Using distance formula, find which of them is correct.
Question 6. Name the type of quadrilateral formed, if any, by the following points, and give reasons for your answer:
(i) (-1, -2), (1, 0), (-1, 2), (-3, 0)
(ii) (-3, 5), (3, 1), (0, 3), (-1, -4)
iii) (4,5) ,(7,6), (4,3) (1,2)
Question 7. Find the point on  the x-axis which is equidistant from (2, –5) and (–2, 9).
Question 8. . Find the values of y for which the distance between the points P(2, – 3) and Q(10, y) is 10 units
Question 9. . If Q(0, 1) is equidistant from P(5, –3) and R(x, 6), find the values of x. Also find the distances QR and PR.
Question 10. Find a relation between x and y such that the point (x, y) is equidistant from the point
(3, 6) and (– 3, 4).
Solution 1:
Distance between the points AB is given by
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry Exercise 7.1
Solution 2:
Let P(0,0)  and Q(36,15)  be the given points.
Distance between the points PQ is given b
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry Exercise 7.1
The position of town A and B can be represented as points P and Q respectively,So distance between town will be 39 km
Solution3:
Lets us denote point by P(1,5) , Q(2,3)  and R(-2,-11)
If the points are not collinear, then we should be able to form the triangle
Lets us find the length of PQ, QR and PR  by distance formula
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry Exercise 7.1
Clearly  None of these is true
PQ+QR=PR
PR+PQ=QR
PQ=QR+PR
Hence  they are not collinear


Solution 4)
Lets us denote point by P(5,-2) , Q(6,4)  and R(7,-2)
Lets us find the length of PQ, QR and PR  by distance formula
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry Exercise 7.1
Now PQ =QR  ,so it is an isosceles triangle
Solution 5)
As per the figure given,The coordinates of the points A,B,C and D  are (3,4), (6,7) ,(9,4)  and (6,1)
Lets us find the length of AB, BC ,CD  and AD by distance formula
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry Exercise 7.1
So all the sides are equal. But we cannot  still say that it is square as rhombus has all  the sides  equal also.
Now we know that a square has both the diagonal equal also,So lets us calculate the diagonal’s
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry Exercise 7.1
Hence AC=BD
So it is a square.
So  champa is correct
Solution 6)
In these type of problem, we need to find of length of each segment, then check with the properties of different type of quadrilateral
i.e for points A,B,C and D
Line segments are AB,BC,AC,CD,AD  and  BD
We need to find the length of each of these
i) (– 1, – 2), (1, 0), (– 1, 2), (– 3, 0)

Here the side AB,BC,CD and AD are equal and diagonal AC and BD are equal. So this is a square
ii)  (–3, 5), (3, 1), (0, 3), (–1, – 4)
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry
Now here  AC+BC=AB
So  that means ABC are collinear points.
So it is not a quadrilateral infact
iii) (4,5) ,(7,6), (4,3) (1,2)
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry Exercise 7.1
Now AB=CD  and BC=DA
Now it could be rectangle or parallelogram
But diagonal  AC is not equal diagonal  BD
So It is a parallelogram
Solution 7:
Since the point lies on X axis, the point should be of the form (a,0)
Now (a,0) is equidistant from  both the given points
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry Exercise 7.1
Squaring both the sides
(x-2)2 + (0+5)2 =(x+2)2 + (0-9)2
Solving it  we get
x=-7
Solution 8:
Acoording to the question
PQ=10
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry Exercise 7.1
Squaring both the sides
 y2 +6y-27=0
(y+9)(y-3)=0
So y=-9 or 3
Solution   9:
Now
QP=QR
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry
Squaring both the sides
25+16=x2 +25
x= -4 or 4
So point  R is either (4,6)  or (-4,6)
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry
Solution: 10
Let the point P(x,y) is equidistant from the point Q( 3,6)  and R(-3,4)
PQ=PR
NCERT Solutions  for Class 10 Maths Chapter 7:Coordinate Geometry
Squaring both the sides
x2  -6x+9 +y2-12y +36=x2 +6x+9 +y2 -8y+16
-12x-4y+20=0
Or
3x+y-5=0  ( dividing by -4)
