Solution of missingVertex Question3

In this page solution of missingvertex question3 we are going to see he detailed solution of the first question.

Question 1 :

Find the missing vertex of triangle whose two vertices are (-3,-9) (-1,6) and its centroid is (-1/3 , 2 )



(A) (1 , -2)
(B) (3 , 9)
(C) (1 , -5)




Question 2 :

Find the missing vertex of triangle whose two vertices are (-3,-9) (5,-8) and its centroid is (5/3 , -8/3 )



(A) (1 , -2)
(B) (3 , 9)
(C) (1 , -5)




Question 3 :

Find the missing vertex of triangle whose two vertices are (4,5) (4,2) and its centroid is (2 , 3 )

Solution:

Centroid of a triangle = (x₁+x₂+x₃)/3, (y₁+y₂+y₃)/3

let A,B and C be the vertices of triangle ABC. Here A (4, 5), B (4,2) and let us take the third missing vertex be (a,b).

x₁ = 4           x₂ = 4             x₃ = a 

y₁ = 5           y₂ = 2             y₃ = b

(2, 3) =  [ 4 + 4 + a ]/3 , [ 5 + 2 + b ]/3

(2 , 3) =  [8 + a ]/3 , [ 7 + b ]/3

(2 , 3) =  [8 + a ]/3 , [7 + b ]/3

Equating x and y coordinates

[8 + a ]/3 = 2              [ 7 + b ]/3  = 3

8 + a = 2 x 3                      7 + b = 3 x 3

8 + a = 6                             7 + b = 9

         a = 6 - 8                          b = 9 - 7

          a = -2                                  b = 2 

Therefore the third vertex is (-2,2).


Question 4 :

Find the missing vertex of triangle whose two vertices are (3,1) (2,2) and its centroid is (7/3 , 1 )



(A) (-2 , 1)
(B) (2 , 6)

Question 5 :

Find the missing vertex of triangle whose two vertices are (3,1) (0,4) and its centroid is (0 , 2 )



(A) (-2 , 0)
(B) (-3 , 1)
(C) (-1 , 2)

(A) (-3 , 4)
(B) (2 , -4)
(C) (1 , 4)




Question 8 :

Find the missing vertex of triangle whose two vertices are (1,1) (2,3) and its centroid is (-1/3 , 2 )
