Distance Formula
Let A( x1 , y1 ) and B( x2 , y2 ) be two points in a
plane and d be a distance between A and B
then

Question # 11
Find h such that the quadrilateral with vertices A ( −3,0 ) , B (1, −2, ) C ( 5,0 ) and
D (1, h ) is parallelogram. Is it a square?
Solution
Given: A ( −3,0 ) , B (1, −2 ) , C ( 5,0 ) , D (1, h )
Quadrilateral ABCD is a parallelogram if

FSC-II / Ex. 4.1 - 8
⇒ 16 + 4 = 16 + h 2 ⇒ 20 = 16 + h 2
On squaring
20 = 16 + h 2 ⇒ h 2 = 20 − 16 ⇒ h 2 = 4
When h = 2 , then D(1, h) = D (1, 2)
Then
AB =
(1 + 3) 2 + (−2 − 0) 2 =
BC =
(5 − 1)2 + (0 + 2) 2 =
16 + 4 =
CA =
(1 − 5)2 + (2 − 0) 2 =

DA = (−3 − 1)2 + (−0 − 2)2 = 16 + 4 =
Now for diagonals
AC =

⇒ h = &plusmn;2
20
64 + 0 = 8
BD = (1 − 1) 2 + (2 + 2)2 = 0 + 16 = 4
Since all sides are equal but diagonals AC ≠ BD
Therefore ABCD is not a square.
Now when h = −2 , then D(1, h) = D(1, −2) but we also have B(1, −2)
i.e. B and D represents the same point, which can not happened in quadrilateral
so we can not take h = −2 .
Question # 12
If two vertices of an equilateral triangle are A ( −3,0 ) and B ( 3,0 ) , find the third
vertex. How many of these triangles are possible?
Solution
Given: A ( −3,0 ) , B ( 3,0 )
Let C ( x, y ) be a third vertex of an equilateral triangle ABC .
Then
AB = BC = CA
⇒
(3 + 3)2 + (0 − 0) 2 =
( x − 3) 2 + ( y − 0) 2 =
( x + 3) 2 + ( y − 0) 2
⇒ 36 + 0 = x 2 − 6 x + 9 + y 2 = x 2 + 6 x + 9 + y 2
On squaring
36 = x 2 + y 2 − 6 x + 9 = x 2 + y 2 + 6 x + 9 ............(i )
From equation (i)
x2 + y2 − 6x + 9 = x2 + y2 + 6x + 9
C
A
B
⇒ x + y − 6x + 9 − x − y − 6x − 9 = 0
⇒ − 12 x = 0 ⇒ x = 0
Again from equation (i)
36 = x 2 + y 2 − 6 x + 9
2
2
2
2
⇒ 36 = (0) 2 + y 2 − 6(0) + 9
∵ x=0
⇒ 36 = y 2 + 9 ⇒ y 2 = 36 − 9 = 27
(

⇒ y = &plusmn;3 3

so coordinate of C is 0,3 3 or 0, −3 3 .

Question # 16
Find the point which is equidistant from the points A ( 5,3) , B ( 2, −2 ) and C ( 4, 2 ) .
What is the radius of the circumcircle of the ∆ABC ?
Solution
Given: A ( 5,3) , B ( −2,2 ) and C ( 4,2 )
Let D ( x, y ) be a point equidistance from A , B and C then
DA = DB = DC
⇒ DA
2
= DB
2
= DC
2
⇒ ( x − 5) 2 + ( y − 3) 2 = ( x + 2) 2 + ( y − 2)2 = ( x − 4) 2 + ( y − 2)2 …….. (i)
From eq. (i)
( x − 5) 2 + ( y − 3) 2 = ( x + 2)2 + ( y − 2) 2
⇒ x 2 − 10 x + 25 + y 2 − 6 y + 9 = x 2 + 4 x + 4 + y 2 − 4 y + 4
⇒ x 2 − 10 x + 25 + y 2 − 6 y + 9 − x 2 − 4 x − 4 − y 2 + 4 y − 4 = 0
⇒ − 14 x − 2 y + 26 = 0 ⇒ 7 x + y − 13 = 0 ……… (ii)
Again from equation (i)
( x + 2)2 + ( y − 2) 2 = ( x − 4)2 + ( y − 2) 2

⇒ x 2 + 4 x + 4 + y 2 − 4 y + 4 = x 2 − 8 x + 16 + y 2 − 4 y + 4
⇒ 12 x − 12 = 0 ⇒ 12 x = 12
⇒ x =1
Put x = 1 in eq. (ii)
7(1) + y − 13 = 0
⇒ y −6 = 0
⇒ y = 6
Hence (1,6 ) is required point.
Now radius of circumcircle = DA

(5 − 1)2 + (3 − 6)2 =

Intersection of Median
Let A ( x1 , y1 ) , B ( x2 , y2 ) and C ( x3 , y3 ) are vertices of triangle.
Intersection of median is called centroid of triangle and can be determined as
