## Karnataka 1st PUC Basic Maths Question Bank Chapter 17 Straight Lines

Question 1.

Find the slope of the line joining the points (3, -4) and (-7,3).

Answer:

Question 2.

Show that the line joining points (2, -3) and (-5,1) is parallel to the line joining the points (7, -1) and (0,3) and perpendicular to the line joining the points (4,5) and (0, -2).

Answer:

Let m_{1} be the slope of the lien l_{1} joining points (2, -3) and (0, 3)

Let m_{2} be the slope of the line l_{2} going (7, -1) and (0,3)

⇒ m_{1} = m_{2}

∴ L_{1} and L_{2} are parallel to each other.

Question 3.

L_{1} and L_{3} or l_{2} l_{3} are perpendicular to each other. The slope of a line is double the

slope of another line. If the tangent of the angle between the is . Find the slope of the lines.

Answer:

If slope of one line is m, then the slope of the other is 2m.

Let the angle between them θ then tan θ =

⇒ =

⇒ 1 + 2m^{2} = 3m

⇒ 2m^{2} – 3m + x = 0

⇒ (2m – 1)(m – 1 ) = 0

∴ 2m – 1 = 0 and m – 1 = 0

m = m = 1

∴ Slope are , and 1.

On standard form of straight lines:

Question 1.

Find the equation of line passing through (-3, 5) with slope

Answer:

Let (x_{1} y_{1}) = (-3, 5). slope m =

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

= y – 5 = (x + 3)

⇒ 5y – 25 = -x – 3

⇒ x + 5y – 22 = 0

Question 2.

Find the equation line passing through (-3, 2) and (11, -1).

Answer:

Let (x_{1}, y_{1}) = (-3,2), (x_{2}, y_{2}) = (11,-1)

⇒

⇒ 14y – 28 = -3x – 9

⇒ 3x + 14y – 19 = 0 is the equation

Question 3.

Find the ratio in which the line join (1, 2) and (4, 3) is divided by the line joining the points (2,3) and (4, 1).

Answer:

Let A = (2,3) B = (4, 1)

∴ the equation of line is a given by

⇒ = -1

⇒ y – 3 = -x + 2

∴ x + y – 5 = 0 is the equation of line

Let c = (1,2) and D(4,3) cut the line AB at P(x ,y) is the ratio 2 : 1 then

⇒ 4x + 1 + 3r + 2 – 5(r + 1) = 0

⇒ 2r – 2 = 0

⇒ r = 1

∴ the required ratio is 1 : 1

Question 4.

Express 9x – 4y – 13 = 0 in the intercept from

Answer:

Consider 9x – 4y = 13 = = 1

∴ x – intercept =

y – intercept =

Question 5.

If P ¡s the length of the perpendicular from the origin on a line, whose x and y intercepts are respectively a and b then show that =

Answer:

Let the line any the axis at A and y – axis at B

Then by data OA = a and OB = b from the figure

Area of OAB = (O.A) (O.B) = ab

or = (AB).P

⇒ ab = (AB).P ⇒ a^{2}b^{2} = (AB)^{2}. p^{2}

Also AB^{2} = OA^{2} + OB^{2} ⇒ AB^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2} (∴ because a^{2}b^{2} = (a^{2} + b^{2}) . p^{2}

Intersection of two lines and Concurrency of Lines

Question 1.

Find the equation of line parallel to the y-axis and drawn through the point of intersection of x – 7y + 5 = 0 and 3x + y – 7 = 0.

Answer:

The equation of line through the point of intersection of the given lines is of the form x – 7y + 5 + k(3x + y – 7) = 0

∴ (1 + 3k)x + (k -7)y + 5 – 7k = 0 (1)

Since the lines are parallel to y-axis, coefficient of y = 0

i.e., k – 7 =0

∴ k = 7 substitute in (1) we get

22x – 44 = 0

∴ x – 2 = 0 is required equation

Question 2.

Find the equation of the line through the intersection of 5x – 3y = 1 and 2x + 3y – 23 = 0 and perpendicular to the line whose equation is 5x – 3y -1 = 0 and perpendicular to the line whose equation is 5x – 3y – 1 = 0.

Answer:

We have 5x – 3y – 1 = 0 ….. (1)

and 2x + 3y – 23 = 0 ….. (2) .

∴ the equation will be in the form

(5x – 3y – 1) + k(2x + 3y – 23) = 0

⇒ (5 + 2k)x + 3(k – 1)y – (23k + 1) = 0 …… (3)

∴ Slope of line =

Also 5x – 3y – 1 = 0

⇒ y = …….. (1)

∴slope =

Given (4) and (5) are perpendicular

⇒ k = -34. Substituting the value of k in (3), we get

(5x – 3y – 1) -34 (2x + 3y – 25) = 0

⇒ 5x – 68x – 3y – 102y – 1 + 782 = 0

⇒ 63x + 105y – 781 = 0

Question 3.

If lines whose equation are y = m_{1} + c_{1}y = m_{2}x + c_{2} and y = m_{5}x + c_{3} meet is a point then prove that m_{1}( (c_{2} – c_{3}) + m_{2} (c_{3} – c_{1}) + m_{3}(c_{1} – c_{2}) = 0

Answer:

The equation of the given lines are

m_{1}x – y + c_{1} = 0 ……. (1)

m_{2}x – y + c_{2} = 0 …… (2)

m_{3}x – y + c_{3} = 0 .. (3)

The three lines will be concurrent if the point of intersection of (1) and (2) lies on (3)

⇒ m_{3}(c_{1} – c_{2}) – (m_{2}c_{1} – m_{1}c_{2}) + c_{3} (m_{2} – m_{1}) =0, simplify,

⇒ m_{1}(c_{2} – c_{3}) + m_{2}(c_{3} – c_{1}) + m_{3}(c_{1} – c_{2}) =0

Question 4.

For what values of k are the lines x – 2y + 1 = 0, 2x – 5y + 3 = 0 and 5x – 9y + k = 0 are concurrent.

Answer:

consider

x – 2y + 1 = 0 ……. (1)

2x – 5y + 3 = 0 ….. (2)

5x – 9y + k = 0 …….. (3)

Solve (1) and (2)

⇒

⇒ x = 1, y = 1

point of intersection of (1) and (2) is (1,1),

⇒ (1, 1) lies on (3) = 5 – 9 + k = 0 = k = 4

Angle between the lines, Length of perpendicular

Question 1.

Find the angle between the lines 2x + 3y – 4 = 0 and 3x – 2y + 5 =0

Answer:

By data

2x + 3y – 4 = 0 … (1)

3x – 2y + 5 = 0 …… (2)

∴ Slope of (1) = = m_{1}

∴ the angle between the lines is 90°

Question 2.

Determine the position of the points (2, 1) and (-1, 1) w.r.t the line 4x – ly + 1 = 0.

Answer:

4(2) -7(1) = -7 + 1 = 2 > 0

4( -1) – 7(1) = – 4 – 7 + 2 = -10 < 0

Since the two points are opposite in sign the two points lie an either sides of the given line 4x – 7y + 1 = 0

Question 3.

If points (9,8) and (-3,3) are equidistant from the line 5x + 2y + 7 = 0 find ‘a’.

Answer:

Distance from (a, 8) to the line 5x + 2y + 7 = 0

Given that the distance are equal

⇒ 5a + 23 = 2

or

5a + 23 = -2

⇒ a = and a = -5
