Introduction to Three Dimensional Geometry Short Answer Type Questions

Question 1.
Prove that the points (- 2, 3, 5) (1, 2, 3) and (7, 0, – 1) are collinear. (NCERT)
Solution:
Given point are A (- 2, 3, 5), B(1, 2, 3) and C (7, 0, – 1). Hence points A, B, Care collinear.

Question 2.
Find the co – ordinates of the point which divides the line segment joining the points (- 2, 3, 5) and (1, – 4, 6) in the ratio 2 : 3 internally. (NCERT)
Solution:
Required co – ordinates are : Question 3.
Given that P (3, 2, – 4), Q (5, 4, – 6) and R (9, 8, – 10) are collinear. Find the ratio in which Q divides PR. (NCERT)
Solution: ⇒ 5k + 5 = 9k + 3
⇒ 4k = 2
⇒ k = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$
Hence, point Q divides PR internally in ratio 1 : 2.

Question 4.
Find the ratio in which the YZ – plane divides the line segment formed by joining the points (- 2, 4, 7) and (3, – 5, 8).
Solution:
Let the point R (0, y, z) on YZ – plane divides the points P (- 2, 4, 7) and Q (3, – 5, 8) in the ratio m : n.
x = $$\frac{m x_{2}+n x_{1}}{m+n}$$
⇒ 0 = $$\frac { m × 3 + n( – 2) }{ m + n }$$
⇒ 3m – 2n = 0
⇒ 3m = 2n
⇒ $$\frac { m }{ n }$$ = $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$
⇒ m : n = 2 : 3
YZ – plane divides the line PQ internally in ratio 2:3. Question 5.

Solution:
Let A (0, y, 0) be any point on Y – axis.
Given : PA = 5$$\sqrt {2}$$
PA2 = 50
⇒ (3 – 0)2 + (- 2 – y)2 + (5 – 0)2 = 50
⇒ 9 + 4 + y2 + 4y + 25 = 50
⇒ y2 + 4y + 38 – 50 = 0
⇒ y2 + 4y – 12 = 0
⇒ y2 + 6y – 2y – 12 = 0
⇒ y(y + 6) – 2(y + 6) = 0
⇒ (y – 2)(y + 6) = 0
⇒ y = 2, – 6
The co – ordinate on Y – axis is (0, 2, 0) or (0, – 6, 0).

Question 7.
A point R with x co – ordinate 4 lies on the line segment joining the points P (2, – 3, 4) and Q (8, 0, 10). Find the co – ordinate of the point R.
Solution:

Question 8.
Find the equation of set of points which are equidistant from the points (1, 2, 3) and (3, 2, – 1). (NCERT)
Solution:
Let point P (x, y, z) be equidistant from points A (1, 2, 3) and B (3, 2, – 1).
∴ PA = PB ⇒ PA2 = PB2
⇒ (x – 1)2 + (y – 2)2 + (z – 3)2 = (x – 3)2 + (y – 2)2 + (z +1)2
⇒ x2 – 2x + 1 + z2 – 6z + 9
– 2x – 6z + 10 = – 6x + 2z + 10
⇒ 4x – 8z = 0
⇒ x – 2z = 0.
This is the required equation. Question 9.
In which ratio the point (1, 1, 1) divides the line joining the points (3, – 2, 4) and (- 1, 4, 2)?
Solution:
Let point R (1,1,1), divides the line joining the points P (3, – 2, 4) and Q(- 1, 4, 2) in ratio λ : 1.
By formula:
x = $$\frac{m x_{2}+n x_{1}}{m+n}$$
Here x1 = 3, x2 = – 1, x = 1, m = λ and n = 1.
∴ 1 = $$\frac { λ(- 1) + 1 × 3 }{ λ + 1}$$
⇒ λ + 1 = – λ + 3
⇒ 2λ = 2
∴ λ = 1
Hence, required ratio is 1 : 1.
