Question

The x-coordinate of a point P is twice its y-coordinate. If P is equidistant from and find the coordinates of P.

Solution

Equidistant

Equidistant

Equidistant

Let the required point be

Let and are given points.

Now,

[using Distance formula. ]

Squaring both sides we get

Hence coordinates of P are (16. 8)

Question

Find the ratio in which y-axis divides the line segment joining the points and and find the point

Solution

The line segment joining

The Line Segment Joining

The line segment joining

Let the point on y-axis be and.

Co-ordinates of P given by:

Then, taking x-axis of AB;

Hence the required ratio is 5: 1

Now, taking y-axis,

Hence point ony-axis is
