41. 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,

= (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

(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**

42. 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

Dividing 4 on both sides, we get

=>

**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**
Workspace

43. 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

x intercept occurs when y = 0

So, subs y = 0 in 3x + 2y = 6

=> 3x + 2(0) = 6

=> 3x = 6

=>

Now, y intercept occurs when x=0

So, subs x = 0 in 3x + 2y = 6

=> 3(0) + 2y = 6

=> 2y = 6

=>

= (1/2) * 2 * 3

**To find the points where this line connects with the x and y axis.**__Step 1:__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****To find the area of the triangle**__Step 2:__**Area of the triangle = (1/2) * base * height**= (1/2) * 2 * 3

**=**3 sq units**Thus,****Area of the triangle = 3 sq units.**

44. 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:

The center-radius form of the circle equation is in the format

Given eqn is:

Group the

=>(x^2 + 6x) + (y^2 – 10y) = 120

Take the

=> (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: (

*x*-stuff together. And then*y*-stuff together.=>(x^2 + 6x) + (y^2 – 10y) = 120

Take the

*x*-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 the*y*-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: (

*x*–*h*)^{2}+ (*y*–*k*)^{2}=*r*^{2}=>

**The center is at (h, k) = (-3, 5)**

Explanation:

For general format ofcircle:

The center-radius form of the circle equation is in the format

Given eqn is:

Group the

=>(x^2 – 2x) + (y^2 – 6y) = 12

Take the

=> (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: (

=>

*ax*^{2}+*by*^{2}+*cx*+*dy*+*e*= 0The center-radius form of the circle equation is in the format

**(**, with the center being at the point(*x*–*h*)^{2}+ (*y*–*k*)^{2}=*r*^{2}*h, k*)and the radius being "*r*".Given eqn is:

**x^2+y^2-2x-6y=12**Group the

47. 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)

= (6-3)/ (2-1)

= 3/1

Here subs, x = 1, y = 3 and m = 3

3 = 3(1) + c

=> 3 = 3 + c

=>

=>

(x2, y2) = (2,6)

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

= 3/1

**=> m = 3****To find y intercept:**__Step 2:__**y = mx + c**Here subs, x = 1, y = 3 and m = 3

3 = 3(1) + c

=> 3 = 3 + c

=>

**C = 3 – 3 = 0****: Equation of line (in slope- intercept form)**__Step 3__**y = mx + c**=>

**y = 3x**---> which is the correct answer.
