Distance Formula CBSE NCERT solutions Chapter 7 Exercise 7.1 Question 2
2. Find the distance between the points (0, 0) and (36, 15). Also, find the distance between towns A and B if town B is located at 36 km east and15 km north of town A.
Applying Distance Formula to find distance between points (0, 0) and (36, 15), we get
Town B is located at 36 km east and15 km north of town A. So, the location of town A and B can be shown as:
Clearly, the coordinates of point A are (0, 0) and coordinates of point B are (36, 15).
Note that coordinates of points A and B can vary according to the description of the problem but the distance between them would be constant.
To find the distance between them, we use Distance formula:
d = Km
