + 3)^2} + {(9)^2}$

${(a + 3)^2} = 0$

$\Rightarrow a + 3 = 0$

$a =  - 3$

Value of a is $- 3$ 


5. Find a point which is equidistant from the points $A( - 5, 4)$ and $B( - 1, 6)$? How many such points are there?

Ans: Infinite numbers of points are there
Let ${\text{P }}(x, y)$ is a point which is equidistant from point $A( - 5, 4)$ and $B( - 1, 6)$ i.e. $PA = PB$

Squaring both sides we get

$P{A^2} = P{B^2}$

${( - 5 - x)^2} + {(4 - y)^2} = {( - 1 - x)^2} + {(6 - y)^2}$

$25 + {x^2} + 10x + 16 + {y^2} - 8y = 1 + {x^2} + 2x + 36 + {y^2} - 12y$

$\left[ {Using:{{(a + b)}^2} = {a^2} + {b^2} + 2ab;{{(a - b)}^2} = {a^2} + {b^2} - 2ab} \right]$

$25 + 10x + 16 - 8y = 1 + 2x + 36 - 12y$

$10x - 8y + 41 - 2x + 12y - 37 = 0$

$8x + 4y + 4 = 0$

Dividing by 4 we get

$2x + y + 1 = 0 \ldots ..(1)$

Mid - point of $AB = \left( {\dfrac{{ - 5 - 1}}{2},\dfrac{{4 + 6}}{2}} \right)$

$= ( - 3,5)$

Put point $( - 3,5)$ in eqn. (1)

$2( - 3) + 5 + 1$

$ - 6 + 6$

$0$

Mid-point of $AB$ satisfy equation (1)

Hence, infinite numbers of points are there.


6. Find the coordinates of the point Q on the x-axis which lies on the perpendicular bisector of the line segment joining the points $ A\left( {--5,--2} \right) and B \left( {4,--2} \right)$ Name the type of triangle formed by the points Q, A and B.

Ans: $\Delta ABQ$ Is an isosceles triangle.
Use distance formula $= \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$ 

Let $Q(x,0)$$\left[ {\because On - axis y coordinate is zero} \right]$

$Q$ Lies on the perpendicular bisector of the line AB i.e.

$AQ = BQ$

Squaring both sides

$A{Q^2} = B{Q^2}$

${(x - 5)^2} + {(0 + 2)^2} = {(x - 4)^2} + {(0 + 2)^2}$

${x^2} + 25 - 10x + 4 = {x^2} + 16 - 8x + 4$

$29 - 10x = 20 - 8x$

$29 - 20 =  - 8x + 10x$

$9 = 2x$

$\dfrac{9}{2} = x$

$x = 4.5$

$\therefore$ The co-ordinate of $Q$ is $(4.5,0)$

$\because AQ  =  BQ$ And $Q$ lies on the perpendicular bisector of the line AB

$\therefore \Delta ABQ$ Is an isosceles triangle.


7. Find the value of $m$ if the points $A(5,1), B( - 2, - 3), C(8,2m)$ are collinear.

Ans: $m = \dfrac{{19}}{{14}}$
Given points are $A(5,1),B( - 2, - 3),C(8,2m)$

If points are collinear then the area of triangle $= 0$

$\Rightarrow 5( - 3 - 2m) - 2(2m - 1) + 8(1 + 3) = 0$

$\Rightarrow  - 15 - 10m - 4m + 2 + 32 = 0$

$\Rightarrow  - 14m + 19 = 0$

$\Rightarrow 14m = 19$

$\Rightarrow m = \dfrac{{19}}{{14}}$


8. If the point $A (2, - 4)$ is equidistant from $P (3, 8)$ and $Q ( - 10, y)$ , find the values of y. Also find distance PQ.

Ans: $13\sqrt 2  Units$ or$\sqrt {290}  Units$
Given: Point $A (2, - 4)$ is equidistant from $P (3,8)$ and $Q ( - 10,y)$

$AP = AQ$

Square both sides

$A{P^2} = A{Q^2}$

${(3 - 2)^2} + {(8 + 4)^2} = {( - 10 - 2)^2} + {(y + 4)^2}$ (Using distance formula)

${(1)^2} + {(12)^2} = {(12)^2} + {(y)^2} + {(4)^2} + 2 \times y \times 4   \left\{ {Q{{(a + b)}^2} = {a^2} + {b^2} + 2ab} \right\}$

$1 + 144 = 144 + {y^2} + 16 + 8y$

${y^2} + 8y + 15 = 0$

${y^2} + 3y + 5y + 15 = 0$

$y \times (y + 3) + 5 \times (y + 3) = 0$

$(y + 5)(y + 3) = 0$

$y =  - 5,{\text{ }}y =  - 3$

Case-I when $y =  - 5$ , $ PQ = \sqrt {{{( - 10 - 3)}^2} + {{( - 5 - 8)}^2}}  = \sqrt {169 + 169}  = 13\sqrt 2$ Units

Case-II when $y =  - 3$ , $PQ = \sqrt {{{( - 10 - 3)}^2} + {{( - 3 - 8)}^2}}  = \sqrt {169 + 121}  = \sqrt {290}$  Units


9. Find the area of the triangle whose vertices are $( - 8, 4),( - 6, 6),( - 3, 9)$
Ans: $30{\text{ Sq}}{\text{. Units}}$
Given vertices are $( - 8, 4),( - 6, 6),( - 3, 9)$

${x_1} =  - 8{x_2} =  - 6{x_3} =  - 3$
${y_1} = 4{y_2} = 6{y_3} = 9$
We know that area of triangle is

$= \dfrac{1}{2}[24 + 30 + 6]$
$= \dfrac{1}{2}[60]$
$= 30 Sq. Units$


10. In what ratio does the x–axis divide the line segment joining the points $( - 4, - 6)$ and $( - 1, 7)$? Find the coordinates of the point of division.

Ans: $Co - ordinate of P\left( {\dfrac{{ - 34}}{{13}},0} \right)$

seo images


Let the point on $x$ -axis $(x,0)$ when divides the given points $( - 4, - 6)$ and $( - 1, 7)$ in the

Ratio $k:1$

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = A( - 4, - 6)$

$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = B( - 1,7)$ 

${m_1} = k,{m_2} = 1$

Using section formula, we have
$P(x,0) = \left[ {\dfrac{{ - k - 4}}{{k + 1}},\dfrac{{7k - 6}}{{k + 1}}} \right]$

By comparing the left-hand side and the right-hand side we get
$\dfrac{{7k - 6}}{{k + 1}} = 0$

$7k - 6 = 0$

$k = \dfrac{6}{7}$

$x = \dfrac{{ - k - 4}}{{k + 1}} = \dfrac{{ - \dfrac{6}{7} - 4}}{{\dfrac{6}{7} + 1}} = \dfrac{{ - 6 - 28}}{{6 + 7}} = \dfrac{{ - 34}}{{13}}$

The required ratio is $6:7$
$Co - ordinate of P\left( {\dfrac{{ - 34}}{{13}},0} \right)$


11. Find the ratio in which the point $P\left( {\dfrac{3}{4},\dfrac{5}{{12}}} \right)$  divides the line segment joining the points $ A\left( {\dfrac{1}{2},\dfrac{3}{2}} \right)$  and $B (2, - 5)$.

Ans: $1:5$

seo images


Let the point $P\left( {\dfrac{3}{4},\dfrac{5}{{12}}} \right)$ divides the line segment joining the joining the points $A\left( {\dfrac{1}{2},\dfrac{3}{2}} \right)$ and

$B(2, - 5)$ In the ratio $k:1$.

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = \left( {\dfrac{1}{2},\dfrac{3}{2}} \right)$

$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (2, - 5)$ 

${m_1} = k,{m_2} = 1$

Using section formula, we have

$\left( {\dfrac{3}{4},\dfrac{5}{{12}}} \right) = \left[ {\dfrac{{2k + 1/2}}{{k + 1}},\dfrac{{ - 5k + 3/2}}{{k + 1}}} \right]$

$\left( {\dfrac{3}{4},\dfrac{5}{{12}}} \right) = \left[ {\dfrac{{4k + 1}}{{2k + 1}},\dfrac{{ - 10k + 3}}{{2k + 2}}} \right]$

$\dfrac{{4k + 1}}{{2k + 1}} = \dfrac{3}{4},\dfrac{{ - 10k + 3}}{{2k + 2}} = \dfrac{5}{{12}}$

$16k + 4 = 6k + 6 - 120k + 36 = 10k + 10$

$16k - 6k = 6 - 4 - 130k =  - 26$

$k = \dfrac{2}{{10}} = \dfrac{1}{5}$

Therefore the required ratio is $1:5$ 


12. If $P (9a - 2, - b)$ divides line segment joining $A (3a + 1, - 3)$ and $B (8a,5)$ in the ratio $3:1$, find the values of a and b.

Ans:  $a = 1$  and  $b =  - 3$

seo images


Point  $P (9a - 2, - b)$  divides line segment joining the points  $A (3a + 1, - 3)$  and  $B (8a,5)$ 

In ration $3:1$ 

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = (3a + 1, - 3)$ 

$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (8a,5)$  

${m_1} = 3,{m_2} = 1$ 

Using section formula, we have

$(9a - 2, - b) = \left[ {\dfrac{{24a + 3a + 1}}{4},\dfrac{{15 - 3}}{4}} \right]$ 

$(9a - 2, - b) = \left[ {\dfrac{{27a + 1}}{4},\dfrac{{12}}{4}} \right]$ 

Equate left-hand side and the right-hand side we get
$9a - 2 = \dfrac{{27a + 1}}{4}, - b = \dfrac{{12}}{4}$ 

$36a - 8 = 27a + 1, - b = 3$ 

$9a = 9,b =  - 3$ 

$a = \dfrac{9}{9}$ 

$a = 1$  And  $b =  - 3$ 


13. If  $P(a, b)$  is the mid-point of the line segment joining the points  $A(10, - 6)$  and  $B(k, 4)$  and $a - 2b  =  18$ , find the value of k and the distance AB.

Mid  -  point formula: $x = \dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},y = \dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}$

Point  $P(a, b)$  divide  $A(10, - 6)$  and  $B(k, 4)$  in two equal parts.
$a = \dfrac{{10 + k}}{2},b = \dfrac{{ - 6 + 4}}{2} = \dfrac{{ - 2}}{2} =  - 1$ 

Given:  $a - 2b = 18$ 

Put  $b =  - 1$ 

 $a - 2( - 1) = 18$ 

 $a = 18 - 12$ 

 $a = 16$ 

Now, $a = \dfrac{{10 + k}}{2}$ 

 $16 = \dfrac{{10 + k}}{2}$ 

 $32 = 10 + k$ 

 $32 - 10 = k$ 

 $22 = k$ 

 $\therefore A(10, - 6), B(22, 4)$ 

 $AB = \sqrt {{{(22 - 10)}^2} + {{(4 + 6)}^2}}$ 

 $= \sqrt {{{(12)}^2} + {{(10)}^2}}$ 

 $= \sqrt {144 + 100}$ 

 $= \sqrt {244}$ 

 $= 2\sqrt {61}$

Distance formula $= \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$
Given points area $A(2a, a - 7)$ and $B(11, - 9)$

Diameter $= 10 \sqrt 2$

Radius $= \dfrac{{10\sqrt 2 }}{2} = 5\sqrt 2$

Distance $= 5\sqrt 2$


  $\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = (2a, a - 7)$

  $\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (11, - 9)$ 


$= \sqrt {{{(11 - 2a)}^2} + {{( - 9 - a + 7)}^2}}  = (5\sqrt 2 )$

Squaring both sides ${(11 - 2a)^2} + {( - 2 - a)^2} = {(5\sqrt 2 )^2}$

$121 + 4{a^2} - 44a + 4 + {a^2} + 4a = 50$

$502 - 40a + 125 - 50 = 0$

$5{a^2} - 40a + 75 = 0$

Dividing by 5 we get

${a^2} - 8a + 15 = 0$

${a^2} - 5a - 3a + 15 = 0$

$a(a - 5) - 3(a - 5) = 0$

$(a - 5)(a - 3) = 0$

$a = 5, 3$

Here points $A(3, 2)$ and $B(5, 1)$ is divided at the point $P$ in the ratio 1:2

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = (3,2),\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (5, 1)$

${m_1} = 1,{m_2} = 2$
By section formula we have
$P(x,y) = \left[ {\dfrac{{1 \times 5 + 2 \times 3}}{{1 + 2}},\dfrac{{1 \times 1 + 2 \times 2}}{{1 + 2}}} \right]$

$= \left[ {\dfrac{{5 + 6}}{3},\dfrac{{1 + 4}}{3}} \right]$

$= \left[ {\dfrac{{11}}{3},\dfrac{5}{3}} \right]$

Line is $3x - 18y + k = 0 \ldots  \ldots (1)$

Put point $P\left( {\dfrac{{11}}{3},\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)$ in $(1)$

$Put x = \dfrac{{11}}{3},y = \dfrac{5}{3}$

$3\left( {\dfrac{{11}}{3}} \right) - 18\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right) + k = 0$

$11 - 30 + k = 0$

$D$ Is mid-point of $AB$ using mid-point formula:

$- \dfrac{1}{2} = \dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{5}{2} = \dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}$

${x_1} + {x_2} =  - 1 \ldots  \ldots $ (1)

$5 = {y_1} + {y_2} \ldots (2)$

${\text{E}}$ Is mid-point of BC using mid-point formula:
$\dfrac{{{x_2} + {x_3}}}{2} = 7,\dfrac{{{y_2} + {y_3}}}{2} = 3$

${x_2} + {x_3} = 14 \ldots  \ldots (3)$

${y_2} + {y_3} = 6 \ldots .(4)$

${\text{F}}$ is mid-point of ${\text{AB}}$ using mid-point formula:

$\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_3}}}{2} = \dfrac{7}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_3}}}{2} = \dfrac{7}{2}$


  ${x_1} + {x_3} = 7 \ldots .(5)$

  ${y_1} + {y_3} = 7 \ldots  \ldots (6)$ 


Simplifying the above equations for values of ${x_1},{y_1},{x_2},{y_2},{x_3}$ and ${y_3}$

${x_1} + {x_2} =  - 1$

${x_3} + {x_3} = 14$ {Using $(1)$ and $(3)\}$ 

${x_1} - {x_3} =  - 15 \ldots ..\left( 7 \right)$

Adding equation (5) and (7) 

$2{x_1} =  - 8$

${x_1} =  - 4$

Put ${x_1} = 4$ in (1) we

$- 4 + {x_2} =  - 1$

${x_2} =  - 1 + 4 = 3$

Put ${x_2} = 3$ in (3) 

$3 + {x_3} = 14$

${x_3} = 11$

Using equation (4) from equation (4)
${y_1} -  {y_3} = --1 .....(8)$
Adding equation (6) and (8)
$2{y_1} = 6$
${y_1} = 3$
Put ${y_1} = 3$ in eqn. (2)
$5 - 3 = {y_2}$
$2 = {y_2}$
Put ${y_2} = 2$ in eqn. (4)
$2 + {y_3} = 6$
${y_3} = 6 - 2$
${y_3} = 4$
Hence, ${x_1} =  - 4$ y $1 = 3$
${x_2} = 3{y_2} = 2$
${x_3} = 11{y_3} = 4$
$A = \left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = ( - 4,3),B = \left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (3,2),C = \left( {{x_3},{y_3}} \right) = (11,4)$

Distance formula $= \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$

$\Delta ABC$ is a right angle triangle by using Pythagoras theorem

${(AC)^2} = {(BC)^2} + {(AB)^2}$

$\left[ {{{(5 - 2)}^2} + {{(5 - 9)}^2}} \right] = \left[ {{{(2 - a)}^2} + {{(9 - 5)}^2}} \right] + \left[ {{{(a - 5)}^2} + {{(5 + 5)}^2}} \right]$

${(3)^2} + {( - 4)^2} = 4 + {a^2} - 4a + {(4)^2} + {a^2} + 25 - 10a$

$9 + 16 = 4 + {a^2} - 4a + 16 + {a^2} + 25 - 10a$

$25 = 2{a^2} - 14a + 45$

$2{a^2} - 14a + 45 - 25 = 0$

$2{a^2} - 14a + 20 = 0$

Dividing by 2 we have

${a^2} - 7a + 10 = 0$

${a^2} - 5a - 2a + 10 = 0$

$a(a - 5) - 2(a - 5) = 0$

$(a - 5)(a - 2) = 0$

$a = 5,a = 2$

$a = 5$ Is not possible because if $a = 5$ then point $B$ and $C$ coincide.

$\therefore a = 2$

$= \dfrac{1}{2}[2(5 - 5) + 2(5 - 9) + 5(9 - 5)]$

$= \dfrac{1}{2}[0 - 8 + 20]$

Ans: $\left( {\dfrac{4}{5},\dfrac{{21}}{5}} \right)$

According to question let $R = (x,y)$ and $PR = \dfrac{3}{5}PQ$

$\dfrac{{PQ}}{{PR}} = \dfrac{3}{5}$

${\text{R}}$ Lies on $PQ \therefore {\text{ }}PQ  =  PR  +  RQ$

$\dfrac{{PR + PQ}}{{PR}} = \dfrac{5}{3}$

On dividing separately we get $1 + \dfrac{{RQ}}{{PR}} = \dfrac{5}{3}$

$\dfrac{{RQ}}{{PR}} = \dfrac{5}{3} - 1 = \dfrac{2}{3}$

$\Rightarrow PR:RQ = 3:2$

Hence, $R$ divides PQ in ratio 3: 2 using section formula we have

  $\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = ( - 1, 3)$

  $\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (2, 5)$ 

${m_1} = 3,{m_2} = 2$

$R(x,y) = \left( {\dfrac{{6 - 2}}{5},\dfrac{{15 + 6}}{5}} \right)$

$R(x,y) = \left( {\dfrac{4}{5},\dfrac{{21}}{5}} \right)$

Here co- ordinates of ${\text{R}}$ is $\left( {\dfrac{4}{5},\dfrac{{21}}{5}} \right)$


19. Find the values of k if the points $A(k + 1, 2k), B(3k, 2k + 3)$ and $C(5k - 1, 5k)$are collinear.

Ans: $2,\dfrac{1}{2}$
If points $A(k + 1, 2k),B(3k, 2k + 3)$ and $C(5k - 1, 5k)$ are collinear then area of triangle is equal to zero

$[(k + 1)(2k + 3 - 5k) + 3k(5k - 2k) + (5k - 1)(2k - 2k - 3)] = 0$

$[(k + 1)(3 - 3k) + 3k(3k) + 5(k - 1)( - 3)] = 0$

$\left[ {3k - 3{k^2} + 3 - 3k + 9{k^2} - 15k + 3} \right] = 0$
$6{k^2} - 15k + 6 = 0$
$6{k^2} - 12k - 3k + 6 = 0$
$6k(k - 2) - 3(k - 2) = 0$
$(k - 2)(6k - 3)$
$k = 2,k = \dfrac{3}{6}$
$= \dfrac{1}{2}$

Hence, values of ${\text{k}}$ are $2,\dfrac{1}{2}$


20. Find the ratio in which the line $2x + 3y - 5 = 0$ divides the line segment joining the points $A(8, - 9)$ and $B(2,1)$. Also find the coordinates of the point of division.

Let point $P(x, y)$ divides the line segment joining the points $A(8, - 9)$ and $B(2, 1)$ in ratio $k:1$

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = (8, - 9)$

$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (2,1)$ 

${m_1}:{m_2} = k:1$

Using section formula we have $P(x,y) = \left[ {\dfrac{{2k + 8}}{{k + 1}},\dfrac{{k - 9}}{{k + 1}}} \right]$

Given equation is $2x + 3y - 5 = 0 \ldots (2)$

Put values of $x$ and $y$ in eqn. (2) $2\left[ {\dfrac{{2k + 8}}{{k + 1}}} \right] + 3\left[ {\dfrac{{k - 9}}{{k + 1}}} \right] - 5 = 0$

$2(2k + 3) + 3(k - 9) - 5(k + 1) = 0$
$4k + 16 + 3k - 27 - 5k - 5 = 0$
$2k - 16 = 0$
$k = 8$

Hence, P divides the line in ration $8:1$
put ${\text{k}} = 5$ in eqn. (1)
$(x, y) = \left[ {\dfrac{{2(8)}}{{8 + 1}},\dfrac{{8 - 9}}{{8 + 1}}} \right]$
Required point is $P\left( {\dfrac{8}{3},\dfrac{{ - 1}}{9}} \right)$


EXERCISE 7.4:

1. If $( - 4, 3)$ and $(4, 3)$ are two vertices of an equilateral triangle, find the coordinates of the third vertex, given that the origin lies in the interior of the triangle.

Ans: $\left( {0,3 - 4\sqrt 3 } \right)$

In equilateral triangle $AB = BC = AC$ 

$AC = \sqrt {{{(x + 4)}^2} + {{(y - 3)}^2}}$ 

$AC = \sqrt {{x^2} + 16 + 8x + {y^2} + 9 - 6y}$ 

$\left( {\because {\text{ }}{{(a + b)}^2} = {a^2} + {b^2} + 2ab{\text{and}}\left[ {{{(a - b)}^2} = {a^2} + {b^2} - 2ab} \right]} \right)$

$BC = \sqrt {{{(x - 4)}^2} + {{(y - 3)}^2}}$ 

$BC = \sqrt {{x^2} + 16 - 8x + {y^2} + 9 - 6y}$  $\left( {\because {{(a - b)}^2} = {a^2} + {b^2} - 2ab} \right)$

${\text{AC}} = {\text{BC}}$

$\sqrt {{x^2} + 16 + 8x + {y^2} + 9 - 6y}  = \sqrt {{x^2} + 16 - 8x + {y^2} + 9 - 6y}$ 

Squaring both side

$8x + 8x = 0$

$16x = 0$

$x = 0$

$C = (0,y)$

Length of $AB = \sqrt {{{(4 + 4)}^2} + {{(3 - 3)}^2}}$ 

$AB = \sqrt {{{(8)}^2}}  = 8$

$AC = AB$

$\sqrt {{x^2} + 16 + 8x + {y^2} + 9 - 6y}  = 8$

Put$x = 0$, squaring both side 

$0 + 16 + 0 + {y^2} + 9 - 6y = 64$

${y^2} - 6y + 25 - 64 = 0$

${y^2} - 6y - 39 = 0$

$y = \dfrac{{6 \pm \sqrt {36 + 156} }}{2}$

$y = \dfrac{{6 - 8\sqrt 3 }}{2}$ (For origin in the interior we take the only term with negative sign) 

$y = 3 - 4\sqrt 3$

Ans: ${\text{a}} =  - 3$ and height =$\dfrac{{24\sqrt {26} }}{{13}}$

We know that diagonals bisect each other

Hence, mid-point of ${\text{AC}} = $ Mid-point of BD
$\left( {\dfrac{{1 + a}}{2},\dfrac{{ - 2 + 2}}{2}} \right) = \left( {\dfrac{{2 - 4}}{2},\dfrac{{3 - 3}}{2}} \right)$

$\dfrac{{1 + a}}{2} =  - 1$

$1 + a =  - 2$

$a =  - 3$

$C( - 3,2)$

Area of $\Delta {\text{ABC}} = \dfrac{1}{2}\left[ {{x_1}\left( {{y_2} - {y_3}} \right) + {x_2}\left( {{y_3} - {y_1}} \right) + {x_3}\left( {{y_1} - {y_2}} \right)} \right]$

Points are ${\text{A}}(3,5),{\text{B}}(7,9),C(11,5),{\text{D}}(7,1)$

Length of ${\text{AB}} = \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$ 

${\text{AB}} = \sqrt {{{(7 - 3)}^2} + {{(9 - 5)}^2}}$ 

${\text{AB}} = \sqrt {16 + 16}$
$= \sqrt {32}  = 4\sqrt 2$

Length of ${\text{BC}} = \sqrt {{{(11 - 7)}^2} + {{(5 - 9)}^2}}$ 

${\text{BC}} = \sqrt {16 + 16}$ 

$= \sqrt {32}$ 

$= 4\sqrt 2$

Length of ${\text{CD}} = \sqrt {{{(7 - 11)}^2} + {{(1 - 5)}^2}}$ 

${\text{CD}} = \sqrt {16 + 16}$ 

$= \sqrt {32}$ 

$= 4\sqrt 2$

Length of ${\text{AD}} = \sqrt {{{(3 - 7)}^2} + {{(5 - 1)}^2}}$ 

${\text{AD}} = \sqrt {16 + 16}$ 

$= \sqrt {32}$ 

$= 4\sqrt 2$

Length of ${\text{AC}} = \sqrt {{{(11 - 3)}^2} + {{(5 - 5)}^2}}$ 

$AC = \sqrt {(8)}$ 

$= 8$

Length of ${\text{BD}} = \sqrt {{{(7 - 7)}^2} + {{(1 - 9)}^2}}$ 

${\text{BD}} = \sqrt {64}$ 

$= 8$

${\text{AB}} = {\text{BC}} = {\text{AD}},{\text{AC}} = {\text{BD}}$

Hence, ABCD is square

The diagonals cut each other at mid-point, which is the equidistance from all four corners of square.
Mid – point of ${\text{AC}} = \left( {\dfrac{{{x_1} + {x_2}}}{2},\dfrac{{{y_1} + {y_2}}}{2}} \right)$

$\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right) = (3,5)$

$\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right) = (11,5)$ 

${\text{AC}} = \left( {\dfrac{{3 + 11}}{2},\dfrac{{5 + 5}}{2}} \right)$

${\text{AC}} = (7,5)$

This should be the position of Jaspal.


6 .Ayush starts walking from his house to the office. Instead of going to the office directly, he goes to a bank first, from there to his daughter’s school and then reaches the office. What is the extra distance travelled by Ayush in reaching his office? (Assume that all distances covered are in straight lines). If the house is situated at $(2,4)$ , bank at $(5,8)$ , school at $(13,14)$ and office at $\left( {13,{\text{ }}26} \right)$ and coordinates are in ${\text{km}}$.

Ans: The given point are $(2,4),(5,8),(13,14),(13,26)$

Distance between house and bank 

$= \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$

$= \sqrt {{{(5 - 2)}^2} + {{(8 - 4)}^2}}$ 

$= \sqrt {9 + 16}  = 5{\text{ Km}}$

Distance between bank and school 

$= \sqrt {{{(13 - 5)}^2} + {{(14 - 8)}^2}}$

$= \sqrt {64 + 36}$ 

$= \sqrt {100}  = 10{\text{ Km}}$

Distance between school and office
$= \sqrt {{{(13 - 13)}^2} + {{(26 - 14)}^2}}$
$= \sqrt {{{(12)}^2}}  = 12{\text{ Km}}$

Distance between office and house
$= \sqrt {{{(13 - 2)}^2} + {{(26 - 14)}^2}}$ 

$= \sqrt {121 + 484}$ 

$= \sqrt {605}$ 

$= 24 \cdot 59{\text{ Km}}$

Total distance covered from house to bank, bank to school, school to office $= 5 + 10 + 12 = 27$

Extra distance covered$= 27 - 24.59 = 2.41{\text{km}}$

FAQs on NCERT Exemplar for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7 - Coordinate Geometry (Book Solutions)

1. How should I tackle questions of the form "Which line is parallel to line BAB and intersects line ABC at point D?"

As a general rule, if several lines have the same gradient then any line on that line will intersect the desired line. For example, let us consider the line:


AB = DC (1)


Let us take the line CBA, which intersects AB at point D. If C is taken to be the line parallel to AB and having the same gradient, then line CBA intersects line AB at point D.Another example would be if you wanted to find a line which intersects a line at a particular angle.
