6.4.4 The Point of intersection of two Straight lines

1. When two lines intersect, the point of intersection lies on both lines.

2. This means the coordinates of the point satisfy both the equations of the lines.

3. Therefore, we need to solve the equation simultaneously in order to determine the point of

intersection.

Example 1:

The straight line which has a gradient of 2 and passes through the point (4, -1) intersects with the straight line x + y = −6 at the point P. Find the coordinates of the point P.

Solution:

First of all, we have to find the equation of the straight line.

Equation of locus is actually involving the distance between two points. So we have to use the formula of the distance between two points to find the equation of locus. There is no specific formula to find the formula to find the equation of

locus.

In this case, P is the moving point such that its distance is always 3 unit from point A.

Equidistant from two fixed points Find the equation of the locus of a moving point P such that its distance from the point A (1, 2) and point B (3, 4) are equal.
