Solution:

60°

Question 2.

State with reasons which of the following are true or false :

(a) The equation x = k represents a line parallel to x – axis for all real values of k.

Solution:

False. As the line x = k is parallel to y- axis for all values of k.

(b) The line, y + x + 1 = 0 makes an angle 45° with y – axis.

Solution:

y + x + 1 = 0

∴ Its slope = -1 = tan 135°

∴ It makes 45° with y – axis, as it makes 135° with x – axis. (True)

(c) The lines represented by 2x – 3y + 1 = 0 and 3x + 2y – k = 0 are perpendicular to each other for positive values of k only.

Solution:

2x – 3y + 1 = 0, 3x + 2y – k = 0

∴ \(m_1 m_2=\frac{2}{3} \times \frac{(-3)}{2}=-1\)

∴ The lines are perpendicular to each other for + ve values of k only. (False)

(d) The lines represented by px + 2y – 1 = 0 and 3x + py + 1 = 0 are not coincident for any value of ‘p’.

Solution:

px + 2y – 1 = 0, 3x + py + 1=0

∴ \(\frac{p}{3}=\frac{2}{p}=\frac{-1}{1} \Rightarrow p^2=6\)

and p = -3 or -2

There is no particular value of p for which \(\frac{a_1}{a_2}=\frac{b_1}{b_2}=\frac{c_1}{c_2}\) (True)

(e) The equation of the line whose x and y – intercepts are 1 and -1 respectively is x – y + 1 = 0.

Solution:

Equation of the line whose intercepts 1 and -1 is \(\frac{x}{1}+\frac{y}{-1}\) = 1

or, x – y = 1 (False)

(f) The point (-1, 2) lies on the line 2x + 3y – 4 = 0.

Solution:

Putting x = – 1, y = 2

we have 2 (- 1) + 3 × 2 – 4

= -2 + 6 – 4 = 0

∴ The point (-1, 2) lies on the line 2x + 3 – 4 = 0 (True)

(g) The equation of a line through (1, 1) and (-2, -2) is y = – 2x.

Solution:

The equation of the line through (1, 1) and (-2, -2) is y – y_{1} = \(\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\) (x – x_{1})

or, y – 1 = \(\frac{-2-1}{-2-1}\) (x – 1)

or, y – 1 = x – 1

or, x – y = 0 (False)

(h) The line through (1, 2) perpendicular to y = x is y + x – 2 =0.

Solution:

The slope of the line y = x is 1.

∴ The slope of the line perpendicular to the above line is -1.

∴ The equation of the line through (1, 2) having slope – 1 is y – y_{1} = m(x – x_{1})

or, y – 2 = -1 (x – 1)

or, y – 2= -x + 1

or, x + y = 3 (False)

(i) The lines \(\frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{b}\) = 1 and \(\frac{y}{a}-\frac{x}{b}\) = 1 are intersecting but not perpendicular to each other.

Solution:

\(\frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{b}\) = 1 and \(\frac{y}{a}-\frac{x}{b}\) = 1

∴ \(m_1 m_2=\frac{\left(-\frac{1}{a}\right)}{\frac{1}{b}} \times \frac{\left(-\frac{1}{b}\right)}{\left(-\frac{1}{a}\right)}=-1\)

∴ The lines intersect and are perpendicular to each other. (False)

(j) The points (1, 2) and (3, – 2) are on the opposite sides of the line 2x + y = 1.

Solution:

2x + y = 1

Putting x = 1, y = 2,

we have 2 × 1 + 2 = 4 > 1

Putting x – 3, y = -2,

we have 2 × 3 – 2 – 4 > 1

∴ Points (1, 2) and (3, – 2) lie on the same side of the line 2x + y = 1 (False)

Question 3.

Solution:

= \(\frac{1}{2}\) (-3x + 4y + 7) = 5

or, – 3x + 4y + 7 = 10

or, 3x – 4y + 3 =0 which is the locus of the point P (x, y).

Question 5.

Obtain the equation of straight lines:

(a) Passing through (1, – 1) and making an angle 150°.

Solution:

The slope of the line

= tan 150° = –\(\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\)

∴ The equation of the line is y – y_{1} = m(x – x_{1})

or, y + 1 = –\(\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\) (x – 1)

or, y√3 + √3 = -x + 1

or, x + y√3 + √3 – 1 = 0

(b) Passing through (-1, 2) and making intercept 2 on the y-axis.

Solution:

Let the equation of the line be

y – mx + c or, y = mx + 2

∴ As the line passes through (-1, 2)

we have 2 = – m + 2, or, m = 0

∴ Equation of the line is y = 2.

(c) Passing through the points (2, 3) and (-4, 1).

Solution:

The equation of the line is

(d) Passing through (- 2, 3) and a sum of whose intercepts in 2.

Solution:

Let the equation of the line be \(\frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{b}\) = 1 where a + b = 2 …….(1)

Again, as the line passes through the point (-2, 3), we have \(\frac{-2}{a}+\frac{3}{b}\) = 1 ………(2)

From (1), we have a= 2 – b

∴ From (2) \(\rightarrow \frac{-2}{2-b}+\frac{3}{b}=1\)

or, – 2b + 6 – 3b = (2 – b)b

or, 6 – 5b = 2b – b^{2}

or, b^{2} – 7b + 6 = 0

or, (b – 6)(b – 1) = 0

∴ b = 6, 1

∴ a =2 – b = 2 – 6 = -4

or, 2 – 1 = 1

∴ Equation of the lines are \(\frac{x}{-4}+\frac{y}{6}\) = 1 or \(\frac{x}{1}+\frac{y}{1}\) = 1

i, e. -3x + 2y = 12 or, x + y = 1

(e) Whose perpendicular distance from the origin is 2 such that the perpendicular from the origin has indication 150°.

Solution:

Here p = 2, α = 150°

The equation of the line in normal form is x cos α + y sin α = p

or, x cos 150° + y sin 150° = 2

or, \(\frac{-x \sqrt{3}}{2}+y \cdot \frac{1}{2}\) = 2

or, -x √3 + y = 4

or, x√3 – y + 4 = 0

Solution:

(j) Passing through (-4, 2) and parallel to the line 4x – 3y = 10.

Solution:

Slope of the line 4x – 3y = 10 is \(\frac{-4}{-3}=\frac{4}{3}\)

∴ The slope of the line parallel to the above line is \(\frac{4}{3}\).

∴ Equation of the line through (- 4, 2) and having slope \(\frac{4}{3}\) is y – y_{1} = m(x – x_{1})

or, y – 2 = \(\frac{4}{3}\) (x + 4)

or, 3y – 6 = 4x + 16

or, 4x – 3y + 22 = 0

(k) Passing through the point (a cos^{3} θ, a sin^{3} θ) and perpendicular to the straight line x sec θ + y cosec θ = α.

Solution:

The slope of the line x sec θ + y cosec θ = a is \(\frac{-\sec \theta}{{cosec} \theta}\) = -tanθ

∴ Slope of the required line = cot θ

∴ Equation of the line through (a cos^{3} θ, a sin^{3} θ) is y – y_{1} = m(x – x_{1})

or, y – a sin^{3} θ = cot θ(x – a cos^{3} θ)

or, y – a sin^{3} θ = \(\frac{\cos \theta}{\sin \theta}\) (x – a cos^{3} θ)

or y sin θ – a sin^{4} θ = x cos θ – a cos^{4} θ

or (x cos θ – y sin θ) + a(sin^{4} θ – cos^{4} θ) = 0

(l) Which passes through the point (3, -4) and is such that its portion between the axes is divided at this point internally in the ratio 2: 3.

Solution:

(m) which passes through the point (α, β) and is such that the given point bisects its portion between the coordinate axis.

Solution:

x = 2α , y = 2β

∴ Equation of the line \(\overleftrightarrow{\mathrm{AB}}\) is \(\frac{x}{2 \alpha}+\frac{y}{2 \beta}\) = 1(Intercept form)

Question 7.

(a) Find the equation of the lines that is parallel to the line 3x + 4y + 7 = 0 and is at a distance 2 from it.

Solution:

3x + 4y + 7 = 0

or, \(\frac{3 x}{5}+\frac{4 y}{5}+\frac{7}{5}\) = 0(Normal form)

∴ Equation of the lines parallel to the above line and 2 units away from it are \(\frac{3 x}{5}+\frac{4 y}{5}+\frac{7}{5}\) ± 2 = 0

or, 3x + 4y + 7 ± 10 = 0

∴ 3x + 4y + 17 = 0 and 3x + 4y – 3 = 0

(b) Find the equations of diagonals of the parallelogram formed by the lines ax + by = 0, ax + by + c = 0, lx + my = 0, and lx + my + n = 0. What is the condition that this will be a rhombus?

Solution:

(c) Find the equation of the line passing through the intersection of 2x – y – 1 = 0 and 3x – 4y + 6 = 0 and parallel to the line x + y – 2 = 0.

Solution:

Let the equation of the required line be (2x – y – 1) + λ(3x – 4y + 6) = 0

or, x(2 + 3λ) + λ(-1 – Aλ) + 6λ – 1 = 0

As this line is parallel to the line x + y – 2 = 0

we have their slopes are equal.

∴ \(-\left(\frac{2+3 \lambda}{-1-4 \lambda}\right)=\frac{-1}{1}\)

or, 2 + 3λ = -1 – 4λ

or, 7λ = -3 or, λ = \(\frac{-3}{7}\)

∴ Equation of the line is (2x – y – 1) – \(\frac{3}{7}\) (3x – 4y + 6) = 0

or, 14x – 7y – 1 – 9x + 12y – 18 = 0

or, 5x + 5y – 25= 0

or, x + y = 5

(d) Find the equation of the line passing through the point of intersection of lines x + 3y + 2 = 0 and x – 2y – 4 = 0 and perpendicular to the line 2y + 5x – 9 = 0.

Solution:

Let the equation of the line be (x + 3y + 2) + λ(x – 2y – 4) = 0

or, x(1 + λ) + y(3 – 2λ) + 2 – 4λ = 0

As this line is perpendicular to the line 2y + 5x – 9 = 0.

We have the product of their slopes is -1.

∴ \(\frac{1+\lambda}{3-2 \lambda} \times \frac{5}{2}\) = -1

or, 5 + 5λ = – 6 + 4λ

or, λ = -6 – 5 = -11.

∴ Equation of the required line is (x + 3y + 2) – 11(x – 2y – 4) = 0

or, x + 3y + 2- 11x + 22y + 44 = 0

or, – 10x + 25y + 46 = 0

or, 10x – 25y – 46 = 0

(e) Find the equation of the line passing through the intersection of the lines x + 3y – 1 = 0 and 3x – y + 1 = 0 and the centroid of the triangle whose vertices are the points (3, -1) (1, 3) and (2, 4).

Solution:

Let the equation of the required line (x + 3y – 1) + λ(3x – y + 1) = 0 … (1)

Again, the centroid of the triangle with vertices (3, – 1), (1, 3), and (2, 4) is \(\left(\frac{3+1+2}{3}, \frac{-1+3+4}{3}\right)\) = (2, 2)

As line (1) passes through (2, 2), we have (2 + 6 – 1) +1(6 – 2 + 1) = 0

or, 7 + 5λ = 0 or, λ = \(\frac{-7}{5}\)

∴ Equation of the line (x + 3y – 1) – \(\frac{7}{5}\) (3x – y + 1) = 0

or, 5x + 15y – 5 – 21x + 7y – 7 = 0

or, 22y – 16x – 12 = 0

or, 11y – 8x – 6 = 0

or, 8x – 11y + 6 = 0

Question 8.

If lx + my + 3 = 0 and 3x – 2y – 1 = 0 represent the same line, find the values of l and m.

Solution:

lx + my + 3 = 0 and 3x – 2y – 1 = 0 represents the same line

∴ \(\frac{l}{3}=\frac{m}{-2}=\frac{3}{-1}\)

∴ l = -9, m = 6

Question 9.

Find the equation of sides of a triangle whose vertices are at (1, 2), (2, 3), and (-3, -5).

Solution:

Equation of \(\overline{\mathrm{AB}}\) is \(y-y_1=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\left(x-x_1\right)\)

\(y-2=\frac{3-2}{2-1}(x-1)\)

or, y – 2 = x – 1

or, x – y + 1 = 0

Question 10.

Show that origin is within the triangle whose sides are given by equations, 3x – 2y = 1, 5x + 3y + 11 = 0, and x – 7y + 25 = 0.

or, 11x – y = 35, x + 11y + 19 = 0

(b) Two straight lines are drawn through the point (3, 4) inclined at an angle 45° to the line x – y – 2 = 0. Find their equations and obtain area included by the above three lines.

Solution:

Slope of L_{2} = 0

Then as L_{2} ⊥ L_{3}

Slope of L_{3} = ∞

∴ Equation of L_{2} is

y – y_{1} =m(x – x_{1})

or, y – 4 = 0(x – 3) = 0

or, y = 4

∴ Equation of L_{3} is y – 4 = ∞ (x – 3)

or, x – 3 = 0 or, x = 3

∴ Sloving L_{1} and L_{2}, we have

x – y – 2 = 0, y = 4

or, x = 6

The coordinates of A are (6, 4).

Again solving L1 and L3, we have

x – y – 2 = 0, x = 3

or, y = x – 2 = 3 – 2 = 1

∴ The coordinates of B are (3, 1).

Area of the triangle PAB is

(c) Show that the area of the triangle formed by the lines given by the equations y = m_{1}x + c_{1},y = m_{2}x + c_{2,} and x = 0 is \(\frac{1}{2} \frac{\left(c_1-c_2\right)^2}{\left[m_2-m_1\right]}\)

Solution:

Question 12.

Find the equation of lines passing through the origin and perpendicular to the lines 3x + 2y – 5 = 0 and 4x + 3y = 7. Obtain the coordinates of the points where these perpendiculars meet the given lines. Prove that the equation of a line passing through these two points is 23x + 11y – 35 = 0.

Solution:

The slopes of the line 3x + 2y – 5 = 0 and 4x + 3y = 7 are \(\frac{-3}{2}\) and \(\frac{-4}{3}\)

∴ Slopes of the lines perpendicular to the above lines are \(\frac{2}{3}\) and \(\frac{3}{4}\)

∴ Equation of the lines through the origin and having slopes \(\frac{2}{3}\) and \(\frac{3}{4}\)

y = \(\frac{2x}{3}\) and y = \(\frac{3x}{4}\)

Now solving 3x + 2y – 5 = 0 and y = \(\frac{2x}{3}\)

we have 3x + \(\frac{4x}{3}\) – 5 = 0

or, 9x + 4x – 15 = 0

or, x = \(\frac{15}{13}\)

∴ y = \(\frac{2 x}{3}=\frac{2}{3} \times \frac{15}{13}=\frac{10}{13}\)

∴ The perpendicular y = \(\frac{2 x}{3}\) meets the line 3x + 2y – 5 = 0 at \(\left(\frac{15}{13}, \frac{10}{13}\right)\)

Again, solving 4x + 3y = 7 and y = \(\frac{3 x}{4}\)

we have 4x + 3 × \(\frac{3 x}{4}\) = 7

or, 16x + 9x = 28 or, x = \(\frac{28}{25}\)

Question 13.

(a) Find the length of a perpendicular drawn from the point (-3, -4) to the straight line whose equation is 12x – 5y + 65 = 0.

(b) Find the perpendicular distances of the point (2, 1) from the parallel lines 3x – 4y + 4 = 0 and 4y – 3x + 5 = 0. Hence find the distance between them.

Solution:

The distance of the point (2, 1) from the line 3x – 4y + 4 = 0 is \(\left|\frac{3 \times 2-4 \times 1+4}{\sqrt{9+16}}\right|=\frac{6}{5}\)

Again distance of the point (2, 1) from the line 4y – 3x + 5 = 0 is

(c) Find the distance of the point (3, 2) from, the line x + 3y – 1 = 0, measured parallel to the line 3x – 4y + 1 = 0

Solution:

Let the coordinates of M be (h, k).

As \(\overline{\mathrm{PM}} \| \mathrm{L}_1\), We have their slopes are equal.

(d) Find the distance of the point (-1, -2) from the line x + 3y – 7 = 0, measured parallel to the line 3x + 2y – 5 = 0

Solution:

Slope of the line 3x + 2y – 5 = 0 is \(\left(-\frac{3}{2}\right)\)

Equation of the line through (-1, -2) and parallel to this line is y + 2 = – \(\frac{3}{2}\) (x + 1)

⇒ 2y + 4 = -3x – 3

⇒ 3x + 2y + 7 = 0 …(1)

Given line is : x + 3y – 7 = 0 ….(2)

from (1) and (2) we get 7y – 28 = 0 Py = 4 and x = \(-\frac{35}{7}\) = -5

Thus the required distance is \(\sqrt{(-1+5)^2+(-2-4)^2} \quad=\sqrt{16+36}\)

= √52 = 2√3 units.

(e) Fine the distance of the line passing through the points (a cos α, a sin α) and (a cos β, a sin β) from the origin.

Solution:

The equation of the line passing through the points (a cos α, a sin α) and (a cos β, a sin β) is y – y_{1} = \(\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\) x – x_{1}

or, y – a sin α

Question 14.

Solution:

Question 15.

Solution:

Question 16.

Show that the lengths of perpendiculars drawn from any point of the straight line 2x + 11y – 5 = 0 on the lines 24x + 7y – 20 = 0 and 4x – 3y – 2 = 0 are equal to each other.

Solution:

Let P(h, k) is any point on the line

2k + 11y – 5 = 0

∴ 2h + 11k – 5 = 0

Now the length of the perpendicular from P on the line 24x + 7y – 20 = 0 is

Clearly d_{1} = d_{2}

Question 17.

If p and p’ are the length of perpendiculars drawn from the origin upon the lines x sec α + y cosec α = 0 and x cos α – y sin α – a cos 2α = 0

Solution:

Question 18.

Obtain the equation of the lines passing through the foot of the perpendicular from (h, k) on the line Ax + By + C = 0 and bisect the angle between the perpendicular and the given line.

Solution:

Slope of the line L is \(\frac{-\mathrm{A}}{\mathrm{B}}\)

∴ Slope of the line \(\overline{\mathrm{PM}} \text { is } \frac{\mathrm{B}}{\mathrm{A}}\)

∴ Equation of the line \(\overline{\mathrm{PM}}\) is y – y_{1} = m(x – x_{1})

or, y – k = \(\frac{\mathrm{B}}{\mathrm{A}}\) (x – h)

or, Ay – Ak =Bx – Bh

or, Bx – Ay + Ak – Bh = 0

∴ Equation of the bisectors of the angles between the lines L and \(\overline{\mathrm{PM}}\) is

\(\frac{\mathrm{A} x+\mathrm{B} y+\mathrm{C}}{\sqrt{\mathrm{A}^2+\mathrm{B}^2}}=\pm \frac{\mathrm{B} x-\mathrm{A} y+\mathrm{A} k-\mathrm{B} h}{\sqrt{\mathrm{B}^2+\mathrm{A}^2}}\)

or, Ax + By + C = ± (Bx – Ay +Ak – Bh)

Question 19.

Solution:

or 1 + 3λ = – 3 – 6λ

or 9λ = – 4 or , λ = \(\frac{-4}{9}\)

∴ Equation of \(\overline{\mathrm{AD}}\) is (x + y – 3) – \(\frac{4}{9}\) (3x + 2y – 6) = 0

or, 9x + 9y – 27 – 12x – 8y + 24 = 0

or, -3x + y – 3 = 0

or, 3x – y + 3 = 0

Let the equation of \(\overline{\mathrm{BE}}\) be (x + y – 3) + 1(x + 3y – 3) = 0

or, x(1 + λ) + y( 1 + 3λ) – 3 – 3λ = 0

As \(\overline{\mathrm{BE}} \perp \overline{\mathrm{AC}}\)

we have \(\frac{1+\lambda}{1+3 \lambda} \times \frac{3}{2}\) = -1

or, 3 + 3λ = -2 – 6λ

or, 9λ = – 5 or λ = \(\frac{-5}{9}\)

∴ Equation of \(\overline{\mathrm{BE}}\) is (x + y – 3) – \(\frac{5}{9}\) (x + 3y – 3) = 0

or 9x + 9y – 27 – 5x – 15y + 15 = 0

or, 4x – 6y – 12 = 0

or, 2x – 3y – 6 = 0

Let the equation of \(\overline{\mathrm{CE}}\) be (3x + 2y – 6) + λ (x + 3y – 3) = 0

Question 23.

Obtain the equation of the bisector of the acute angle between the pair of lines.

(a) x + 2y = 1, 2x + y + 3 = 0

Solution:

or, x + 2y – 1 = ± (2x + y + 3)

∴ x + 2y – 1 = 2x + y + 3 and

x + 2y – 1= -2x – y – 3

∴ x – y + 4 = 0 and 3x + 3y + 2 = 0

Let θ be the angle between x + 2y – 1 = 0 and x – y + 4 = 0

∴ tan θ = \(\frac{a_1 b_2-a_2 b_1}{a_1 a_2+b_1 b_2}\)

\(=\frac{1 \cdot(-1)-(+1) \cdot 2}{1 \cdot 1+2(-1)}\)

\(=\frac{-1-2}{1-2}=\frac{-3}{-1}=3\)

sec^{2} θ = 1 + tan^{2} θ = 1 + 9 = 10

cos^{2} θ = 1/10

cos θ = \(\frac{1}{\sqrt{10}}<\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\) ⇒ θ > 45°

∴ x – y + 4 = 0 is the obtuse angle bisector.

(c) x^{2} + 2xy sec θ + y^{2} = 0

Solution:

x^{2} + 2xy sec θ + y^{2} = 0

∴ a = 1, b = 2y sec θ, c = y^{2}

x = \(\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4 a c}}{2 a}\)

= \(\frac{2 y \sec \theta \pm \sqrt{4 y^2 \sec ^2 \theta-4 y^2}}{2}\)

= \(\frac{-2 y \sec \theta \pm 2 y \tan \theta}{2}\)

= y (- sec θ ± tan θ)

2f = 1, c = 1

∴ g = \(\frac{3}{2}\), f = \(\frac{1}{2}\), h = 0

∴ abc + 2fgh – ah^{2} – bg^{2} – ch^{2}

= 2(-6). 1 + 2 × \(\frac{1}{2}\) × \(\frac{3}{2}\) – 0 – (-6) × \(\frac{9}{4}\) – 1 × 0

= -12 + \(\frac{3}{2}\) + \(\frac{27}{2}\) = \(\frac{6}{2}\) = 3 ≠ 0

∴ The given equation does not represent a pair or lines.

(b) 10x^{2} – xy – 6y^{2} – x + 5y – 1 = 0

Solution:

a = 10. 2h = 1

B = -6, 2g = -1

2f = 5. C= -1

∴ h = –\(\frac{1}{2}\), g = –\(\frac{1}{2}\) , f = \(\frac{5}{2}\)

λx^{2} + 5xy – 2y^{2} – 8x + 5y – λ = 0

∴ a = λ, 2h = 5, b = -2, 2g = -8

2f = 5, c = -1

∴ h = \(\frac{5}{2}\), g = -4, f = \(\frac{5}{2}\)

Let h = 1, k = 2

Taking x’ + h and y = y’ + k we have

(x’ + h)^{2} + (y’ + k)^{2} – 2(x’ + j) -4(y’ + k) + 1=0

or, (x + 1)^{2} + (y’ + 2)^{2} – 2(x’ + 1) – 4(y’+ 2) + 1=0

y = x’ sin α – y’ cos α

We get (x’ cos α – y’ sin α)^{2} – (x’ cos α – y’ cos α) (x’ sin α + y’ cos α) + (x’ sin α + y’ cos α)^{2} = 5

⇒ x^{‘2} cos^{2} α + y^{‘2} sin^{2} α – 2x’y sin α.

cos α – x^{‘2} sin α. cos α – x’y cos^{2} α + x’y’ sin^{2} α + y^{‘2} sin α. cos α + x^{‘2} sin^{2} α + y^{‘2} cos^{2} α + 2x’y’ sin α cos α = 5

Given that the transformed equation does not xy term.

Hence the co-efficient of x’y’ is zero.

or, x + 2y’ = 0

∴ The transformed equation is x + 2y = 0.
