(2,1) and (3, –2). The third vertex is (*x*, *y*) where *y* = *x*
+ 3 . Find the coordinates of the third vertex.

3. Find the area of a triangle formed by the lines 3*x* + *y*
− 2 = 0 , 5*x* + 2*y* − 3 = 0 and 2*x* − *y* − 3 = 0

4. If vertices of a quadrilateral are at *A*(-5, 7) , *B*
(-4, *k*) , *C*(- 1, -6) and *D*(4, 5) and its area is 72
sq.units. Find the value of *k*.

5. Without using distance formula, show that the points (- 2, -1)
, (4, 0) , (3, 3) and (-3, 2) are vertices of a parallelogram.

6. Find the equations of the lines, whose sum and product of
intercepts are 1 and –6 respectively.

7. The owner of a milk store finds that, he can sell 980 litres of
milk each week at ₹14/litre and 1220 litres of milk each week at ₹16/litre.
Assuming a linear relationship between selling price and demand, how many
litres could he sell weekly at ₹17/litre?

8. Find the image of the point (3,8) with respect to the line *x*
+ 3*y* = 7 assuming the line to be a plane mirror.

intersection of the lines 4*x* + 7*y* − 3 = 0 and 2*x* − 3*y*
+ 1 = 0 that has equal intercepts on the axes.

10. A person standing at a junction (crossing) of two straight
paths represented by the equations 2*x* − 3*y* + 4 = 0 and 3*x*
+ 4*y* − 5 = 0 seek to reach the path whose equation is 6*x* − 7*y*
+ 8 = 0 in the least time. Find the equation of the path that he should follow.
