Coordinate Geometry

Question 3:

To conduct Sports Day activities, in your rectangular shaped school ground ABCD, lines have been drawn with chalk powder at a distance of 1 m each. 100 flower pots have been placed at a distance of 1 m from each other along AD, as shown in the following figure. Niharika runs the distance AD on the 2nd line and posts a green flag. Preet runs the distance AD on the eighth line and posts a red flag. What is the distance between both the flags? If Rashmi has to post a blue flag exactly halfway between the line segment joining the two flags, where should she post her flag?


It can be observed that Niharika posted the green flag at of the distance AD i.e., m from the starting point of 2nd line. Therefore, the coordinates of this point G is (2, 25).
