The distance of the point ( 3, 4, 5) from X- axis is

**A. ** 5

**B. ** √41

**C. ** 3

**D. ** √34

**Answer : ****Option B**

**Explaination / Solution: **

The distance of the point ( 3, 4, 5) from X- axis is

let L be the foot of perpendicular from the point ( 3, 4, 5) to X axis ,then coordinate of L will be (3,0,0) [ because on X axis y and z coordinate are zero]

then distance of the point ( 3, 4, 5) from X- axis i.e. from L (3,0,0) is given by =

The equation xy = 0 in three dimensional space represents

**A. ** a plane

**B. ** a pair of planes at right angles

**C. ** a pair of straight lines

**D. ** a pair of parallel lines

**Answer : ****Option B**

**Explaination / Solution: **

since xy=0 implies x=0 or y=0.i.e YZ plane or XZ plane.Hence it represents a pair of planes at right angles

since xy=0 implies x=0 or y=0.i.e YZ plane or XZ plane.Hence it represents a pair of planes at right angles

The point equidistant from the points ( 0 , 0 , 0 ) , ( 1 , 0 , 0 ) , ( 0 , 2 , 0 ) , and ( 0 , 0 , 3 ) is

**A. ** ( 1 , 2 ,3 )

**B. ** ( 1/2 , 1 , 3/2 )

**C. ** ( - 1/2 ,- 1 , - 3/2 )

**D. ** None of these

**Answer : ****Option B**

**Explaination / Solution: **

let the point equidistant from the points ( 0 , 0 , 0 ) , ( 1 , 0 , 0 ) , ( 0 , 2 , 0 ) , and ( 0 , 0 , 3 ) is (x ,y ,z)

then according to the given condition and distance formula between two points we have

taking ist two expressions and solving them we get

Similarly by taking ist and 3rd we get y = 1 and by taking ist and 4th we get z = 3/2

So the required point is ( 1/2 , 1 , 3/2 )

**B. ** ( 0 , b/2 , 0 )

**C. ** ( a/2 , 0 ,0 )

**D. ** ( a/2 , b/2 , c/2 )

**Answer : ****Option D**

**Explaination / Solution: **

General equation of the sphere is ---------------------1)

Since 1) passes through the point (0,0,0) using this in 1) we get d=0

Similarly 1) passes through ( a , 0 , 0 ) , ( 0 , b , 0 ) ( 0 , 0 , c ) using these values in 1)

But as abc0 So , a 0 ,b 0 ,c 0

So from above equations , we have a = - 2g , b= - 2f , c = -2h

centre is (-f ,-g , -h) = ( a/2 , b/2 , c/2 )

Explanation:

x + y = 0 (1)

y + z = 0 (2)

x + z = 0 (3)

Subtracting 1 and 2 we get x-z=0 (4)

adding 3 and 4 we get x-0,y=0 and z=0
