tips and tricks and shortcuts for coordinate geometry

Type 1: Tips and Tricks and Shortcuts for Coordinate Geometry Questions.

Question 1.

Find the equation of straight line passing through (2, 3) and perpendicular to the line 3x + 2y + 4 = 0

Options:

  1. 2x – 3y + 5 = 0
  2. 2x + 3y + 5 = 0
  3. 2x – 3y – 5 = 0
  4. 2x + 3y – 5 = 0

Solution Here:

x1 = 2; y1 = 3

The given line is 3x + 2y + 4 = 0

Line perpendicular to it will have slope m = 2 / 3

Thus equation of line through (2, 3) and slope 2 / 3 = y – y1 = m(x – x1)

(y – 3) = 2 / 3 (x – 2)

y – 3 = 2x – 4 / 3

3y – 9 = 2x – 4

2x – 3y + 5 = 0

Correct option: 1

Type 2: Coordinate Geometry Tips and Tricks and Shortcuts.
In which quadrant does the point lie?

Question 1.

In which quadrant does the point (-2, 3) lie?

Options:

  1. I quadrant
  2. II quadrant
  3. III quadrant
  4. IV quadrant

Solution Here:

The point is negative in the x axis and positive for the y axis, thus the point must lie in the 2nd quadrant.

Correct option: 2

Type 3: Tips and Tricks for Coordinate Geometry.
Find length of the segment or coordinates

Question 1.

Find the coordinate of the point which will divide the line joining the point (2, 3) and (3, 5) internally in the ratio 2:3?
Options:

  1. 2, 1
  2. 2, 5
  3. 12/5, 19/5
  4. . 12, 5/19

Solution:

We know that,

x = 2 * 3 + 3 * 2/ 2 + 3

x = 12/5 

y = 2 * 5 + 3 * 3/ 2 + 3

y = 19/5

Therefore, (x, y) = 12/5, 19/5

Correct option: 3

Type 4: Tips and Tricks and Shortcuts for Coordinate Geometry.
Area of the Triangle

Question 1.

Find the area of the triangle formed by the vertices (1, 2), (3,5) and (-2, 3)

Options:

  1. 2.5
  2. 3.5
  3. 5.5
  4. 6

Solution Here:

Area of triangle = A = 1/2 ((x1(y2 – y3) + x2(y3 – y1) + x3(y1 – y2))

A = 1/2 ((1(5 – 3) + 3(3 – 2) – 2(2 – 5))

A = 1/2 ((1(2) + 3(1) – 2(-3))

A = 1/2 (2 + 3 + 6)

A = 1/2 (11)

A = 5.5

Correct option: 3
