Geometry Questions

1.

Find the center of the circle whose equation is x^2 + y^2 -10x + 12y -10 = 0 




SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:(5, -6)
Explanation:
For general format ofcircle: ax2+by2+cx+dy+e= 0
The center-radius form of the circle equation is in the format(xh)2+ (yk)2=r2, with the center being at the point(h, k) and the radius being "r".

Given eqn is: x^2 + y^2 -10x + 12y -10 = 0
=> x^2 + y^2 -10x + 12y = 10
Group thex-stuff together. And theny-stuff together.
=>(x^2 - 10x) + (y^2 + 12y) = 10
Take thex-term coefficient, multiply it by one-half, square it, and then add this to both sides of the equation, as shown. Do the same with they-term coefficient.
=> (x^2 - 10x + 25) + (y^2 + 12y + 36) = 10 + 25 + 36
=> (x – 5)^2 + (y + 6)^2 = 71
=> (x – 5)^2 + [y – (-6)]^2 = 71
On comparing it with center-radius form of the circle equation: (xh)2+ (yk)2=r2
=> The center is at (h, k) = (5, -6)


2. Find the distance between the points (2,2) and (-1,6) 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:5 units
Explanation:
Given, two points, (x1,y1) = (2,2)
And (x2,y2) = (-1,6)

Distance between the points = sqrt {(x2 – x1)^2 + (y2 – y1)^2}
= sqrt {(-1 – 2)^2 + (6 – 2)^2}
= sqrt {9 + 16}
= sqrt(25)
= 5
Thus, Distance between the points = 5


3. Find the distance between the points (2,3) and (3,4) 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:sqrt(2)
Explanation:
Given two points, (x1,y1) = (2,3)
And (x2,y2) = (3,4)

Distance between the points = sqrt {(x2 – x1)^2 + (y2 – y1)^2}
= sqrt {(3 – 2)^2 + (4 – 3)^2}
= sqrt {1 + 1}
= sqrt(2)
Thus, Distance between the points = sqrt(2)


4. Find the area of the triangle formed by the three points whose coordinates are (2, 3), (4, 5) and  (6, 3). 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:4 sq units
Explanation:
Given, three points are
(x1,y1) = (2,3)
(x2,y2) = (4,5)
(x3,y3) = (6,3)

Then, Area of triangle = (1/2) * | (x1y2 + x2y3 + x3y1) – (x2y1 + x3y2 + x1y3)|
= (1/2) * | (2x5 + 4x3 + 6x3) – (4x3 + 6x5 + 2x3)|
= (1/2) * |(10 + 12 + 18) – (12 + 30 + 6)|
= (1/2) * |40 – 48|
= (1/2) * |(-8)|
= (1/2) * 8
= 4
Therefore, Area of triangle = 4 sq.units


5. Find the slope of the line whose equation is 4y +12x - 1 = 0



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:-3
Explanation:
Given, eqn of line is: 4y +12x - 1 = 0
=> 4y = -12x + 1
Dividing 4 on both sides, we get
=> y = -3x + (1/4)
On comparing this eqn with the standard eqn of line: y = mx + c
Here, Slope = m = -3


6. Find the area of the triangle formed by the line 3x+2y=6, in the first coordinate. 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:3 sq units
Explanation:
Given, eqn of line: 3x + 2y = 6

Step 1: To find the points where this line connects with the x and y axis.
x intercept occurs when y = 0
So, subs y = 0 in 3x + 2y = 6
=> 3x + 2(0) = 6
=> 3x = 6
=> x = 2 = base of the triangle.

Now, y intercept occurs when x=0
So, subs x = 0 in 3x + 2y = 6
=> 3(0) + 2y = 6
=> 2y = 6
=> y = 3 = height of the triangle

Step 2: To find the area of the triangle
Area of the triangle = (1/2) * base * height
= (1/2) * 2 * 3
= 3 sq units
Thus, Area of the triangle = 3 sq units.


7. Find the center of the circle whose equation is x^2 + y^2 + 6x  - 10y - 120 = 0



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:(-3 , 5)
Explanation:
For general format ofcircle: ax2+by2+cx+dy+e= 0
The center-radius form of the circle equation is in the format(xh)2+ (yk)2=r2, with the center being at the point(h, k)and the radius being "r".

Given eqn is: x^2 + y^2 + 6x - 10y - 120 =0
=> x^2 + y^2 + 6x - 10y = 120
Group thex-stuff together. And theny-stuff together.
=>(x^2 + 6x) + (y^2 – 10y) = 120
Take thex-term coefficient, multiply it by one-half, square it, and then add this to both sides of the equation, as shown. Do the same with they-term coefficient.
=> (x^2 + 6x + 9) + (y^2 – 10y + 25) = 120 + 9 + 25
=> (x + 3)^2 + (y – 5)^2 = 154
On comparing it with center-radius form of the circle equation: (xh)2+ (yk)2=r2
=> The center is at (h, k) = (-3, 5)


8. Which of the following points in the given options does not lie on the circle x^2 + y^2 = 10



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:(2,8)
Explanation:


9. Find the center of the circle whose equation is x^2+y^2-2x-6y=12 



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:(1, 3)
Explanation:
For general format ofcircle: ax2+by2+cx+dy+e= 0
The center-radius form of the circle equation is in the format(xh)2+ (yk)2=r2, with the center being at the point(h, k)and the radius being "r".

Given eqn is: x^2+y^2-2x-6y=12
Group thex-stuff together. And theny-stuff together.
=>(x^2 – 2x) + (y^2 – 6y) = 12
Take thex-term coefficient, multiply it by one-half, square it, and then add this to both sides of the equation, as shown. Do the same with they-term coefficient.
=> (x^2 – 2x + 1) + (y^2 – 6y + 9) = 12 + 1 + 9
=> (x – 1)^2 + (y – 3)^2 = 22
On comparing it with center-radius form of the circle equation: (xh)2+ (yk)2=r2
=> The center is at (h, k) = (1, 3)


10. In which of the following lines, do these two point (1,3) and (2,6) lies?



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:y = 3x
Explanation:
Given, two points, (x1, y1) = (1,3)
(x2, y2) = (2,6)

Step 1: To find slope of the line:
Slope (m) = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)
= (6-3)/ (2-1)
= 3/1
=> m = 3

Step 2: To find y intercept:
y = mx + c
Here subs, x = 1, y = 3 and m = 3
3 = 3(1) + c
=> 3 = 3 + c
=> C = 3 – 3 = 0

Step 3: Equation of line (in slope- intercept form)
y = mx + c
=> y = 3x ---> which is the correct answer.
