**Q1.Write equations for the x and y axis.**

Ans. Since ordinate(y coordinate) of every point on x axis is 0,therefore the equation of x axis is y=0

Since ordinate (y coordinate) of every point on y axis is 0,therefore the equation of y axis is x =0

**Q2.Find the equation of the line which passes through the point (-4,3) with slope 1/2.**

Ans. The equation of a line which passes through (x1,y1) with slope m is given by

y – y1 = m(x -x1)

Here x1 =-4, y1 = 3 and m = 1/2

Putting these values in standard equation ,we get

y – 3 =( 1/2)[x -(-4)]

y -3 = (1/2) (x +4)

2y – 6 = x + 4

2y -x = 10

Hence required equation of the line is 2y -x =10

**Q3. Find the equation of the line which passes through the origin(0,0) with slope m.**

Ans.The equation of the line passes through the point(x1,y1) with slope m is given by

y -y1 = m(x – x1)

Here x1 = 0 ,y1 = 0 and m =m

y -0 = m(x -0)

y = mx

mx -y = 0

The required equation is mx -y = 0

**Solutions of the question 1-question 3**

**Q4.Find the equation of the line which passes through (2,2√3) and is inclined with the x axis at an angle of 75°.**

Ans.The equation of the line passes through the point(x1,y1) with slope m is given by

y -y1 = m(x – x1)

Here x1 = 2,y1 = 2√3 and m =tan 75°

tan 75°= tan (45 +30) = (tan 45 + tan30)/(1-tan 45 tan 30) = (1 + 1/√3)/(1 -1/√3) = (√3+1)/(√3-1)

∴ m = (√3+1)/(√3 -1)

Therefore putting the value of m in standard equation

y – 2√3 = (√3 +1)/(√3 -1)[x – 2]

(y -2√3)(√3 -1) = (√3+1)(x -2)

y√3 – y -6 +2√3 =x√3 -2√3+x -2

(√3 -1)y -(√3 -1)x =6-2 -2√3-2√3

(√3 -1)y -(√3 -1)x =4 -4√3

(√3 -1)x -(√3 -1)y=4√3-4

(√3 -1)x -(√3 -1)y=4(√3-1)

Hence the required equation passing through the given point is (√3 -1)x -(√3 -1)y=4(√3-1)

**Q5.Find the equation of the line which intersects the x axis at a distance of 3 units to the left of origin with slope -2.**

Ans. The coordinates of the point 3 units to the left of origin is (-3,0)

The slope of the line which is passing through (-3,0) is given = -2

The equation of the line passes through the point(x1,y1) with slope m is given by

y -y1 = m(x – x1)

Here x1 = -3,y1 = 0 and m= -2

y-0 = -2[x -(-3)]

y = -2x -6

2x +y +6 =0

Hence required equation is 2x +y +6 =0

**Q6.Find the equation of the line which intersects the y axis at a distance of 2 units above the origin and makes an angle of 30° with the positive direction of the x axis.**

Ans.The point on y axis which is at a distance of 2 units above the origin is (0,2)

The slope(m) of the line which is passing through (0,2) is, m = tan 30°=1/√3

The equation of the line passes through the point(x1,y1) with slope m is given by

The equation of the line passes through the point(x1,y1) with slope m is given by

y -y1 = m(x – x1)

Here x1 = 0,y1 = 2 and m= 1/√3

y -2 = (1/√3)(x – 0)

y -2 = x/√3

y√3 -2√3 = x

x -y√3 +2√3 =0

**Q7.Find the equation of the line which passes through the points (–1, 1) and (2, – 4)**

Ans. The given points are (-1,1) and (2,-4)

The equation of the line passing through the points (x1,y1) with slope m is given by

y -y1 =m (x -x1), where x1 =-1,y1=1 and x2 =2,y2 =-4

The slope m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) =(-4-1)/(2+1) = -5/3

∴ y -1 = (-5/3)(x +1)

3y -3 = -5(x +1)

3y -3 =-5x -5

5x +3y +2 = 0

Hence the required equation is 5x +3y +2 = 0

**Q8. Find the equation of the line which is at a perpendicular distance of 5 units from the origin and the angle made by the perpendicular with the positive x-axis is 30**^{o}.

Ans.The perpendicular distance(p) of the line from the origin = 5 units

Angle made by the perpendicular(w) with the positive x axis = 30°

The equation of a line which is at a perpendicular distance (p) from the origin and the angle(w) made by the perpendicular with the positive x -axis is given by

x cos ω + y sin ω = p

Putting the value ω = 30°

x cos 30° + y sin 30° = 5

x(√3/2) + y (1/2) = 5

x√3 + y = 10

x√3 + y – 10=0

Hence the required equation which is described in the question is

x√3 + y -10 = 0

**Q9. The vertices of the ΔPQR are P(2,1), Q(-2,3) and R(4,5). Find equation of the median through the vertex R.**

Ans. The vertices of the ΔPQR are P(2,1), Q(-2,3) and R(4,5) and median through the vertex are shown below

The coordinates of S are [(-2+2)/2, (3+1)/2] = (0,2)

y -y1 =m (x -x1), where x1 =4,y1=5 and x2 =-2,y2 =3

The slope(m) of the median (RS) of the ΔPQR is = (5-2)/(4-0) = 3/4

y -5=(3/4) (x -4)

4y -20 = 3x -12

3x -4y -12 +20 = 0

3x -4y + 8 = 0

Hence the required equation of the median RS of the ΔPQR is 3x -4y + 8 = 0

**Q10.****Find the equation of the line passing through (–3, 5) and perpendicular to the line through the points (2, 5) and (–3, 6).**

Ans. Since two lines are perpendicular to each other when the product of their slopes

(m_{1} and m_{2}) is

m_{1}m_{2}=-1

Let slope of the line which is passing through the given points (-3,5) =**m _{1 }**and slope of the line joining two given points (2,5) and (-3,6)=

**m**

_{2}We know slope(m) of the line which joins two points (x_{1},y_{1}) and (x_{2},y_{2}) is given by

m =(y_{2}-y_{1})/(x_{2}-x_{1})

m_{2}= (6-5)/(-3-2) = -1/5

m_{1}(-1/5)=-1

m_{1}=-1×-5 = 5

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (x_{1},y_{1}) with slope m is given by

y – y_{1}=m (x -x_{1})

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (-3,5) with slope 5 is given by

y -5 = 5(x +3)

y -5 = 5x +15

5x -y +20 = 0

Hence required equation of the line is 5x – y +20 =0

**Q11.A line perpendicular to the line segment joining the points (1, 0) and (2, 3) divides it in the ratio 1: n. Find the equation of the line. **

Ans. Let the coordinates of the point of intersection of a perpendicular line and line segment joining two points (x_{1},y_{1}) and (x_{2},y_{2}) are (x,y)

x = (kx_{2}+x_{1})/(k+1) and y=(ky_{2}+y_{1})/(k+1) where k is the ratio by which the point(x,y) divides the line segment

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (x_{1},y_{1}) with slope m is given by

y – y_{1}=m (x -x_{1})

Since two lines are perpendicular to each other when the product of their slopes

(m_{1} and m_{2}) is

m_{1}m_{2}=-1 ,where m_{2}=(y_{2}-y_{1})/(x_{2}-x_{1})

∴m_{1 }= (x_{1}-x_{2})/(y_{2}-y_{1})=(1-2)/(3-0) = -1/3

Therefore the equation of perpendicular line passes through [(n+2)/(n+1), 3/(n+1)] is given as

y -3/(n+1) = -1/3[x -(n+2)/(n+1)]

3y(n+1) -9= -[x(n +1)-(n+2)]

3y(n+1) -9 = -x(n+1) + n+2

3y(n+1) +x(n+1) = n+11

x(n+1) + 3y(n+1) -n -11 =0

**Hence the required equation is x(n+1) + 3y(n+1) -n -11 =0**

**Q12.Find the equation of a line that cuts off equal intercepts on the coordinate axes and passes through the point (2, 3).**

Ans. The equation of the line with x axis intercept a and y axis intercept b is given as

x/a + y/b = 1

Since it is given to us a = b,so putting the value of a and x =2,y = 3

2/b + 3/b = 1

5/b =1

b = 5

Also a = 5

Putting the values of a and b in the standard intercepts form of the equation

x/5 + y/5 = 1

x + y = 5

Hence the required equation is x+y =5

**Q13.Find equation of the line passing through the point (2, 2) and cutting off intercepts on the axes whose sum is 9.**

Ans.The equation of the line with x axis intercept a and y axis intercept b is given as

x/a + y/b = 1

The sum of the x intercept and y intercept given to us is a +b=9 so putting the value of a=9-b in the equation

x/(9-b)+ y/b = 1

Since the line is passing through (2,2)

2/(9-b)+ 2/b = 1

(2b + 18 -2b)/[b(9-b)] =1

18 = b(9- b)

9b -b² = 18

b²-9b + 18 = 0

b²-6b -3b + 18 =0

b(b -6) -3(b -6) = 0

(b -6)(b-3) = 0

b = 6,3

If b=6 then a = 9 -6 = 3 and if b= 3 then a = 9- 3 =6

Putting the values of a and b in the standard intercepts form of the equation

x/3 + y/6 = 1 or x/6 + y/3 =1

2x + y = 6 or x + 2y = 6

Hence the required equations are 2x + y = 6 or x + 2y = 6

**Q14.Find the equation of the line through the point (0, 2) making an angle 2π/3 with the positive x-axis. Also, find the equation of line parallel to it and crossing the y-axis at a distance of 2 units below the origin.**

Ans.The line described in the question is passing through the point (0,2) making an angle 2π/3 with the positive x axis means slope of the line,m = tan 2π/3

m = tan 2π/3 = tan (π – π/3) = -tan π/3= -√3 [ since tan 2π/3 lies in second quadrant where tan is negative)

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (x_{1},y_{1}) with slope m is given by

y – y_{1}=m (x -x_{1})

Therefore equation of the line passes through (0,2) is

y -2 = -√3(x -0)

y -2 = -x√3

x√3 + y -2 = 0

The second line which is parallel to the previous line crossing the y-axis at a distance of 2 units below the origin

Therefore coordinates of the point where the line crosses the y axis are (0,-2)

We know the slopes of two parallel lines are equal,so the slope of the line,m =-√3

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (x_{1},y_{1}) with slope m is given by

y – y_{1}=m (x -x_{1})

Therefore equation of the line passes through (0,-2) is

y +2 = -√3(x -0)

y +2 =-x√3

x√3 +y +2 =0

**Hence equation of the line is x√3 + y -2 = 0 and equation of the line parallel to it is x√3 +y +2 =0**

**Q15.The perpendicular from the origin to a line meets it at the point (–2, 9), find the equation of the line.**

Ans. We are given the perpendicular from the origin to a line that meets it at the point (–2, 9)

So, perpendicular on the line from the origin passes through (0,0) and (-2,9)

Therefore the slope of the perpendicular line,m is

m = (9-0)/(-2-0) = -9/-2 = 9/2

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (x_{1},y_{1}) with slope m is given by

y – y_{1}=m (x -x_{1})

It is known to us that the product of the slopes of two perpendicular lines is = -1

m ×9/2 = -1

m = -2/9

Therefore equation of the line passes through (-2,9) is

y +2 = -2/9(x -0)

9y +18 =-2x

2x + 9y +18 = 0

**Hence the required equation of the line is 2x + 9y +18 = 0**

**Q16.The length L (in centimetre) of a copper rod is a linear function of its Celsius temperature C. In an experiment, if L = 124.942 when C = 20 and L= 125.134 when C = 110, express L in terms of C.**

Ans. It is given to us that length, L is the function of Celsius, C

In an experiment, if L = 124.942 when C = 20 and L= 125.134 when C = 110

If L is shown along Y-axis and C is shown along X-axis, then we get two points in the XY plane (20,124.942) and (110,125.134)

Express L in terms of C, means we have to find out the equation of the line joining two points (20,124.942) and (110,125.134)

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (x_{1},y_{1}) with slope m is given by

y – y_{1}=m (x -x_{1})

m = (125.134 -124.942)/(110-20)=0.192/90

Putting the values of (20,124.942) in place of (x_{1},y_{1}) [hint :you can put (110,125.134) also]

90y -11244.78 = 0.192x -3.84

90y = 0.192x -3.84 +11244.78

90y = 0.192x +11240.94

Replacing y =L and x = C

90L = 0.192 C + 11240.94

Hence L is expressed in terms of the C by the relation

**Q17**.**The owner of a milk store finds that, he can sell 980 litres of milk each week at Rs. 14/litre and 1220 litres of milk each week at Rs. 16/litre. Assuming a linear relationship between selling price and demand, how many litres could he sell weekly at Rs. 17/litre?**

Ans.Let the demand is shown by x and selling price is shown by y axis

Therefore in XY plane there are two points (980,14) and (1220,16)

The slope,m of the line joining two points (980,14) and (1220,16)

m = (16 -14)/(1220 -980) = 2/240 = 1/120

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (x_{1},y_{1}) with slope m is given by

y – y_{1}=m (x -x_{1})

Putting the values (x_{1},y_{1}) =(980,14) and m =1/120

120y -1680 = x -980

x -120y =980 -1680

x -120y =-700

The relationship between demand(x) and selling price(y) is x -120y =700

If selling price(y) is Rs 17/litre ,so putting the value of y =17 in the equation

x-120×17 =-700

x-2040=-700

x = -700 + 2040 =1340

Hence the owner of the milk can sell 1340 litres at the selling price of Rs 17/litre

**Q18.P (a, b) is the mid-point of a line segment between axes. Show that equation of the line is x/a + y/b = 2**

Ans. The given point P(a,b) is the mid point of a line segment between axes

Let the line is AB which intersects the Y-axis at A and X-axis at B, the coordinates of A is (0,y) and coordinates of B are (x,0)

(0 +x)/2 =a and (y+0)/2 = b

x/2 =a and y/2 = b

x = 2a and y =2b

So, x-intercept is 2a and y-intercept is 2b

If x-intercept is a and y-intercept is b then the equation of the line is given by

x/a + y/b =1

Substituting a and b by 2a and 2b,we get required equation

x/2a + y/2b =1

x/a + y/b = 2

Hence proved

** Q19.Point R (h, k) divides a line segment between the axes in the ratio 1: 2. Find the equation of the line.**

Ans. It is given to us that point (h,k) divides a line segment between the X and Y-axis in the ratio of 1: 2

The coordinates of the points the line intersects y-axis is (0,y) and x-axis is (x,0)

According to section formula

x = 3h and y = 3k/2

Therefore the line is passing through the two points (0,3k/2) and (3h,0)

Slope of the line ,m = (0-3k/2)/(3h -0) = -3k/6h = -k/2h

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (x_{1},y_{1}) with slope m is given by

y – y_{1}=m (x -x_{1})

Therefore equation of the line passes through (3h,0)

y -0 = (-k/2h)(x – 3h)

y = (-k/2h) (x -3h)

2hy = -kx +3hk

2hy + kx -3hk =0

**Q20.By using the concept of the equation of a line, prove that the three points (3, 0), (– 2, – 2) and (8, 2) are collinear.**

Ans.Three given points are (3,0),(-2,-2) and (8,2)

The equation of the line which is passing through a point (x_{1},y_{1}) with slope m is given by

y – y_{1}=m (x -x_{1})

The slope of the line segment joining the two points (3,0) and (-2,-2) is

m=(-2-0)/(-2-3) = -2/-5 = 2/5

Putting the values for (x_{1},y_{1}) =(3,0) and m =2/5

y – 0 = (2/5)(x -3)

5y = 2x -6

2x -5y -6 =0

For three points to be collinear the equation should satisfy the third point (8,2)

2×8 -5×2 -6 =0

16-10 -6 =0

16 -16 =0

0=0 ⇒LHS = RHS

Since (8,2) satisfy the equation of the line joining two points (3,0) and (-2,-2),therefore the given three points are collinear.
