**Answer:**Let P(x,0) be the point

A(2,-5) and B(-2,9)

⇒ PA =

PA = PB

PA^{2} = PB^{2}

(x-2)^{2} + (-5)^{2} = (x + 2)^{2} + 9^{2}

x^{2}-4x + 4 + 25 = x^{2} + 4x + 4 + 81

8x = -56

X = 7

Point is (-7,0)

**Question 16.**If the distance between two points (x, 7) and (1, 15) is 10, find the value of x.

AB = 10

AB^{2} = 10^{2}

⇒ (1-x)^{2} + 8^{2} = 10^{2}

⇒ x^{2}-2x-35 = 0

⇒ (x-7)(x + 5) = 0

⇒ X = 7 or x = -5

**Question 17.**Find the value of y for which the distance between the points P(2, -3) and Q(10, y) is 10 units.

**Answer:**3 or -9

Let P(2,-3) and Q(10,y)

be the point

PQ^{2} = 10^{2}

⇒ (y + 3)^{2} + 8^{2} = 10^{2}

y^{2} + 6y + 9 + 64 = 100

y^{2} + 6y-27 = 0

⇒ (y + 9)(y-3) = 0

⇒ y = 9 or y = -3

**Question 18.**Find the radius of the circle whose centre is (3, 2) and passes through (-5, 6).

**Answer:**Let P be center such that P(3,2) and Q be point on circumference Q(-5,6)

⇒ AB =

AB =

AB = 5

⇒ BC =

BC =

BC = 10

⇒ AC =

AC =

AC = 15

Largest side is AC = 15 which is equal to Sum of other two sides AB and BC i.e. (10 + 5 = 15)

∴ triangle cannot be drawn infact the points are collinear

**Question 20.**Find a relation between x and y such that the point (x, y) is equidistant from the points (-2, 8) and (-3, -5)

**Answer:**Let P(x,y) be the point

A(-2,8) and B(-3,-5)

⇒ PA =

⇒ PB =

PA = PB

PA^{2} = PB^{2}

(x + 2)^{2} + (8-y)^{2} = (x + 3)^{2} + (y + 5)^{2}

x^{2} + 4x + 4 + 64 -16y + y^{2} = x^{2} + 6x + 9 + y^{2} + 10y + 25

-2x-26y = -34

AB^{2} = 10^{2}

⇒ (1-x)^{2} + 8^{2} = 10^{2}

⇒ x^{2}-2x + 1 + 64 = 100

⇒ x^{2}-2x-35 = 0

⇒ (x-7)(x + 5) = 0

⇒ X = 7 or x = -5

**Question 17.**

Find the value of y for which the distance between the points P(2, -3) and Q(10, y) is 10 units.

**Answer:**

3 or -9

Let P(2,-3) and Q(10,y)

be the point

PQ^{2} = 10^{2}

⇒ (y + 3)^{2} + 8^{2} = 10^{2}

y^{2} + 6y + 9 + 64 = 100

y^{2} + 6y-27 = 0

**Question 19.**

Can you draw a triangle with vertices (1, 5), (5, 8) and (13, 14)? Give reason.

⇒ AB =

AB =

AB = 5

⇒ BC =

BC =

BC = 10

⇒ AC =

AC =

AC = 15

Largest side is AC = 15 which is equal to Sum of other two sides AB and BC i.e. (10 + 5 = 15)

∴ triangle cannot be drawn infact the points are collinear

**Question 20.**

Find a relation between x and y such that the point (x, y) is equidistant from the points (-2, 8) and (-3, -5)

**Answer:**

Let P(x,y) be the point

A(-2,8) and B(-3,-5)

⇒ PA =

⇒ PB =

PA = PB

PA^{2} = PB^{2}

(x + 2)^{2} + (8-y)^{2} = (x + 3)^{2} + (y + 5)^{2}

x^{2} + 4x + 4 + 64 -16y + y^{2} = x^{2} + 6x + 9 + y^{2} + 10y + 25

-2x-26y = -34

⇒ X + 13y = 17
