Question 11.
(a) Find the perimeter of the triangle whose vertices are (0, 1, 2) (2, 0, 4) and (-4, -2, 7).
Solution:

(b) Show that the points (a, b, c), (b, c, a), and (c, a, b) form an equilateral triangle.
Solution:

(c) Show that the points (3, -2, 4) (1, 1, 1) and (-1, 4, -1) are collinear.
Solution:
Let A = (3, -2, 4), B = (1, 1, 1) and C = (-1, 4, -2)
D. rs of AB are < -2, 3, -3 >
D. rs of BC are < -2, 3, -3 >
As D. rs of AB is the same as d.rs of
BC it follows that A, B, and C lie on the same straight line.
So the points are collinear. (Proved)

(d) Show that points (0, 1, 2), (2, 5, 8), (5, 6, 6), and (3, 2, 0) form a parallelogram.
Solution:

(e) Show that the line segment joining (7, -6, 1) (17, -18, -3) intersect the line segment joining (1, 4, -5), (3, -4, 11) at (2, 0, 3).
Solution:

D.rs of AP are < -5, 6, 2 >
D.rs of PB are < -15, 18, 6>
i.e., < -5, 6, 2 >
Thus d.r.s. of AP are the same as the d.r.s. of PB.
So A.P.B. are collinear.
Again d.rs. of CP are < 1, -4, 8 >
D. rs. of PD are < 1, -4, 8 >
Thus d.rs. of CP and d.rs. of PD are equal.
So the points C.P.D. are collinear.
Hence line AB intersects the line CD at P.        (Proved)

(f) Find the locus of points that are equidistant from points (1, 2, 3) and (3, 2, -1).
Solution:
Let A = (1, 2, 3), B = (3, 2, -1)
Let P (x, y, z) be equidistant from A and B.
Then PA = DB
(x – 1 )2 + (y – 2)2 + (z – 3)2
= (x – 3)2 + (y – 2)2 + (z + 1)2
⇒ (x – 1)2 – (x – 3)2 + (y – 2)2 – (y – 2)2 + (z – 3)2 – (z + 1)2 = 0
⇒ (x – 1 + x – 3) (x – 1 – x + 3) + (z – 3 + z + 1)(z – 3 – z – 1) = 0
⇒ (2x – 4) . 2 + (2z – 2) . (- 4) = 0
⇒ x – 2 – 2z + 2 = 0
⇒ x – 2z = 0 This is the required locus.

Solution:

(e) Prove that the points P(3, 2, -4), Q(5, 4, -6) and R(9, 8, -10) are collinear. Find the ratio in which point Q divides the line segment PR.
Solution:
Given that P = (3, 2, -4)
Q = (5, 4, -6), R = (9, 8, -10)
D. rs. of PQ are < 2, 2, -2 >
D. rs. of QR are < 4, 4, -4 >
i.e., < 2, 2, -2 >
Thus D.rs. of PQ and QR are the same.
So P, Q, R lie on the same straight line.
Hence P, Q, and R are collinear.     (Proved)
Let Q divides the join of PR in ratio k: 1
∴ $$\frac{9 k+3}{k+1}$$ = 5, $$\frac{8 k+2}{k+1}$$ = 4, $$\frac{-10 k-4}{k+1}$$ = -6
⇒ k = $$\frac{1}{2}$$
Thus the ratio is 1: 2
