Equation of a line (Two points)
The equation of a line can be expressed in the form where m is the gradient of the line and c is the y intercept. Given two sets of coordinates, we can place them into a formula to extract the equation of the line they are on. This formula is Use both sets of coordinates to find out the gradient Use one set of coordinates in place of y1 and x1 along with the newly found gradient (m) to form the equation for the line. Note that some rearranging of the formula is required to get it into the form Exercise pages 222 (Theta) L2 Coordinate Geometry M.Guttormson

Terms for excellence Circumcenter
Collinear: Points that are on the same straight line. Perpendicular bisector: The perpendicular bisector of a triangle is a straight line passing through the midpoint of a side and being perpendicular to it. Circumcenter: Three perpendicular bisectors meet in a single point called the triangles circumcenter. Altitude: An altitude of a triangle is a straight line through a vertex and perpendicular to the opposite side. Orthocenter: The three altitudes of a triangle intersect in a single point, called the orthocenter of the triangle. The orthocenter lies inside the triangle.

Goat Fences Questions 1. Are the fences parallel? Explain why or why not. 2. The cost of fencing is \$2.50 per metre. How much will it cost to build the two fences? An irrigation channel EF is perpendicular (at right angles) to fence AB and passes through its midpoint. What is the equation of the line that represents the irrigation channel What are the coordinates where the irrigation channel and the fence CD intersect? L2 Coordinate Geometry M.Guttormson

Game park questions QUESTION ONE
(a) Calculate the distance between the points (5,-1) and (3,4). (b) Find the equation of the line joining the points (5, -1) and (3,4). QUESTION TWO Find the equation of the line that is perpendicular to the line and passes through the point (6,-3). QUESTION THREE A large animal game park is set up on a grid system with the entrance at E (0,0) with north in the direction of the positive y-axis. There is a lion at the point L (3,6). The watering hole is at the point W (7,8) (a) The lion starts walking in a straight line from its position at L towards the watering hole at point W. When it is halfway between L and W, it turns at right angles to the line LW. Find the equation of the line the lion is now walking on, i.e. find the equation of the perpendicular bisector of the line LW. (b) A helicopter later sights the lion at point (8,1). At this point the lion is km from a zebra that is directly east of the watering hole at W. Find the co-ordinates of the zebra. L2 Coordinate Geometry M.Guttormson

Game park Questions QUESTION FOUR
Prove that the point A (3,5), B(7,13) and C(17,33) are collinear. Plotting points is NOT sufficient. QUESTION FIVE The altitudes of a triangle intersect at a point called orthocentre. Find the coordinates of the orthocentre, O, of the triangle WXY where the vertices of the triangle are W (-3,-3), X(5,-3) and Y(1,5). Plotting points is NOT sufficient.
