1 NOTES COORDINATE GEOMETRY 1. If A(x 1, y 1 ) and B(x, y ) are two points then AB = (x x ) (y y ) 1 1 mx nx1 my ny1. If P divides AB in the ratio m : n then P =, m n m n. x1 x y1 y 3. Mix point of AB is,. 4. A(x 1, y 1 ), B(x, y ), C(x 3, y 3 ) are the vertices of a triangle ABC then the centroid G = x1 x x3 y1 y y3, The line joining a vertex of a triangle to the mid point of the opposite side is called a median. The medians of a triangle are meeting at a point, called the centroid G of the triangle. y y1 6. The slope of the line joining the points (x 1, y 1 ) and (x, y ) is m =. x x 1 7. If a line makes an angle with the positive X-axis in the positive direction, then its slope m = tan. a 8. The slope of the line ax + by + c = 0 is m = (if b 0) b 9. Let m 1 and m be the slopes of two nonvertical lines L 1 and L. If L 1 L then m 1 = m and if L 1 L then m 1 m = The equation the line with slope m and intercept on Y axis as c is y = mx + c. 11. The equation of the line passing through (x 1, y 1 ) and having slope m is y y 1 = m(x x 1 ). 1. The equation of the line passing through two points (x 1, y 1 ) and (x, y ) is (x x 1 )(y y 1 ) = (y y 1 )(x x 1 ) 13. If a line makes intercepts a and b on the coordinate axes, then its equation is x y = The area of the triangle formed by the line x y 1 = 1 with the coordinate axes is ab. 15. The general form of the equation of a line is ax + by + c = 0 (a + b 0). 16. Slope of X - axis is 0 ; Slope of a horizontal line is 0 Slope of Y axis is not defined Slope of a vertical line is not defined 17. Equation of X axis is y = 0. Equation of the horizontal line passing through (h, k) is y = k. Equation o f Y axis is x = 0. Equation of the vertical line passing through (h, k) is x = h. 18. To find the point of intersection of two lines, solve the two equations for x and y. If three lines are meeting at one point then the lines are concurrent and the point is called the point of concurrence of the three lines. 19. The equation of a line parallel to ax + by + c = 0 is in the form ax + by + K = The equation of a line perpendicular to ax + by + c = 0 is in the form bx ay + K = 0. Mathiit learning Pvt Ltd 36
