an equilateral triangle with side 2a lies along the y-axis such that the
mid-point of the base is at the origin. Find vertices of the triangle.

Maths Question 3.**

Find the distance between P(x_{1}, y

_{1}) and Q(x

_{2}, y

_{2}) when:

**(i)**PQ is parallel to the y-axis,

**(ii)**PQ is parallel to the x-axis.

**Solution:**

It is given that the coordinates of P is (x_{1}, y_{1}) and the
coordinates of Q is (x_{2}, y_{1}).

The distance between the points P(x_{1}, y_{1}) and Q(x_{2},
y_{2}) is:

**Ex 10.1 Class 11
Maths Question 4.**

Find a point on the x-axis, which is equidistant from the points (7, 6) and (3,
4).

**Solution:**

Let the point be P(x, y).

Since, the point lies on the
x-axis.

∴ y = 0, i.e., the required point is (x,
0).

Since the required point is equidistant from points A(7, 6) and B(3, 4)

⇒ PA = PB

**Ex 10.1 Class 11
Maths Question 5.**

Find the slope of a line, which passes through the origin and the mid-point of
the line segment joining the points P(0, -4) and B(8, 0).

**Solution:**

We are given the two points whose coordinates are P(0, -4) and B(8, 0).

Let A be the midpoint of PB, then

**Ex 10.1 Class 11
Maths Question 6.**

Without using the Pythagoras theorem, show that the points (4, 4), (3, 5) and
(-1, -1) are the vertices of a right angled triangle.

**Solution:**

Let A(4, 4), B(3, 5) and C(-1, -1) be the vertices of ∆ABC.

Let m_{1} and m_{2} be the slopes of AB and AC,
respectively.

**Ex 10.1 Class 11 Maths Question 7.**

Find the slope of the line, which makes an angle of 30° with the positive
direction of y-axis measured anticlockwise.

**Solution:**

Since the line makes an angle of 30° with the positive direction of y-axis, this
line makes an angle of 90° + 30° = 120° with the positive direction of x-axis.

Hence, the slope of the given line, m = tan 120° = –√3

**Ex 10.1 Class 11
Maths Question 8.**

Find the value of x for which the points (x, -1), (2, 1) and (4, 5) are
collinear.

**Solution:**

Let A(x, -1), B(2, 1) and C(4, 5) be the given collinear points. Then by
collinearity of A, B and C, we have, slope of AB = slope of BC

**Ex 10.1 Class 11
Maths Question 9.**

Without using distance formula, show that points (-2, -1), (4, 0), (3, 3) and
(-3, 2) are the vertices of a parallelogram.

**Solution:**

Let A(-2, -1), B(4, 0), C(3, 3) and D(-3, 2) be the vertices of the given
quadrilateral ABCD. Then,

**Ex 10.1 Class 11
Maths Question 10.**

Find the angle between the x-axis and the line joining the points (3, -1) and (4,
-2).

**Solution:**

The given points are A(3, -1) and B(4, -2).

**Ex 10.1 Class 11 Maths Question 11.**

The slope of a line is double of the slope of another line. If tangent of the
angle between them is 1/3, find the
slopes of the lines.

**Solution:**

Let m_{1} and m_{2} be the slopes of the two lines.

**Ex 10.1 Class 11
Maths Question 12.**

A line passes through (x_{1}, y

_{1}) and (h, k). If slope of the line is m, show that

k – y_{1} = m (h
– x_{1}).

**Solution:**

The given line passes through (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (h, k). Also,
the slope of the line is m.

**Ex 10.1 Class 11 Maths Question 13.**

If three points (h, 0), (a, b) and (0, k) lie on a line, show that a/h + b/k = 1.

**Solution:**

Let A(h, 0), B(a, b) and C(0, k) be the given points which lie on the same line.

∴ Slope of AB = Slope of BC

**Ex 10.1 Class 11 Maths Question 14.**

Consider the following population and year graph (see figure), find the slope
of the line AB and using it, find what will be the population in the year 2010?**Solution:**

Since the line AB passes through the points A(1985, 92) and B(1995, 97).

Slope of AB = (97 – 92)/(1995 – 1985) = 5/10 = ½

Let the population in year 2010 is y, and the coordinates of C is (2010, y).

Then, slope of AB = slope of BC
