**NCERT Solutions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7**

**Q.1 Find the distance between the following pairs of points: **

(i)

(2, 3), (4, 1)

(ii)

(−5, 7), (−1, 3)

(iii)

(a, b), (−a, −b)

**Solution **

Distance between two points ( x1 , y1 ) and ( x2 , y2 ) is

√ − ( x−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−− 1 − x2)2 + ( y1 − y2)− 2 (i) Distance between (2, 3) and (4, 1)

is

= √ − (2 −−−−−−−−−−−−− − 4 )2 + (3 − 1 )− 2 = √ − (−2 −−−−−−−− (2)2 + )− 2 = √ − 4+4 −−− = 8√ = 2 2√

(ii) Distance between (−5, 7) and (−1, 3)

is

= √ − (−5 −−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−− − (−1) )2 + (7 − 3 )− 2 = √ − (−4 −−−−−−−− (4)2 + )− 2 = √ − 16 −−−−− + 16 = √ −− 32= 4 2√

(iii )Distance between (a, b) and (−a, −b)

is

= √ − (a− −−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−− (−a) )2 + (b − (−b) )− 2 = √ − (2a −−−−−−−− )2 + (2b )− 2 = √ − 4 −−−−−−− a2 + 4 b2 = 2 √ − a−−−−− 2 + b2 #465323 Topic: Distance Between Two Points

**Q.2 Find the distance between the points (0, 0) and (36, 15) . **

**Solution **

Distance Between two given point=

√ − ( x−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−− 2 − x1)2 + ( y2 − y1)− 2 Here

x1 = 0, x2 = 26 and y1 = 0, y2 = 15 ∴ Distance between the points (0, 0) and (36, 15) =

√ − (36 −−−−−−−−−−−−−− − 0 )2 + (15 − 0 )− 2 = √ − +36−−−−−−− 2 152 = √ − 1296 −−−−−−− + 225 − = √ − 1521 −−− = 39

**Q.3 Determine if the points (1, 5), (2, 3) and (−2, −11) are collinear. **

**Solution **

Three points A , B and C

are collinear if

AB+BC = AC

Here, point A(1, 5), B(2, 3) and

C(−2, −11). ∴ AB = √ − (2 −−−−−−−−−−−−− − 1 )2 + (3 − 5 )− 2 = √ − 1−−−−−−− 2 +(− 22 − ) = √ − 1+4 −−− = 5√ = 2.23 BC = √ − ((−2) −−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−− − (2) )2 + ((−11) − (3) )− 2 = √ − (−4 −−−−−−−−−− )2 + (−14 )− 2 = √ − 16 −−−−−− + 196 = √ −−− 212 = 14.56 AC = √ − ((−2) −−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−−− − (1) )2 + ((−11) + (5) )− 2 = (√ − 3 )2 + (−16 )2 = √ − 9 −−−−− + 256 = √ −−− 265 = 16.27 AB+BC = 2.23 + 14.56 = 16.79

AB+BC ≃ AC

Hence the given points are collinear.

**Q. 4 Find the ratio in which the line segment joining the points (−3, 10) and (6, −8) is divided by (−1, 6) **

**Solution **

Let the required ratio be

m1 : m2

Take ( x1 , y1 ) = (−3, 10); ( x2 , y2 ) = (6, −8) and

(x,y) = (−1, 6) ∴ ⇒ x −1 = = m1xmm2 1 1 + m2x1

+ ×6+ m2

m2 ×−3 m1 + m2 ⇒− m1 − m2 =6m − 3 m2

⇒− m1 −6 m1 =−3 m2 + m2

⇒ −7 m1 = −2 m2 ⇒ m1m2

= 27 ∴ The required ratio is 2:7
