15. A point on the y axis which is equidistant from the points A (6, 5) and

B (-4, 3) is —————-

A. y = 8

B. y = 9

C. y = 10

### ANSWERS:

1. Abscissa

2. Ordinate

3. (x, 0)

4. (0, y)

5. Straight line

6. Parabola

7. x – y =2 (Use distance formula)

8. 24. (Use the formula for Area)

9. k = 0

Since the given points are collinear the area of the triangle formed by them must be zero.

½ [2(k +3) + 4(-3-3) + 6(3 –k)] = 0

½ [-4k] = 0

k = 0

10. 10 (Use distance formula)

11. Square

Let A (1, 7), B (4, 2) C (-1, 1) and D (-4, 4) be the given points. Using distance formula, find the length of the sides AB, BC, CD, AD and diagonals AC and BD.

All the four sides of the quadrilateral ABCD are equal and its diagonal AC and BD are also equal. Therefore, ABCD is a square.

12. Isosceles triangle

13. 5

14. Right triangle

15. y = 9

A point on the y axis is of the form (0, y). So let the point P (0, y) is equidistant from A and B. Then find the distance between (0, y), (6, 5) and (0, y), (-4, 3) then equate.
