  1. ML Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Chapter 12 - 14Given, A (2, – 4), B (3, 3) and C (– 1, 5) are the vertices of triangle ABC

    (i) D is the mid-point of BC

    So, the co-ordinates of D will be

    ((3 – 1)/2, (3 + 5)/2) = (2/2, 8/2) = (1, 4)

    Now,

    The slope of AC (m1) = (5 + 4)/ (-1 – 2) = 9/-3 = -3

    Let the slope of BE be m2

    Then, m1 x m2 = -1

    -3 x m2 = -1

    m2 = 1/3

    so, the equation of BE will be

    y – 3 = 1/3 (x – 3)

    3y – 9 = x – 3

    x – 3y + 6 = 0

    Thus, the required line equation is x – 3y + 6 = 0.
