Answer:

Question 7.

Prove that P(4,5) the point on AC and BD.

Answer:

AP +PC = 4√2 = AC

∴ P (4, 5) is a point on AC .

BP + PD = √2 + √2 = 2√2 = BD

∴ P (4, 5) is also a point on BD.

Question 8.

Find a point on x-axis equidistant from A and B.

Answer:

Let (x, 0) be a point on the x axis which is at equal distance from A and B .

(2 – x)2 + (3 – 0)2= (5 – x)2 + (4 – 0)2

(2 – x)2 + 9 = (5 – x)2 + 16

(2 – x)2 + (5 – x)2 = 16 – 9

4 – 4x + x2 – 25 + 10x – x2 = 7

6x = 28

x = 28/6 = 14/3

Horizontal line is x-axis and vertical line is y-axis.

Point of intersection of the x- axis and y axis is called the origin O. Numbers which are above and to the right side of the origin O will be always positive while numbers on left and below the origin will be negative.

All points on the x – axis have y – coordinates zero and all points on y-axis have x- coordinates zero.
