Question 1:
Plot the points (5, 0), (5, 1), (5, 8). Do they lie on a line? What is your observation?
Ans:
Take a point O on the graph paper and draw horizontal and vertical lines OX and OY respectively.
Then, let on the xaxis and y axis 1 cm represents 1 unit.
In order to plot point (5, 0), we start from the origin O and move 5 cm along OX. The point we arrive at is point (5,0).
To plot point (5, 1), we move 5 cm along OX and 1 cm along OY. The point we arrive at is point (5,1).
To plot point (5,8), we move 5 cm along OX and 8 cm along OY. The point we arrive at is point (5,8).
From the graph below, it can be seen that the points lie on a line parallel to yaxis. This is because they have the same xcoordinate.
Question 2:
Plot the points (2, 8), (7, 8) and (12, 8). Join these points in pairs. Do they lie on a line? What do you observe?
Ans:
Take a point O on the graph paper and draw the horizontal and vertical lines OX and OY respectively.
Then, let on the xaxis and y axis 1 cm represents 1 unit.
In order to plot point (2, 8), we start from the origin O and move 8 cm along OX. The point we arrive at is (2, 8).
To plot point (7, 8), we move 7 cm along OX and 8 cm along OY. The point we arrive at is (7, 8).
To plot point (12, 8), we move 12 cm along OX and 8 cm along OY. The point we arrive at is (12,8).
From the graph below, it can be seen that the points lie on a line parallel to xaxis because they have the same ycoordinate.

In order to plot point (1, 1), we start from the origin O and move 2 cm along OX and 1 cm along OY. The point we arrive at is (1, 1).
To plot point (1, 2), we move 1 cm along OX and 2 cm along OY. The point we arrive at is (1, 2).
To plot point (1, 3), we move 1 cm along OX and 3 cm along OY. The point we arrive at is (1, 3).
To plot point (1, 4), we move 1 cm along OX and 4 cm along OY. The point we arrive at is (1, 4).

Question 4:
Find the coordinates of points A, B, C, D in Fig. 27.7.
Ans:
Draw perpendiculars AP, BP, CQ and DR from A, B, C and D on the xaxis. Also, draw perpendiculars AW, BX, CY and DZ on the yaxis.
From the figure, we have:
AW = 1 unit and AP= 1 unit
So, the coordinates of vertex A are (1, 1).
Similarly, BX=1 unit and BP= 4 units
So, the coordinates of vertex B are (1, 4).
CY = 4 units and CQ= 6 units
So, the coordinates of vertex B are (4, 6).
DZ = 5 units and DR= 3 units
So, the coordinates of vertex B are (5, 3).
Question 5:
Find the coordinates of points P, Q, R and S in Fig. 27.8.
Ans:
Draw perpendiculars PA, QB, RC and SD from vertices P, Q, R and S on the xaxis. Also ,draw perpendiculars
PE, QF, RG and SH on the yaxis from these points.
PE = 10 units and PA = 70 units
Therefore, the coordinates of vertex P are (10, 70).
QF = 12 units and QB = 80 units
Therefore, the coordinates of vertex Q are (12, 80).
RG = 16 units and RC = 100 units
Therefore, the coordinates of vertex R are (16, 100).
SH = 20 units and SD = 120 units
Therefore, the coordinates of vertex S are (20, 120).
Question 6:
Write the coordinates of each of the vertices of each polygon in Fig. 27.9.
Ans:
From the figure, we have:
In polygon OXYZ:
O lies on the origin and the coordinates of the origin are (0, 0). So, the coordinates of O are (0, 0).
X lies on the yaxis. So, the xcoordinate is 0. Hence, the coordinate of X is (0, 2).
Also, YX is equal to 2 units and YZ is equal to 2 units. So, the coordinates of vertex Y are (2, 2).
Z lies on the xaxis. So, the ycoordinate is 0. Hence, the coordinates of Z are (2, 0).
In polygon ABCD:
Draw perpendiculars DG, AH, CI and BJ from A, B, C and D on the xaxis.
Also, draw perpendiculars DF, AE, CF and BE from A, B, C and D on the yaxis.
Now, from the figure:
DF = 3 units and DG = 3 units
Therefore, the coordinates of D are (3, 3).
AE = 4 units and AH = 5 units
Therefore, the coordinates of A are (4, 5).
CF = 6 units and CI = 3 units
Therefore, the coordinates of C are (6, 3).
BE = 7 units and BJ = 5 units
Therefore, the coordinates of B are (7, 5).
In polygon PQR:
Draw perpendiculars PJ, QK and RK from P, Q and R on the xaxis.
Also, draw perpendiculars PW, QE and RF from P, Q and R on the yaxis.
Now, from the figure:
PW = 7 units and PJ = 4 units
Therefore, the coordinates of P are (7, 4).
QE = 9 units and QK = 5 units
Therefore, the coordinates of Q are (9, 5).
RF = 9 units and RK = 3 units
Therefore, the coordinates of R are (9, 3).

Question 7:
Decide which of the following statements is true and which is false. Give reasons for your answer.
(i) A point whose xcoordinate is zero, will lie on the yaxis.
(ii) A point whose ycoordinate is zero, will lie on xaxis.
(iii) The coordinates of the origin are (0, 0).
(iv) Points whose x and y coordinates are equal, lie on a line passing through the origin.
Ans:
(i) The examples of points having xcoordinate as zero are (0,3), (0,6), (0,9). This can be represented in the following manner:
From the figure, it can be seen that these points lie on the yaxis. Hence, the statement is true.
(ii) The examples of points having ycoordinate as zero are (3,0), (6,0), (9,0). This can be represented in the following manner:
From figure above, it can be seen that these points lie on the xaxis. Hence, the statement is true.
(iii) The origin divides each of these axes into a positive and a negative semiaxis. The coordinates of the origin are always are zero, i.e. (0,0). Thus, the statement is true.
(iv) The examples of points having equal x and y coordinates are (0,0), (1,1), (2,2), etc. If these points are joined, they will lie on a line passing through the coordinates (0,0). Thus, the statement is true.
