## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 10th Maths Solutions Chapter 5 Coordinate Geometry Ex 5.4

10th Maths Exercise 5.4 Samacheer Kalvi Question 1.
Find the slope of the following straight lines
(i) 5y – 3 = 0
(ii) $$7 x-\frac{3}{17}$$ = 0
Solution: Exercise 5.4 Class 10 Samacheer Kalvi Question 2.
Find the slope of the line which is
(i) parallel to y = 0.7x -11
(ii) perpendicular to the line x = -11
Solution:
(i) y = 0.7x – 11
line parallel to y = 0.7x – 11 is y = 0.7x + C
If the lines are parallel, slopes are equal
∴ The slope of the required line is 0.7.
(ii) m = tan θ = tan 90°= ∞ undefined. Ex 5.4 Class 10 Samacheer Question 3.
Check whether the given lines are parallel or perpendicular Solution:
(i) $$\frac{x}{3}+\frac{y}{4}+\frac{1}{7}$$ = 0  10th Maths Exercise 5.4 Question 4.
If the straight lines 12y = -(p + 3)x + 12, 12x – 7y = 16 are perpendicular then find ‘p’.
