(a) Passing through the point (2, 3, -1) and parallel to the plane 3x – 4y + 7z = 0.
Solution:
Given plane is 3x – 4y + 7z = 0 … (1)
Any plane parallel to the plane (1) is given by 3x – 4y + 7z + d = 0.
If it passes through the point (2, 3, -1) then 6 – 12 – 7 + d = 0 or, d = 13

a (x – 2)+ b (y + 3) + c (z – 1) = 0 … (1)
If it passes through the point (-1, 1, -7)
then a (-1 – 2) + b (1 + 3) + c (-7 – 1) = 0
or 3a – 4b + 8c = 0 … (2)
Again given that plane (1) is perpendicular to the plane
x – 2y + 5z + 1 = 0
so a – 2b + 5c = 0 … (3)
Solving (2) and (3) we get

Solution:
Equation of the plane through the point (-1, 3, 2) is
a (x + 1) + b (y – 3) + c (z – 2) = 0
If this plane is perpendicular to the plane
x + 2y + 2z = 5 and 3x + 3y + 2z = 8
then a + 2b +2c = 0
3a + 3b + 2c = 0
Solving we get $$\frac{a}{4-6}=\frac{b}{6-2}=\frac{c}{3-6}$$
or $$\frac{a}{-2}=\frac{b}{4}=\frac{c}{-3} \text { or, } \frac{a}{2}=\frac{b}{-4}=\frac{c}{3}$$
Equation of the required plane is
2 (x + 1) – 4 (y – 3) + 3 (z – 2) = 0
or, 2x – b – 3z – 8 = 0 (e) Bisecting the line segment joining (-1, 4, 3) and (5, -2, -1) at right angles.

or (2 + 3k) x + (3 – k) y + (k – 4) z + (2k + 1) = 0 … (3)
If the plane (3) passes through the point (3, 2, 1)
then (2 + 3k) 3 + (3 – k) 2 + (k – 4) + 2k + 1 = 0

D.rs. of the normal of the plane (3) are < 2k + 1, k + 2, 3 – k >.
D.rs. of the normal of the plane (4) are < 5, 3, 6 >.
If the normal are perpendicular then
5 (2k + 1) + 3 (k + 2) + 6 (3 – k) = 0
⇒ 10k + 3k – 6k + 5 + 6 + 18 = 0
⇒ 7k = -29 or, -51x – 15y + 50z – 173 = 0
or, 51x + 15y – 50z + 173 = 0

(c) Passing through the intersection of ax + by + cz + d = 0 and a1x + b1y + c1z + d1 = 0 and perpendicular to xy-plane.

The d.rs. of the normals are < 1, 2, 2 > and <2, -1, 1 >.
If θ is the angle between two planes then Question 9.

(i) 3x – 6y + 2z + 5 = 0 and 4x – 12y + 3z – 3 = 0
Solution:
Given planes are
3x – 6y + 2z + 5 = 0 … (1)
and 4x – 12y + 3z – 3 = 0 … (2)
The equations of the bisectors are given by So the plane (3) is a bisector for obtuse angle and the plane (4) is the bisector for acute angle.

(ii) 2x + y – 2z – 1 = 0 and 4x – 12y + 3z + 3 = 0
Solution:
Given planes are
2x + y – 2z – 1 = 0 … (1)
and 4x – 12y + 3z + 3 = 0 … (2)
The equation of bisector planes are ∴ θ > 45°
∴ Equation (3) is the bisector of the use angle and equation (4) is the bisector of acute angle.

(b) Show that the origin lies in the interior of the acute angle between planes.
x + 2y + 2z + 9 and 4x – 3y + 12z + 13 = 0;
Find the equation of bisector of the acute angle.
Solution:
Given planes are x + 2y + 2z – 9 = 0

These equations can be written as
-x – 2y – 2z+ 9 = 0 … (1)
4x – 3y+ 12z + 13 = 0 … (2)
Here a1a2 + b1b2 + c1c2
= (-1) 4 + (-2) (-3) + (-2) . 12
= -4 + 6 – 24 = -22 < 0
So the origin lies in the acute angle between the given planes.
The equations of the planes bisecting the angle between the given planes are ⇒ tan θ < 1 ⇒ θ < 45°
Hence the plane (3) bisects the acute angle between the given planes. Question 10.
(a) Prove that the line joining (1, 2, 3), (2, 1, -1) intersects the line joining (-1, 3, 1) and (3, 1, 5)
Solution:
Let A = (1, 2, 3), B = (2, 1, -1), C = (-1, 3, 1), D = (3, 1, 5)
The line AB intersects CD if A, B, C, D are coplanar.
Equation of the plane or, (x – 1) (2 + 4) – (y – 2) (-2 – 8) + (z – 3) (1 – 2) = 0
or, 6 (x – 1) + 10 (y – 2) – (z – 3) = 0
or, 6x+ 10y – z – 23 = 0
The point (3, 1, 5) lies on the plane (1) because
6x + 10y – z – 23 = 18 + 10 – 5 – 23 = 0 … (1)
As (1) is satisfied for the point (3, 1, 5), the point lies on the plane (1).
Hence the four points are coplanar. So the line AB is either parallel to the line CD.
or, AB is intersecting to CD.
D.rs. of AB are < 1, -1, -4 >.
D.rs. of CD are < 4, -2, 4 >.
So d.rs. of AB are not proportional to d.rs. of CD. So they are not parallel. Hence they are intersecting.

(b) Show that the point (-$$\frac{1}{2}$$, 2, 0) is the circumcentre of the triangle formed by the points (1, 1, 0), (1, 2, 1) and (-2, 2, -1).
Solution: Thus PA = PB = PC
Hence P is the circumcentre of the ΔABC.

Question 11.
Show that plane ax + by + cz + d = 0 divides the line segment joining
(x1, y1, z1) and (x2, y2, z2) in a ratio – $$\frac{a x_1+b y_1+c z_1+d}{a x_2+b y_2+c z_2+d}$$.
Solution:
Let A = (x1, y1, z1) , B = (x2, y2, z2)
Suppose that the line AB intersects the plane
ax + by + cz + d = 0 at P. … (1)
Suppose the P divides AB into the ratio m:n.
Then the coordinates of P are Question 12.
A variable plane is at a constant distance p from the origin and meets the axes at A, B, C. Through A, B, C planes are drawn parallel to the co-ordinate planes. Show that the locus of their points of intersection is $$\frac{1}{x^2}+\frac{1}{y^2}+\frac{1}{z^2}=\frac{1}{p^2}$$.
Solution: The planes through the points A, B, C parallel to the coordinate planes are
x = a, y = b and z = c respectively.
Let P be the point of intersection of these planes.
Then p = (a, b, c)
Hence the locus of P is obtained by putting a = x, b = y, c = z in (2).
Hence the required locus is
$$\frac{1}{x^2}+\frac{1}{y^2}+\frac{1}{z^2}=\frac{1}{p^2}$$. (Proved)

Question 13.
A variable plane passes through a fixed point (a, b, c) and meets the co-ordinate axes at A, B, C. Show that the locus of the point common to the planes drawn through A, B and C parallel to the coordinate planes is $$\frac{a}{x}+\frac{b}{y}+\frac{c}{z}$$ = 1.
Solution:
Let the variable plane be
$$\frac{a}{\alpha}+\frac{b}{\beta}+\frac{c}{\gamma}$$ = 1 … (1)
It meets the axes at A (α, 0, 0), B (0, β, 0) and C (0, 0, γ).
If P is the point of intersection of the planes drawn through A, B and C parallel to the coordinate planes then P = (α, β, γ).
Again the plane (1) passes through a fixed point (a, b, c).
So $$\frac{a}{\alpha}+\frac{b}{\beta}+\frac{c}{\gamma}$$ = 1
∴ The locus of P is $$\frac{a}{x}+\frac{b}{y}+\frac{c}{z}$$ = 1. (Proved) Question 14.
The plane 4x + 7y + 4z + 81 = 0 is rotated through a right angle about its line of intersection with the plane 5x + 3y + 10z – 25 = 0. Find the equation of the plane in new position.
Solution:
Given that the plane
4x + 7y + 4z + 81 = 0 … (1)
is rotated through a right angle about the line of intersection with the plane
5x + 3y + 10z – 25 = 0 … (2)
Let the equation of the plane in new position be
4x + 7y + 4z + 81 + λ (5x + 3y -10z – 25) = 0
or, (4 + 5λ) x + (7 + 3λ) y + (4 + 10λ) z + (81 – 25λ) = 0
Then the angle between the planes (1 ) and (3) is 90° i.e., they are perpendicular.
So 4 (4 + 5λ) + 7 (7 + 3λ) + 4 (4 + 10λ) = 0
16 + 20λ + 49 + 21λ + 16 + 40λ = 0
81λ = -81
⇒ λ = -1
∴ The equation of plane in new position is
-x + 4y – 6z + 106 = 0
or, x – 4y + 6z – 106 = 0

Question 15.
The plane lx + my = 0 is rotated about its line of intersection with the plane z = 0 through angle measure α. Prove that the equation of the plane in new position is lx + my ± z $$\sqrt{l^2+m^2}$$ tan α = 0.
Solution:
Given plane is lx + my = 0 … (1)
The plane (1) is rotated through an angle α about line of intersection of the plane (1) and the plane z = 0 … (2)
Let the equation of the plane in it’s new position be lx + my + kz = 0. … (3)
D.rs. of the normal to the plane (1) are < l, m, 0 >.
D.rs. of the normal to the plane (3) are < l, m, k >.
If α is the angle between the planes (1) and (3) then
