Solutions

Chapter 1, Problem 99RE

a.

To determine

Plot the points on coordinate plane.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 99RE

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 1, Problem 99RE , additional homework tip  1

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given points are, P(2,0),Q(5,12) .

Calculation:

Consider the given points,

  P(2,0),Q(5,12)

Now plot the points on coordinate plane.

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 1, Problem 99RE , additional homework tip  2

Hence, the points are plotted.

b.

To determine

Find the distance between the points.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 99RE

  d=193 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given points are, P(2,0),Q(5,12) .

Calculation:

Consider the given points,

  P(2,0),Q(5,12)

Now apply distance formula,

  d=(x2x1)2+(y2y1)2d=(52)2+(120)2=(7)2+(12)2=49+144d=193

Hence, the distance between the points is d=193 .

c.

To determine

Find the midpoint of line segment PQ.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 99RE

  3/2,6 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given points are, P(2,0),Q(5,12) .

Calculation:

Consider the given points,

  P(2,0),Q(5,12)

Now apply midpoint formula for points (x1,y1),(x2,y2) ,

  x=x1+x22,y=y1+y22x=252,y=0+122x=3/2,y=6

Hence, midpoints are 3/2,6 .

d.

To determine

Find the equation in slope-intercept form.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 99RE

  y=(127)x247 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given points are, P(2,0),Q(5,12) .

Calculation:

Consider the given points,

  P(2,0),Q(5,12)

Line plotted between the points,

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 1, Problem 99RE , additional homework tip  3

Now find slope of line to calculate the equation in slope-intercept form.

  y=mx+bm=y2y1x2x1=12052m=127

To find yintercept line passes through points (2,0) .

  y=127x+b0=127×2+bb=247[y=mx+b]y=(127)x247

Hence, the equation in slope-intercept form is, y=(127)x247

e.

To determine

Find the equation of this circle and draw the circle.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 99RE

  (x2)2+(y)2=193

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 1, Problem 99RE , additional homework tip  4

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given points are, P(2,0),Q(5,12) .

Calculation:

Consider the given points,

  P(2,0),Q(5,12)

The standard formula for circle has radius r centred at (a,b) centred point (2,0) circle passes through the points (5,12) is,

Radius equal to distance between two points, r=193

  (xa)2+(yb)2=r2r=193a=2,b=0now,putthevalues,(x2)2+(y)2=193

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 1, Problem 99RE , additional homework tip  5

Hence, the equation of circle is (x2)2+(y)2=193 .
