  1. ML Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Chapter 12 - 10

    Given, points A and B are on x-axis and y-axis respectively

    Let co-ordinates of A be (x, 0) and of B be (0, y)

    And P (2, -3) is the midpoint of AB

    So, we have

    2 = (x + 0)/2 and -3 = (0 + y)/2

    x = 4 and y = -6

    (i) Hence, the co-ordinates of A are (4, 0) and of B are (0, -6).

    (ii) Slope of AB = y2 – y1/ x2 – x1

    = (-6 – 0)/ (0 – 4)

    = -6/-4 = 3/2 = m

    (iii) Equation of AB will be

    y – y1 = m (x – x1)

    y – (-3) = 3/2 (x – 2) [As P lies on it]

    y + 3 = 3/2 (x – 2)

    2y + 6 = 3x – 6

    3x – 2y – 12 = 0
