# Lecture - 4 Chapter 7 Coordinate Geometry

00:00:20 NCERT Exercise 7.2 Questions 4 Find the ratio in which the line segment joining the points (– 3, 10) and (6, – 8) is divided by (– 1, 6).

00:09:30 NCERT Exercise 7.2 Questions 5 Find the ratio in which the line segment joining A(1, – 5) and B(– 4, 5) is divided by the x-axis. Also find the coordinates of the point of division.

00:16:50 NCERT Exercise 7.2 Questions 9 Find the coordinates of the points which divide the line segment joining A(– 2, 2) and B(2, 8) into four equal parts.

00:22:20 NCERT Exercise 7.2 Questions 10 Find the area of a rhombus if its vertices are (3, 0), (4, 5), (– 1, 4) and (– 2, – 1) taken in order. [Hint : Area of a rhombus = 1/2(product of its diagonals)]
