PQ = √(x2 – x1)2 + (y2 – y1)2
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AB = √{(15 – 9)2 + (11 – 3)2}
= √{(6)2 + (8)2}
= √{36 + 64}
= √100
∴ AB = 10 units.

RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AB = √{(– 5 – 7)2 + (1 – (– 4))2}
= √{(– 12)2 + (5)2}
= √{144 + 25}
= √169
∴ AB = 13 units

PQ = √(x2 – x1)2 + (y2 – y1)2
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
PQ = √{(a cos a – a sin a)2 – (– a sin a – a cos a)2}
= √{(a2 cos2 a + a2 sin2 a – 2a2 sina.cosa + a2 cos2 a + a2 sin2 a + 2a2 sina.cosa }
= √{ a2 (cos2 a + sin2 a) + (a2 (cos2 a + sin2 a))}
= √a2(1) + a2 (1)
= √a2(1 + 1)
∴ PQ = a√2 units


Q.7. Find the distance of each of the following points from the origin:

Since it is given that the distance is to be found from origin so in this question we have to use the distance formula keeping one – point fix i.e. O (0,0), as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
OA = √{(5 – 0)2 + (– 12 – 0)2}
= √{(5)2 + (– 12)2}
= √{25 + 144}
= √169

OB = √{(– 5 – 0)2 + (5 – 0)2}
= √{(– 5)2 + (5)2}
= √{25 + 25}
= √50
∴ OB = 5√2 units

OC = √{(– 4 – 0)2 + (– 6 – 0)2}
= √{(– 4)2 + (– 6)2}
= √{16 + 36}
∴ OC = √52 units


Q.10. Find all possible values of × for which the distance between the points A(x, – 1) and B(5, 3) is 5 units.

Given:
Distance AB = 5 units
By distance formula, as shown below:

RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AB = √{(5 – x)2 + (3 – (– 1))2}
5 = √{(5 – x)2 + (4)2}
5 = √{25 + x2 – 10x + 16}
5 = √{41 + x2 – 10x}
Squaring both sides we get
25 = 41 + x2 – 10x
⇒ 16 + x2 – 10x = 0
⇒ (x – 8)(x – 2) = 0
⇒ × = 8 or × = 2
∴ The values of × can be 8 or 2


Q.11. Find all possible values of y for which the distance between the points A(2, – 3) and B(10, y) is 10 units.

Given, the distance AB = 10 units
By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AB = √{(10 – 2)2 + (y – (– 3))2}
10 = √{(8)2 + (y + 3)2}
10 = √{64 + y2 + 6y + 9}
10 = √{73 + y2 + 6y}
Squaring both sides we get
100 = 73 + y2 + 6y
On solving the equation, 100 = 73 + y2 + 6y
⇒ 27 + y2 + 6y = 0
⇒ y2 + 6y + 27 = 0
⇒ (y – 3)(y + 9) = 0
⇒ y = 3 or y = – 9
∴ The values of y can be 3 or – 9


Q.12. Find the values of x for which the distance between the points P(x, 4) and Q(9, 10) is 10 units.

Given the distance PQ = 10 units
By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
PQ = √{(9 – x)2 + (10 – 4)2}
10 = √{(9 – x)2 + (6)2}
10 = √{81 + x2 – 18x + 36}
10 = √{117 + x2 – 18x}
Squaring both sides we get
⇒ 100 = 117 + x2 – 18x
⇒ x2 – 18x + 17x = 0
⇒ (x – 1)(x – 17)
⇒ × = 1 or × = 17


Q.13. If the point A(x, 2) is equidistant from the points B(8, – 2) and C(2, – 2), find the value of x. Also, find the length of AB.

Given that point A is equidistant from points B and C , so AB = AC
By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AB = √{(8 – x)2 + (– 2 – 2)2}
= √{(8 – x)2 + (– 4)2}
= √{64 + x2 – 16x + 16}
= √{80 + x2 – 16x}
AC = √{(2 – x)+ (– 2 – 2)2}
= √{(2 – x)2 + (4)2}
= √{4 + x2 – 4x + 16}
= √{20 + x2 – 4x}
Now, AB = AC
Squaring both sides, we get,
(80 + x2 – 16x) = (20 + x2 – 4x)
60 = 12x
x = 5
⇒ AB = √{80 + x2 – 16x}
⇒ AB = √(80 + 52 – 16× 5)
= 5 units


Q.14. If the point A(0, 2) is equidistant from the points B(3, p) and C(p, 5), find the value of p. Also, find the length of AB.

Given that point A is equidistant from points B and C, so AB = AC
By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AB = √{(3 – 0)2 + (p – 2)2}
= √{(3)2 + (p – 2)2}
= √{9 + p2 – 4p + 4}
⇒ AB = √{13 + p2 – 4p}
AC = √{(p – 0)2 + (5 – 2)2}
= √{(p)2 + (3)2}
⇒ AB = √{9 + p2}
Now, AB = AC
Squaring both sides, we get,
(13 + p2 – 4p) = (9 + p2)
⇒ 4 = 4p
⇒ p = 1
Now, AB = √{13 + p2 – 4p}
⇒ AB = √(13 + 1 – 4)
= √10 units
Therefore, the distance of AB = √10 units.


Q.15. Find the point on the x – axis which is equidistant from the points (2, – 5) and (– 2, 9).

Let the point be X(x,0) and the other two points are given as A(2, – 5) and B(– 2,9)
Given XA = XB
By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
XA = √{(2 – x)2 + (– 5 – 0)2}
= √{(2 – x)+ (– 5)2}
= √{4 + x2 – 4x + 25}
⇒ XA = √{29 + x2 – 4x}
XB = √{(– 2 – x)2 + (9 – 0)2}
= √{(– 2 – x)2 + (9)2}
= √{4 + x2 + 4x + 81}
⇒ XB = √{85 + x2 + 4x}
Now since
XA = XB
Squaring both sides, we get,
(29 + x2 – 4x) = (85 + x2 + 4x)
56 = – 8x
x = – 7
The point on × axis is (– 7, 0).


Q.16. Find points on the x – axis, each of which is at a distance of 10 units from the point A(11, – 8).

Let the point be X(x, 0)
XA = 10
By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
XA = √{(11 – x)2 + (– 8 – 0)2}
10 = √{(11 – x)2 + (– 8)2}
10 = √{121 + x2 – 22x + 64}
10 = √{185 + x2 – 22x}
Squaring both sides we get
100 = (185 + x2 – 22x)
⇒ 85 + x2 – 22x = 0
⇒ x– 22x + 85 = 0
⇒ (x – 5)(x – 17)
⇒ × = 5 or × = 17
The points are (5, 0) and (17, 0).


Q.17. Find the point on the y – axis which is equidistant from the points A(6, 5) and B(– 4, 3).

Let the point be Y(0,y) and the other two points given as A(6,5) and B(– 4,3)
Given YA = YB
By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
YA = √{(6 – 0)2 + (5 – y)2}
= √{(6)2 + (5 – y)2}
= √{36 + 25 + y2 – 10y}
⇒ YA = √{61 + y2 – 10y}
YB = √{(– 4 – 0)2 + (3 – y)2}
= √{(– 4)+ (9 + y– 6y)}
= √{16 + 9 + y2 – 6y}
⇒ YB = √{25 + y2 – 6y}
Now, YA = YB
Squaring both sides, we get,
(61 + y2 – 10y) = (25 + y2 – 6y)
36 = 4y
⇒ y = 9
The point is (0, 9).


Q.18. If the point P(x, y) is equidistant from the points A(5, 1) and B(– 1, 5), prove that 3x = 2y.

The point P(x, y) is equidistant from the points A(5, 1) and B(– 1, 5), means PA = PB
By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
PA = √{(5 – x)2 + (1 – y)2}
= √{(25 + x2 – 10x) + (1 + y2 – 2y)}
⇒ PA = √{26 + x2 – 10x + y2 – 2y}
PB = √{(– 1 – x)2 + (5 – y)2}
= √{(1 + x2 + 2x + 25 + y2 – 10y)}
⇒ PB = √{(26 + x2 + 2x + y2 – 10y)}
Now, PA = PB
Squaring both sides, we get
26 + x2 – 10x + y2 – 2y = 26 + x2 + 2x + y2 – 10y
⇒ 12x = 8y
⇒ 3x = 2y
Hence proved.


Q.19. If P(x, y) is a point equidistant from the points A(6, – 1) and B(2, 3), show that × – y = 3.

By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
PA = √{(6 – x)2 + (– 1 – y)2}
= √{(36 + x2 –12x) + (1 + y2 + 2y)}
⇒ PA = √{37 + x2 – 12x + y2 + 2y}
PB = √{(2 – x)2 + (3 – y)2}
= √{(4 + x2 – 4x + 9 + y2 – 6y)}
⇒ PB = √{(13 + x2 – 4x + y2 – 6y)}
Given: PA = PB
Squaring both sides, we get
(37 + x2 – 12x + y2 + 2y) = (13 + x2 – 4x + y2 – 6y)
24 = 8x – 8y
Dividing by 8
x – y = 3
Hence proved.


Q.20. Find the coordinates of the point equidistant from three given points A(5, 3), B(5, – 5) and C(1, – 5).

Let the point be P(x, y), then since all three points are equidistant therefore
PA = PB = PC
By distance formula, as shown below:
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
We have, PA = √{(5 – x)2 + (3 – y)2}
= √{25 + x2 – 10x + 9 + y2 – 6y}
⇒ PA = √{34 + x2 – 10x + y2 – 6y}
PB = √{(5 – x)2 + (– 5 – y)2}
= √{25 + x2 – 10x + 25 + y2 + 10y}
⇒ PB = √{50 + x2 – 10x + y2 + 10y}
PC = √{(1 – x)2 + (– 5 – y)2}
= √{1 + x2 – 2x + 25 + y2 + 10y}
⇒ PC = √{26 + x2 – 2x + y2 + 10y}
Squaring PA and PB we get
{34 + x2 – 10x + y2 – 6y} = {50 + x2 – 10x + y2 + 10y}
⇒ – 16 = 16y
⇒ y = – 1
Squaring PB and PC we get
{50 + x2 – 2x + y+ 10y} = {26 + x2 – 10x + y2 + 10y}
24 = – 8x
x = – 3
P(– 3, – 1)

OA = √{(4 – 2)2 + (3 – 3)2}
= √4
= 2
OB = √{(x – 2)2 + 4 }
= √{x2 + 4 – 4x + 4}
√{ 8 + x2 – 4x}
OA= OB2
4 = 8 + x2 – 4x
⇒ x2 – 4x + 4 = 0
⇒ x2 – 2x – 2x + 4 = 0
⇒ x(x– 2) – 2(x – 2) = 0
⇒ (x – 2) (x – 2) = 0
x = 2


Q.22. If the point C(– 2, 3) is equidistant from the points A(3, – 1) and B(x, 8), find the values of x. Also, find the distance BC.

By distance formula
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AC = √{(3 – (– 2))2 + (– 1 – 3)2}
= √{(5)2 + (– 4)2}
= √{25 + 16}
= √{41}
BC = √{(x –(– 2))2 + (8 – 3)2}
= √{(x + 2)2 + 52 }
= √{x2 + 4 + 2x + 25}
= √{x+ 2x + 29}
AB = BC
√{x2 + 2x + 29} = √{41}
× = 2 or × = – 6
Since, AB = BC
BC = √41 units


Q.23. If the point P(2, 2) is equidistant from the points A(– 2, k) and B(– 2k, – 3), find k. Also, find the length of AP.

AP = BP
AP = √{(– 2 – 2)2 + (k – 2)2}
= √{16 + k2 – 4k + 4}
= √(k2 – 2k + 20)
BP = √{(– 2k – 2)+ (– 3 – 2)2}
= √{4k2 + 8k + 4 + 25}
= √(4k2 + 8k + 29)
Squaring AP and BP and equating them we get
k2 – 4k + 20 = 4k2 + 8k + 29
3k2 + 12k + 9 = 0
(k + 3)(k + 1) = 0
⇒ k = – 3
⇒ AP = √41units
Or k = – 1
⇒ AP = 5 units


Q.24. If the point (x, y) is equidistant from the points (a + b, b – a) and (a – b, a + b), prove that bx = ay.

Let point P(x,y) , A(a + b,a – b) , B(a – b,a + b)
Then AP = BP
AP = √{((a + b) – x)2 + ((a – b) – y)2}
= √{(a + b)2 + x2 – 2(a + b)x + (a – b)2 + y– 2(a – b)y}
= √(a2 + b2 + 2ab + x2 – 2(a + b)x + b+ a2 – 2ab + y2 – 2(a – b)y)
BP = √{((a – b) – x)+ ((a + b) – y)2}
= √{(a – b)2 + x2 – 2(a – b)x + (a + b)+ y2 – 2(a + b)y}
= √(a2 + b2 – 2ab + x2 – 2(a – b)x + b2 + a2 + 2ab + y2 – 2(a + b)y)
Squaring and Equating both we get
a2 + b2 + 2ab + x2 – 2(a + b)x + b2 + a2 – 2ab + y2 – 2(a – b)y = a2 + b– 2ab + x– 2(a – b)x + b2 + a2 + 2ab + y2 – 2(a + b)y
– 2(a + b)x – 2(a – b)y = – 2(a – b)x – 2(a + b)y
ax + bx + ay – by = ax – bx + ay + by
Hence
bx = ay


Q.25. Using the distance formula, show that the given points are collinear:
(i) (1, – 1), (5, 2) and (9, 5)
(ii) (6, 9), (0, 1) and (– 6, – 7)
(iii) (– 1, – 1), (2, 3) and (8, 11)
(iv) (– 2, 5), (0, 1) and (2, – 3).

Three or more points are collinear, if slope of any two pairs of points is same. With three points A, B and C if Slope of AB = slope of BC = slope of AC
then A, B and C are collinear points.
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
Slope of any two points is given by:
(y2 – y1)/(x2 – x1).
(i) Slope of AB = (2 – (– 1))/(5 – 1) = 3/4
Slope of BC = (5 – 2)/(9 – 5) = 3/4
Slope of AB = slope of BC
Hence collinear.
(ii) Slope of AB = (1 – 9)/(0 – 6) = 8/6 = 4/3
Slope of BC = (– 6 – 0)/(– 7 – 1) = 6/6 = 1
Slope of AC = (– 7 – 9)/(– 6 – 6) = – 16/ – 12 = 4/3
Slope of AB = slope of AC
Hence collinear.
(iii) Slope of AB = ((3 – (– 1))/((2 – (– 1)) = 4/3
Slope of BC = (11 – 2)/(8 – 3) = 9/5 = 1
Slope of AC = ((11 – (– 1))/((8 – (– 1)) = 12/9 = 4/3
Slope of AB = slope of AC
Hence collinear.
(iv) Slope of AB = (1 – 5)/((0 – (– 2)) = – 4/2 = – 2
Slope of BC = (– 3 – 1)/(2 – 0) = – 4/2 = – 2
Slope of AB = slope of AB
Hence collinear.


Q.26. Show that the points A(7, 10), B(– 2, 5) and C(3, – 4) are the vertices of an isosceles right triangle.

In an isosceles triangle any two sides are equal.
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AB = √{(– 2 – 7)2 + (5 – 10)2}

= √{(– 9)2 + (– 5)2}
= √{81 + 25}
= √{106}
BC = √{(– 4 – 5)2 + (3 – (– 2))2}
= √{(– 9)2 + (5)2}
= √{81 + 25}
= √{106}
AB = BC
∴ It is an isosceles triangle.


Q.27. Show that the points A(3, 0), B(6, 4) and C(– 1, 3) are the vertices of an isosceles right triangle.

In an isosceles triangle any two sides are equal.
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AB = √{(6 – 3)2 + (4 – 0)2}
= √{(3)2 + (4)2}
= √{9 + 16}
= √{25} = 5 units
BC = √{(– 1 – 6)2 + (3 – 4)2}
= √{(– 7)2 + (– 1)2}
= √{49 + 1}
= √{50}
AC = √{(– 1 – 3)2 + (3 – 0)2}
= √{(– 4)2 + (3)2}
= √{16 + 9}
= √{25} = 5 units
AB = AC
∴ It is an isosceles triangle.


Q.28. If A(5, 2), B(2, – 2) and C(– 2, t) are the vertices of a right triangle with ∠B = 90°, then find the value of t.

A(5, 2), B(2, – 2) and C(– 2, t) are the vertices of a right triangle with ∠B = 90°
The value of t.
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
From the fig we have ∠B = 90°,
so by Pythagoras theorem we have AC2 = AB2 + BC2
AC= (– 2 – 5)2 + (t – 2)2
= (– 7)2 + t2 + 4 – 2t
= 49 +t+ 4 - 2t
= 53 + t2 – 2t
AB2 = (2 – 5)+ (– 2 – 2)2
=(-3)2 + (–4)2
= 9 + 16
= 25
BC2 = (– 2 – 2)2 + (t + 2)2
= (– 4)2 + (t + 2)2
= 16 + t2 + 4 + 2t
= 20 + t2 + 2t
AB+ BC2 = 25 + 20 + t2 + 2t
= 45 + t2 + 2t
AC2 = 53 + t– 2t
⇒ 53 + t2 – 2t = 45 + t2 + 2t
⇒ 53 - 45 = 4t
⇒ 8 = 4t
⇒ t = 2


Q.29. Prove that the points A(2, 4), B(2, 6) and C(2 + √3, 5) are the vertices of an equilateral triangle.

For an equilateral triangle
AB = BC = AC
RS Aggarwal Solutions: Coordinate Geometry- 1 | RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Mathematics
AB = √{(6 – 4)2 + (2 – 2)2}
= √{(2)2 + 0}
= √{4 + 0}
= √{4} = 2 units
BC = √{(2 + √3 – 2)+ (5 – 6)2}
= √{3 + (– 1)2}
= √{4} = 2 units
AC = √{(2 + √3 – 2)2 + (5 – 4)2}
= √{3 + (– 1)2}
= √{4} = 2 units
Hence , AB = BC = AC
∴ ABC is an equilateral triangle.


Q.30. Show that the points (– 3, – 3), (3, 3) and (– 3√3, 3√3) are the vertices of an equilateral triangle.

Let the points be 3 (–3, –3), B (3, 3) and C (–3√3, 3√3)
Then, AB = √(3 + 3)2+( 3 + 3)2
=√(-6)2+(6)2
= √36+36
= √72
= 3√8
BC=√(-3√3+3)2+(3√3-3)2
= √(1-√3)232+(√3+1)232
= 3√[ 1+3-2√3+3+1+2√3]
= 3√8
CA = √(-3√3-3)2+(3√3-3)2
= √(-√3-1)232+(√3-1)232
= 3√[3+1+2√3+3+1-2√3]
= 3√8
∵ AB = BC = CA
⇒ A, B, C are the vertices of an equilateral triangle.

BC = √{(9 – 3)2 + (8 – 0)2}
= √{(6)2 + (8)2}
= √{36 + 64}
= √{100} = 10 units
AC = √{(9 – (– 5))2 + (8 – 6)2}
= √{(14)2 + (2)2}
= √{196 + 4}
= √{200}
For the right angled triangle
AC2 = AB+ BC2
AC2 = 200
AB2 + AC= 100 + 100 = 200
