## Exercise 7.1 Class 10 Maths

Co-Ordinate Geometry

#### Class 10 Maths Ex 7.1 Question 1

Find the distances between following pairs of points:

(i) (2, 3), (4, 1)               (ii) (-5, 7),  (-1, 3)

(iii) (a, b), (-a, -b)

Solutions: (i) Distance between (2, 3) and (4, 1)

is    = $\sqrt{(4 - 2)² + (1 - 3)²}$

= $\sqrt{(2)² + (-2)²}$

= $\sqrt{4 + 4}$ = √8  =  2√2

Therefore, Required Distance is 2√2 unites.

(ii) Diastance between (-5. 7) and (-1, 3)

is    = $\sqrt{(-1 - (-5))² + (3 - 7)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-1 + 5)² + (-4)²}$

= $\sqrt{(4)² + (-4)²}$

= $\sqrt{16 + 16}$  = √32  =  4√2

Therefore, Required Distance = 4√2 unites.

(iii) Distance between (a, b) and (-a, -b)

is   = $\sqrt{ (-a - a)² + (-b - b)²}$

= $\sqrt{ (-2a)² + (-2b)²}$

= $\sqrt{ 4(a² + b²)}$

= 2$\sqrt{a² + b²}$

Therefore, The required distance is 2$\sqrt{a² + b²}$  unites.

#### Class 10 Maths Ex 7.1 Question 2

Find the distance between (0, 0) and (36, 15).

Solution: The distance between the origin and (36, 15)

is = $\sqrt{36² + 15²}$ = $\sqrt{1296 + 225}$

= $\sqrt{1521}$ = 39

So, Required distance between the given points is 39 unites.

#### Class 10 Maths Ex 7.1 Question 3

Determine the points (1, 5), (2, 3) and (-2, -11) are collinear.

Solution:

First Method:

Let the points be A(1, 5), B(2, 3) and C(-2, -11)

Now, Distance AB = $\sqrt{(2 - 1)² + (3 - 5)²}$

= $\sqrt{(1)² + (-2)²}$

= $\sqrt{5}$

Distance BC         = $\sqrt{(-2 - 2)² + (-11 - 3)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-4)² + (-14)²}$

= $\sqrt{16 + 196}$

= $\sqrt{212}$ = 2√53

Distance AC         = $\sqrt{(-2 - 1 )² + (-11 - 5 )²}$

= $\sqrt{(-3)² + (-16)²}$

= $\sqrt{9 + 256}$ = $\sqrt{265}$

Clearly, AB + BC ≠ AC here.

So, The given three are not collinear.

2nd Method:

Here,

x1 = 1, y1 = 5, x2 = 2, y2 = 3, x3 = -2, y3 = -11

Now,  x1 (y2 –  y3) + x2 (y3 – y1) + x3 (y1 – y2)

= 1{3 – (-11)} + 2(-11 – 5) + (-2)(5 – 3)

= 1 (3 + 11) + 2 × (-16) -2 × 2 = 14-32-4

= -22 ≠ 0

Therefore, The given three points will create a triangle, means the points are not collinear.

#### Class 10 Maths Ex 7.1 Question 4

Check whether the points (5, -2), (6, 4) and (7, -2) are the vertices of an isosceles triangle.

Solution: Let the points be A(5, -2), B(6, 4) and C(7, -2)

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

= $\sqrt{(1)² + (6)²}$

= $\sqrt{1 + 36}$

= $\sqrt{37}$

Distance BC = $\sqrt{(7 - 6)² + (-2 - 4 )²}$

= $\sqrt{(1)² + (-6)²}$

= $\sqrt{1 + 36}$ = $\sqrt{37}$

We get, AB = BC

So, The given three points are the vertices of a isosceles triangle.

#### Class 10 Maths Ex 7.1 Question 6

Name the type of quadrilateral formed if any, by the following points, and give reasons for your answers.

1. (-1, -2), (1, 0), (-1, 2), (-3, 0)
2. (-3, 5), (3, 1), (0, 3), (-1, -4)
3. (4, 5), (7, 6), (4, 3), (1, 2)

Solutions:

(i) let the points be P(-1, -2), Q(1, 0), R(-1, 2) and S(-3, 0)

Distance PQ = $\sqrt{(1 - (-1))² + (0 - (-2) )²}$

= $\sqrt{(1 + 1)² + (0 + 2)²}$

= $\sqrt{4 + 4}$

= $\sqrt{8}$ = 2$\sqrt{2}$

Distance QR = $\sqrt{(-1 - 1)² + (2 - 0)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-2)² + (2)²}$

= $\sqrt{4 + 4}$

= 2$\sqrt{2}$

Distance RS  = $\sqrt{(-3 - (-1))² + (0 - 2)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-3 + 1)² + (-2)²}$

= $\sqrt{4 + 4}$

= 2$\sqrt{2}$

Distance PS  = $\sqrt{(-3 - (-1))² + (0 - (-2))²}$

= $\sqrt{(-3 + 1)² + (0 + 2)²}$

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

So, we found that the lenghts of all the sides are equal.

Diagonal PR = $\sqrt{(-1 - (-1))² + (2 - (-2))²}$

= $\sqrt{(-1 + 1)² + (2 + 2)²}$

= $\sqrt{0 + 16}$ = 4

Diagonal QS = $\sqrt{(-3 -1)² + (0 - 0)²}$

= $\sqrt{16 + 0}$  = 4

Finally, we also found that the lenghts of diagonal are also same.

This is the property of rhombus. So, The four given points will form a rhombus.

(ii) Let the points be P(-3, 5), Q(3, 1), R(0, 3) and S(-1, -4)

Distance PQ = $\sqrt{(3 - (-3))² + (1 - 5)²}$

= $\sqrt{(3 + 3)² + (-4)²}$

= $\sqrt{36 + 16}$

= $\sqrt{52}$ = 2$\sqrt{13}$

Distance QR = $\sqrt{(0 - 3)² + (3 - 1)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-3)² + (2)²}$

= $\sqrt{9 + 4}$ = $\sqrt{13}$

Distance RS = $\sqrt{(-1 - 0)² + (-4 -3)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-1)² + (-7)²}$

= $\sqrt{1 + 49}$

= $\sqrt{50}$ = 5$\sqrt{2}$

Distance PS = $\sqrt{(-1 - (-3))² + (-4 -5)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-1 + 3)² + (-9)²}$

= $\sqrt{4 + 81}$

= $\sqrt{85}$

Here, All the lenghts are unequal.

So, The given points will not create any quadrilateral.

(iii) Let the points be P(4, 5), Q(7, 6), R(4, 3) and S(1, 2)

Distance PQ = $\sqrt{(7 - 4)² + (6 - 5)²}$

= $\sqrt{(3)² + (1)²}$

= $\sqrt{9 + 1}$ = $\sqrt{10}$

Distance QR = $\sqrt{(4 - 7)² + (3 - 6)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-3)² + (-3)²}$

= $\sqrt{9 + 9}$ = 3$\sqrt{2}$

Distance RS = $\sqrt{(1 - 4)² + (2 - 3)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-3)² + (-1)²}$

= $\sqrt{9 + 1}$ = $\sqrt{10}$

Distance PS = $\sqrt{(1 - 4)² + (2 -5)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-3)² + (-3)²}$

= $\sqrt{9 + 9}$ =  3$\sqrt{2}$

We see that the oposite sides are equal. Lets find the diagonal now,

Diagonal PR = $\sqrt{(4 - 4)² + (3 -5)²}$

= $\sqrt{0 + 4}$ = 2

Diagonal QS = $\sqrt{(1 - 7)² + (2 - 6)²}$

= $\sqrt{(-6)² + (-4)²}$

= $\sqrt{36 + 16}$ = $\sqrt{52}$

We see that the diagonals are not equal.

So, clearly, the formed quadrilateral is a Parallelogram.

#### Class 10 Maths Ex 7.1 Question 7

Find the point on the x axis which is equidistant from (2, -5) and (-2, 9).

Solution: Let the point on the X axis be (x, 0)

Given, distance between (2, -5), (x, 0) = distance between (-2, 9), (x, 0)

$\sqrt{(x - 2)²+(0 - (-5))²}$ =$\sqrt{(x - (-2) )²+(0 - 9)²}$

⇒ (x – 2)² + 5² = (x + 2)² + 9² [squaring both sides]

⇒ x² – 4x + 4 + 25 = x² + 4x + 4 + 81

⇒ -4x -4x = 85 – 29

⇒ -8x = 56  ⇒ x = $\cfrac {56} {-8}$

⇒ x = -7

Therefore, The required point on the x axis is (-7, 0).

#### Class 10 Maths Ex 7.1 Question 8

Find the value of y for which the distance between the points P(2, -3) and Q(10, y) is 10 unites.

Solution: Given that,

Distance Between P(2, -3) and Q(10, y) = 10 unites

$\sqrt{(10 - 2)² + (y - (-3) )²}$ = 10

⇒ (8)² + (y + 3)² = 100  [squaring both sides]

⇒ 64 + y² + 6y + 9 = 100

⇒ y² + 6y + 73 – 100 = 0

⇒ y² + 6y – 27 = 0

⇒ y² +9y – 3y – 27 = 0

⇒ y(y + 9) – 3(y + 9) = 0

⇒ (y + 9)(y – 3) = 0

So, y + 9 = 0 OR y – 3 = 0

⇒ y = – 9 OR y = 3

Therefore, Required y = -9 or 3

#### Class 10 Maths Ex 7.1 Question 9

If Q(0, 1) is equidistant from P(5, -3) and R(x, 6), Find the value of x. Also find the distance QR and PR.

Solution: Given that,

Distance QR = Distance QP

$\sqrt{(x - 0)² + (6 - 1 )²}$ =$\sqrt{(5 - 0)² + (-3 - 1)²}$

⇒ x² + 25 = 25 + 16

⇒ x² = 16

So, x = ±√16 = ±4

Now, For x = 4

QR = $\sqrt{(4 - 0)² + (6 - 1 )²}$ = $\sqrt{16 + 25}$ = $\sqrt{41}$

PR = $\sqrt{(x - 5)² + (6 - (-3) )²}$

= $\sqrt{(4 - 5)² + (6 +3 )²}$

= $\sqrt{1 + 81}$ = $\sqrt{82}$

For x = -4,

QR = $\sqrt{(-4 - 0)² + (6 - 1 )²}$ = $\sqrt{16 + 25}$

= $\sqrt{41}$

PR = $\sqrt{(x - 5)² + (6 - (-3) )²}$

= $\sqrt{(-4 - 5)² + (6 +3 )²}$

= $\sqrt{81 + 81}$ = 9$\sqrt{2}$

Therefore, Required value of x = ±4 and QR = √41 and PR = √82 or 9√2

#### Class 10 Maths Ex 7.1 Question 10

Find a relation between x and y such that the point (x, y) is equidistant from the points (3, 6) and (-3, 4).

Solution: Given that,

Distance between (3, 6), (x, y) = Distance between (-3, 4), (x, y)

$\sqrt{(x - 3)² + (y - 6)²}$ = $\sqrt{(x - (-3))² + (y - 4)²}$

⇒ (x – 3)² + (y – 6)² = (x +3)² + (y – 4)² [squaring both sides]

⇒ x² – 6x + 9 + y² -12y + 36 = x² + 6x + 9 + y² – 8y + 16

⇒ – 6x – 6x -12y + 8y + 45 – 25 = 0

⇒ – 12x – 4y + 20 = 0   [divide both side by -4]

⇒ 3x + y – 5 = 0

— Which is the required condition.

## The particular formula to find the distance between any two co-ordinate points is known as the “distance formula”. Let us imagine two co-ordinate points as A(x1, y1) and B(x2, y2), Then the distance between the two pints A and B is given by the following formula–

 AB = $\sqrt{(x2 - x1)² + (y2 - y1)²}$

–This formula is known as the distance formula.

### Proof of Distance Formula:

Let us consider two points A(x1, y1) and B(x2, y2) in co-ordinate plane. We draw perpendicular on X-axis from A and B as AP and BQ. Also draw AM ⊥ BQ. Here, AM = PQ = OQ – OP = x2 – x1

Also, BM = BQ – MQ = y2 – y1

Now, In ΔABM, ∠M = 90°

So, using Pythagoras Theorem on ΔABM,

AB = Distance between the two points

= $\sqrt{AM² + BM²}$

= $\sqrt{(x - 5)² + (6 - (-3) )²}$

= $\sqrt{(x2 - x1)² + (y2 - y1)²}$

Hence the proof.

### Special Case of Distance Formula:

If we need to find the distance between any one points from the origin (0, 0), then we can deduce a shortcut formula from the distance formula. Let A(x, y) be any points. Then the distance between A and origin O will be-

 AO = $\sqrt{x² + y²}$

## Co-ordinate Geometry General Knowledge:

Some most important facts of Co-Ordinate Geometry are given bellow-

• Co-ordinate of origin is (0, 0)
• Co-ordinate of a point on X-axis is (x, 0)
• Co-ordinate of a point on Y-axis is (0, y)
• Distant from X-axis to (x, y) point is = y unites
• Distant from Y-axis to (x, y) point is = x unites
• Co-ordinate of a point in 1st Quadrant = (x, y)
• Co-ordinate of a point in 2st Quadrant = (-x, y)
• Co-ordinate of a point in 3st Quadrant = (-x, -y)
• Co-ordinate of a point in 4st Quadrant = (x, -y)
• Equation of a X- axis is: y = 0
• Equation of a Y- axis is: x = 0
• Equation of a line parallel to X-axis: y = a
• Equation of a line parallel to Y-axis: x = b
