**1. Find the distances with the help of the number line given below.**

**(i) d(B,E) **

**(ii) d(J, A) **

**(iii) d(P, C) **

**(iv) d(J, H)**

**(v) d(K, O) **

**(vi) d(O, E) **

**(vii) d(P, J) **

**(viii) d(Q, B)**

**Solution:**

(i)The co-ordinates of B and E are 2 and 5 respectively.

The distance between two points is obtained by subtracting the smaller co-ordinate from the larger co-ordinate.

We know that 52.

Distance between B and E , d(B,E) = 5-2 = 3

Hence d(B,E) = 3.

(ii)The co-ordinates of J and A are -2 and 1 respectively.

The distance between two points is obtained by subtracting the smaller co-ordinate from the larger co-ordinate.

We know that 1-2.

Distance between J and A , d(J,A) = 1-(-2) =1+2 = 3

Hence d(J,A) = 3.

(iii)The co-ordinates of P and C are -4 and 3 respectively.

The distance between two points is obtained by subtracting the smaller co-ordinate from the larger co-ordinate.

We know that 3-4.

Distance between P and C , d(P,C) = 3-(-4) =3+4 = 7

Hence d(P,C) = 7.

(iv) The co-ordinates of J and H are -2 and -1 respectively.

We know that -1-2.

Distance between J and H , d(J,H) = -1-(-2) = -1+2 = 1

Hence d(J,H) = 1.

(v) The co-ordinates of K and O are -3 and 0 respectively.

We know that 0-3.

Distance between K and O , d(K,O) = 0-(-3) = 0+3 = 3

Hence d(K,O) = 3.

(vi) The co-ordinates of O and E are 0 and 5 respectively.

We know that 50.

Distance between O and E , d(O,E) = 5-0 = 5

Hence d(O,E) = 5.

(vii) The co-ordinates of P and J are -4 and -2 respectively.

We know that -2-4.

Distance between P and J , d(P,J) = -2-(-4) = -2+4 = 2

Hence d(P,J) = 2.

(viii) The co-ordinates of Q and B are -5 and 2 respectively.

We know that 2-5.

Distance between Q and B , d(Q,B) = 2-(-5) = 2+5 = 7

Hence d(Q,B) = 7.

**2. If the co-ordinate of A is x and that of B is y, find d(A, B) . **

**(i) x = 1, y = 7 **

**(ii) x = 6, y = – 2 **

**(iii) x = – 3, y = 7 **

**(iv) x = – 4, y = – 5 **

**(v) x = – 3, y = – 6 **

**(vi) x = 4, y = – 8**

**Solution:**

(i)Co-ordinate of A = 1

Co-ordinate of B = 7

∵71 , d(A,B) = 7-1 = 6.

Hence d(A,B) is 6.

(ii)Co-ordinate of A = 6

Co-ordinate of B = -2

∵6-2 , d(A,B) = 6-(-2) = 6+2 = 8.

Hence d(A,B) is 8.

(iii)Co-ordinate of A = -3

Co-ordinate of B = 7

∵7-3 , d(A,B) = 7-(-3) = 7+3 = 10.

Hence d(A,B) is 10.

(iv)Co-ordinate of A = -4

Co-ordinate of B = -5

∵-4-5 , d(A,B) = -4-(-5) = -4+5 = 1

Hence d(A,B) is 1.

(v)Co-ordinate of A = -3

Co-ordinate of B = -6

∵-3-6 , d(A,B) = -3-(-6) = -3+6 = 3.

Hence d(A,B) is 3.

(vi)Co-ordinate of A = 4

Co-ordinate of B = -8

∵4-8 , d(A,B) = 4-(-8) = 4+8 = 12.

Hence d(A,B) is 12.

**3. From the information given below, find which of the point is between the other two. If the points are not collinear, state so.**

**(i) d(P, R) = 7, d(P, Q) = 10, d(Q, R) = 3**

**(ii) d(R, S) = 8, d(S, T) = 6, d(R, T) = 4 **

**(iii) d(A, B) = 16, d(C, A) = 9, d(B, C) = 7**

**Solution:**

(i)Given d(P, R) = 7

d(P, Q) = 10

d(Q, R) = 3

d(P,Q) = 10 …….(i)

d(P, R)+ d(Q, R) = 7+3 = 10……(ii)

d(P,Q) = d(P, R)+ d(Q, R) [from (i) and (ii)]

The points P,Q and R are collinear.

Hence R is the point between P and Q.

(ii)Given d(R, S) = 8

d(S, T) = 6

d(R, T) = 4

d(R, S) = 8 …….(i)

d(S, T) +d(R, T) = 6+4 = 10…….(ii)

d(R, S) ≠ d(S, T) +d(R, T) [from (i) and (ii)]

The points R,S and T are not collinear.

(iii) Given d(A, B) = 16

d(C, A) = 9

d(B, C) = 7

d(A, B) = 16…….(i)

d(C, A)+ d(A, B) = 9+7 = 16 …..(ii)

d(A, B) = d(C, A)+ d(A, B) [from (i) and (ii)]

The points A,B and C are collinear.

Hence A is the point between B and C.

**4. On a number line, points A, B and C are such that d(A,C) = 10, d(C,B) = 8 Find d(A, B) considering all possibilities.**

**Solution:**

Case 1: C lies between A and B. ie A-C-B

d(A,C) = 10

d(C,B) = 8

d(A,B) = d(A,C)+d(C,B)

d(A,B) = 10+8 = 18

Case2: B lies between A and C. ie A-B-C

d(A,C) = 10

d(C,B) = 8

d(A,B) = d(A,C)-d(C,B)

d(A,B) = 10-8 = 2.

Case3:A lies between B and C . ie B-A-C

Since d(A,C)d(C,B) , A cannot lie in between B and C.

**5. Points X, Y, Z are collinear such that d(X,Y) = 17, d(Y,Z) = 8, find d(X,Z) .**

**Solution:**

Case1: Y lies between X and Z.

d(X,Y) = 17, d(Y,Z) = 8

d(X,Z) = d(X,Y)+d(Y,Z) = 17+8 = 25

Hence d(X,Z) = 25.

Case 2:Z lies between X and Y

d(X,Z) = d(X,Y)-d(Y,Z) = 17-8 = 9

Hence d(X,Z) = 9

Case3:X lies between Y and Z

Since d(X,Y)d(Y,Z) , X cannot lie in between Y and Z.

**6. Sketch proper figure and write the answers of the following questions.**

** (i) If A – B – C and l(AC) = 11, l(BC) = 6.5, then**

*l*

**(AB) =?**

**(ii) If R – S – T and l(ST) = 3.7, l(RS) = 2.5, then l(RT) =?**

**(iii) If X – Y – Z and l(XZ) = 3√7 , l(XY) = √7 , then l(YZ) =?**

**Solution:**

(i)Given * l*(AC) = 11, *l*(BC) = 6.5

* l*(AB) = *l*(AC)-* l*(BC) [A-B-C]

= 11-6.5 = 4.5

Hence *l*(AB) = 4.5

(ii) Given * l*(ST) = 3.7, *l*(RS) = 2.5

* l*(RT) = *l*(ST)+*l*(RS) [R-S-T]

= 3.7+2.5= 6.2

Hence *l*(RT) = 6.2

(iii) Given * l*(XZ) = 3√7 , *l*(XY) = √7

* l*(YZ) = *l*(XZ)-*l*(XY) [X-Y-Z]

= 3√7 -√7

= 2√7

Hence *l*(YZ) = 2√7

A triangle is formed by joining three non – collinear points.

**Practice Set 1.2 Page 7**

**1.The following table shows points on a number line and their co-ordinates. Decide whether the pair of segments given below the table are congruent or not.**

**(i) seg DE and seg AB (ii) seg BC and seg AD**

**(ii) seg BC and seg AD**

**(iii) seg BE and seg AD**

**Solutions:**

(i) Co-ordinate of D = -7

Co-ordinate of E = 9

d(D,E) = 9-(-7) = 9+7 = 16 [∵9-7]

Co-ordinate of A = -3

Co-ordinate of B = 5

d(A,B) = 5-(-3) = 5+3 = 8 [∵5-3]

If the length of two segments is equal then the two segments are congruent.

Here d(D,E) ≠ d(A,B)

seg DE and seg AB are not congruent.

(ii) Co-ordinate of B = 5

Co-ordinate of C = 2

d(B,C) = 5-2 = 3 [∵52]

Co-ordinate of A = -3

Co-ordinate of D = -7

d(A,D) = -3-(-7) = -3+7 = 4 [∵-3-7]

If the length of two segments is equal then the two segments are congruent.

Here d(B,C) ≠ d(A,D)

seg BC and seg AD are not congruent.

**2. Point M is the midpoint of seg AB. If AB = 8 then find the length of AM.**

**Solution:**

If M is the midpoint of AB ,then seg AM seg MB.

Given AB = 8

AM = (1/2)AB = 8/2 = 4.

Hence AM is 4 units.

**3. Point P is the midpoint of seg CD. If CP = 2.5, find l(CD).**

**Solution:**

If P is the midpoint of CD ,then seg CP seg PD.

Given CP = 2.5

PD = 2.5

CD = CP+PD = 2.5+2.5 = 5

Hence *l*(CD) is 5 units.

**4. If AB = 5 cm, BP = 2 cm and AP = 3.4 cm, compare the segments.**

**Solution:**

If length of segment AB is less than the length of segment CD, it is written as seg AB < seg CD or seg CD > seg AB.

Given AB = 5 cm, BP = 2 cm and AP = 3.4 cm

53.42

seg AB seg AP seg BP

Co-ordinate of P = 3

Co-ordinate of Q = -5

Here 3-5

d(P,Q) = 3-(-5) = 3+5 = 8………(ii)

Co-ordinate of Q = -5

Co-ordinate of R = 6

Here 6-5

d(Q,R) = 6-(-5) = 6+5 = 11………(iii)

(i) d(P,Q) + d(Q,R) = 8+11

= 17 ≠ d(P,R) [from (i)]

Hence statement is False.

(ii) d(P,R) + d(R,Q) = 3+11

= 14 ≠ d(P,Q) [from (ii)]

Hence statement is False.

(iii) d(R,P) + d(P,Q) = 3+8

Given d(A,C) = 17

d(B,C) = 6.5

d(A,C) = d(A,B)+d(B,C) [A – B – C]

d(A,B) = d(A,C) – d(B,C)

=17-6.5 = 10.5

Hence d(A,B) is 10.5 units.

**6. Co-ordinate of point A on a number line is 1. What are the co-ordinates of points on the number line which are at a distance of 7 units from A ?**

**Solution:**
