the points A (1, 7) B (20, 7) C (p, q) form the vertices of a triangle ABC. the point D (8, 2) is the midpoint of AC.

a) find the value of p and q

the line L passes through D and is perpendicular to AC intersects AB at E.

b) find an equation for L

c) find the exact x coordinate of E

help will be much appreciated!

15,-3

y=14/10 x + 6.6

x=0.4/1.4

coudl you check the mark scheme pls if theyre right ill write out my method

i would if i had the markschemes lol. but if u look at the diagram i posted in the previous post, it doesnt seem like 15,-3 cud be the coordinates

D is the midpoint of AC

A --> D is, move 7 along x axis, 5 down y axis.

therefore

D --> C must be the same process, since it's the midpoint. 7 along, 5 down, and you reach 15,-3

EDIT: in fact if you look at your diagram, your line AD is longer than DC, if you make DC the same length it fits to 15,-3 exactly xD

a) use the midpoint formula (I got (15,-3) also)

b) use the gradient formula for AC, and know that the gradient multiplied by the perpendicular gradient will equal -1, subsitute values

c) simultaneous equation

I don't know if that helps, but you didn't give much of an impression where exactly you were stuck.

but you drew those cooirdinates without knowing p and q?

its edexcel jan 05 but its very hard to find the markschemes. our schools gonna give them when we get bk to school.

so how would you do the other ones? assuming ur answers are right?

Thanks for ur help! x

ok just did part b, gradient was right bu my C was wrong, correct eqn is y = 14/10 x - 9.2

basicaly, the gradient of AC is deltaY/deltaX = -10/14, and using the rule that a perpendicular line has gradient -1/m (m being the original gradient), you know that the gradient of the perpendicular line must be 14/10 (came from -1 divided by -10/14 if you're unsure)

you also have a point, 8,2 that you know it passes through, and so the equation must be true at this point. y = 14/10x + C, y=2, x=8, so just stick the numbers in and you get C = -9.2

y = 14/10x - 9.2

or to simplify, maybe your question asked in the form ax + by + c = 0

14x - 10y - 92 = 0

divide by 2 to be proper about it

7x - 5y - 46 = 0

EDIT: and ive just checked the mark scheme and thats the right equation

actualli yes i see your point. i mustve misread the coordinates or something but your explanation makes sense. i wish id thought of that haha!

so how would you do the other ones? assuming ur answers are right?

the line it has to cross is just a straight line y=7

so all you have to do is say, what does the equation look like when y = 7

by subbing it in, you end up with 7x - (5x7) - 46 = 0

7x = 81

x = 81/7

and i've checked that one as well and it's correct if you don't understand just ask me, and ill attach the mark scheme to that paper in a sec

by using the midpoint formula, how did you get (15,-3)?
