Question 3.

Find the ratio in which point T(-1, 6)divides the line segment joining the pointsP(-3, 10) and Q(6, -8).

A point P(x,y) divides the line formed by points (a,b) and (c,d) in the ratio of m:n, then the coordinates of the point P is given by

and

In the given question,

Let the point T divide the line PQ in the ratio m:n

Here x = -1 and y = 6

...(1)

.... (2)

Simplifying (1) we get,

-m-n = -3n + 6m

2n = 7m

Simplifying (2) we get,

6m + 6n = 10n-8m

14m = 4n

From both we get

Hence the point T divides PQ in the ratio 2:7

Question 4.

Point P is the centre of the circle and AB is a diameter. Find the coordinates ofpoint B if coordinates of point A and P are (2, -3) and (-2, 0) respectively.

According to the mid point theorem the coordinates of the point P(x,y) dividing the line formed by A(a,b) and B(c,d) is given by:

In the given question A = (1,-3) and midpoint P is (-2,0).

Let coordinates of B be (c,d)

Then,

And

Solving for c and d, we get

-4 = 2 + c

c = -6

d = 3

Hence the coordinates of point B are (-6,3).

Question 5.

Find the ratio in which point P(k, 7) divides the segment joining A(8, 9) andB(1, 2). Also find k.

A point P(x,y) divides the line formed by points (a,b) and (c,d) in the ratio of m:n, then the coordinates of the point P is given by

and

In the given question,

Let the point P divide AB is the ratio 1:k

Y coordinate of P

Simplifying

7k + 7 = 9k + 2

2k = 5

k =

Therefore point P divides AB in the ratio 2:5

Question 6.

According to the mid point theorem the coordinates of the point P(x,y) dividing the line formed by A(a,b) and B(c,d) is given by:

The coordinates of midpoint(x,y) are

let The points of trisection of a given line AB be P and Q

Then the ratio AP:PQ:QB = 1:1:1

Hence we get AP:PB = 1:2

And AQ:QB = 2:1

A point P(x,y) divides the line formed by points (a,b) and (c,d) in the ratio of m:n, then the coordinates of the point P is given by
