#### Question 2:

Write down the coordinates of each of the points *A*, *B*, *C*, *D*, *E* shown below:

#### Answer:

Draw perpendicular *AL, BM, CN, DP and EQ *on the *X*-axis.

(i) Distance of *A* from the *Y-*axis = *OL* = -6 units

Distance of *A* from the* X-*axis = *AL* = 5 units

Hence, the coordinates of *A* are (-6,5).

(ii) Distance of *B* from the *Y*-axis = *OM* = 5 units

Distance of *B* from the *X-*axis = *BM* = 4 units

Hence, the coordinates of *B* are (5,4).

(iii) Distance of *C* from the *Y-*axis = *ON* = -3 units

Distance of *C* from the *X-*axis = *CN* = 2 units

Hence, the coordinates of *C* are (-3,2).

(iv) Distance of *D* from the *Y-*axis = *OP* = 2 units

Distance of *D* from the *X*-axis = *DP* = -2 units

Hence, the coordinates of *D* are (2,-2).

#### Question 6:

Plot the points *A*(2, 5), *B*(–2, 2) and *C*(4, 2) on a graph paper. Join *AB, BC* and *AC*. Calculate the area of ∆*ABC*.

#### Answer:

Abscissa of *D* = Abscissa of *A* = 2

Ordinate of *D* = Ordinate of *B* = 2

Now,

BC = (2 + 4) units = 6 units

AD = (5 – 2) units = 3 units

$\mathrm{Area}\mathrm{of}\u2206ABC=\frac{1}{2}\times \mathrm{Base}\times \mathrm{Height}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{{\displaystyle 1}}{{\displaystyle 2}}\times BC\times AD\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{1}{2}\times 6\times 3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=9$

Hence, area of ∆*ABC *is 9 square units.

#### Page No 175:

#### Question 7:

Three vertices of a rectangle *ABCD *are *A*(3, 1), *B*(–3, 1) and *C*(–3, 3). Plot these points on a graph paper and find the coordinates of the fourth vertex *D*. Also, find the area of rectangle *ABCD*.

#### Answer:

Let *A*(3, 1), *B*(–3, 1) and *C*(–3, 3) be three vertices of a rectangle *ABCD*.

Let the *y*-axis cut the rectangle *ABCD* at the points *P* and *Q *respectively.

Abscissa of *D* = Abscissa of *A* = 3.

Ordinate of *D* = Ordinate of *C* = 3.

∴ coordinates of *D* are (3, 3).

*AB* = (*BP* + *PA*) = (3 + 3) units = 6 units.

*BC* = (*OQ* – *OP*) = (3 – 1) units = 2 units.

Ar(rectangle *ABCD*) = (*AB* × *BC*)

= (6 × 2) sq. units

= 12 sq. units

Hence, the area of rectangle *ABCD* is 12 square units.

(d) in the IV quadrant

#### Answer:

The coordinates of a point on the *x*-axis are of the form (*x*, 0) and that of the point on the *y*-axis is of the form (0, *y*).

#### Answer:

The given points are A(–2, 3) and B(–3, 5).

Abscissa of A = *x*-coordinate of A = –2

Point (5,15) does not satisfy the equation *y* = 2*x* +3. (∵ *y*= 2 × 5 + 3 = 13$\ne $15)

Hence, the point (3,9) lies on the line *y* = 2*x* +3.

(b) Point (2,10) satisfy the equation *y *= 3*x* + 4. (∵*y* = 3 × 2 + 4 = 10)

(c) Point (-1,1) satisfy the equation *y *= 3*x* + 4. (∵*y* = 3 × -1 + 4 = 1)

(d) Point (4,12) does not satisfy the equation *y* = 3*x* + 4. (∵ *y* = 3 × 4 + 4 = 16 ≠ 12)

Hence, the point (4,12) do not lie on the line *y* = 3*x* +4.
