Coordinate Geometry Class 10 Worksheet Maths Chapter 7

Multiple choice Questions

Q1: Find the centroid of the triangle XYZ whose vertices are X (3, - 5) Y (- 3, 4) and Z (9, - 2).
(a) (0, 0)
(b) (3, 1)
(c) (2, 3)
(d) (3,-1)

Ans: (d)
Centroid of the triangle is given by

Q2: If the mid-point of the line segment joining the points A (3, 4) and B (a, 4) is P (x, y) and x + y - 20 = 0, then find the value of a
(a) 0
(b) 1
(c) 40
(d) 45
Ans:
(d)
mid point (3+a)/2, 4
Now
(3+a)/2 -4 -20 = 0
3 + a = 48
a = 45

Q3: Determine the ratio in which the line 2x + y - 4 = 0 divides the line segment joining the points A (2, - 2) and B (3, 7).
(a) 2:9
(b) 1:9
(c)1:2
(d) 2:3
Ans: (a)

Q4: The coordinates of one end point of a diameter of a circle are (4, -1) and the co-ordinates of the centre of the circle are (1, -3). Find the co- ordinates of the other end of the diameter.
Ans:

Q5: If the mid- point of the line joining (3, 4) and (k, 7) is (x, y) and 2x + 2y + 1 = 0 find the value of k.
Ans:

Q6: Find the centre of the circle passing through (6, -6), (3, -7) and (3, 3)
Ans:

Q7: Prove that the points (3, 0), (4, 5), (-1, 4) and (-2, -1), taken in order, form a rhombus. Also, find its area.
Ans: The given points are P(3, 0), Q(4, 5), R(-1, 4) and S(-2, -1).We have

Therefore Sides are equal
PQ = QR = RS = SP = √26
and Diagonal are not equal
PR ≠ QS
Hence PQRS is a rhombus but not a square.
Now Area of rhombus PQRS is given by
A = 1/2 D1 × D2
Where D1 and D2 are diagonals
So
A = 1/2 4√2 × 6√2 = 24sq.units

Q8: Two opposite vertices of a square are (-1, 2) and (3, 2). Find the co-ordinates of other two vertices.
Ans: Let ABCD is the square and A (-1,2) and C(3,2). Lets us assume the coordinate of B(x,y)
Now Sides are equal in square, Therefore
AB = BC

Putting the value of x from (1), we get
[(1 + 1)2 + (y − 2)2] = 8
Solving it ,we get
y2 − 4 y = 0
Solving this quadratic equation, we get y = 0 or 4
So coordinates of the other vertices are (1, 0) and (1, 4)

Q9: Find a point on y - axis which is equidistant from the points (5, -2) and (-3, 2).
Ans:
Let the point on y axis is P(0,y) which is equidistant from the points A(5,-2) and B(-3,2). Then
PA = PB

Q10: If the coordinates of the mid points of the sides of a triangle are (1, 2), (0, -1) and (2, -1). Find the coordinates of its vertices.
