Question # 2
Since (8,6)
A
, (4,2)
B

and (2,6)
C
 
are vertices of triangle therefore
(i)
Slope of side

(ii)
Let ,
D E
and
F
are midpoints of sides
AB
,
BC
and
CA
respectively.

Question # 3
(a)
Let (1,3)
A
 
, (1,5)
B
and (2,9)
C
be given pointsSlope of 5384112
AB
+= = =+
Slope of 9544211
BC
= = =
Since slope of
AB
=
slope of
BC
Therefore ,
A B
and
C
lie on the same line.
(b) & (c)
Do yourself as above
(d)
Let (,2),(,)

Slope of 2()2(2)2
a a b a a b a b BC c a c c a c c a

Therefore ,
A B
and
C
lie on the same line.
