Distance Formula
Meaning
Coordinate Geometry is a branch of geometry which is used to identify a point on a plane. It was invented by RENE DESCARTES.
Rectangular Coordinate Axis
The two mutually perpendicular number lines which are used to find the position of a point on a plane is called rectangular axis. In the graph, XOX' is called xaxis and the point YOY' is called yaxis. The two lines XOX' and YOY' are also called rectangular coordinate axis which divide the plane into four equal parts which are called quadrant.
Plotting points in coordinate plane
Plotting points is the process of locating a point whose coordinates are given. The plotting of points can be done on graph paper.
Distance Between Two Points
If the elements or coordinates of any two points are given, the distance between them can be found with the help of distance formulae.
Suppose that,
P(x_{1}, y_{1}) and Q(x_{2}, y_{2}) are any two points in the coordinates plane and 'd' is the distance between them.
Now,
Draw PT and QK perpendicular on xaxis and PM perpendicular to QK.
Then,
OK = x_{2}, KQ = y_{2}, OT = x, PT = y.
PM = TK= OK  OT = (x_{2} x_{1})
Also,
OM = OK  MK = QK  PT
= (y_{2} y_{1}) [∴ MK = PT]
Since, ∠PMQ is a right angle, so \(\triangle\)PMQ is a right angle triangle.
Now,
\(\triangle\)PMQ using Pythagoras Theorem,
PQ^{2}= PM^{2}= QM^{2}
= (x_{2} x_{1})^{2}+ (y_{2} y_{1})^{2}
or, PQ = (x_{2}− x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2}− y_{1})^{2} ................... \(\sqrt{(x_2 − x_1)^2 + (y_2 − y_1)^2}\)
∴ Distance (d) = (x_{2}− x_{1})^{2}+ (y_{2}− y_{1})^{2} ...................\(\sqrt{(x_2 − x_1)^2 + (y_2 − y_1)^2}\)
Again,
The distance of a point A(x, y) from the origin O(0, 0) is,
or, OA = (x−0)^{2}+ (y−0)^{2} .................. \(\sqrt{(x−0)^2 + (y−0)^2}\)
∴ OA = x^{2}+ y^{2} .................... \(\sqrt{x^2 + y^2}\)
Again,
Slope of the line = PQ = Tanθ
\(\frac{OM}{PQ}\) = \(\frac{y_2 − y_1}{x_2 − x_1}\)
Types of triangle using the coordinates of the vertices

b) 
Isosceles 
Two sides are equal i.e. in ΔABC, AB=BC or BC=CA or AB=AC. 
c) 
Equilateral 
All sides are equal i.e. in ΔABC, AB = BC = CA. 
d)

Sum of squares of two shorter sides is equal to the square of the longest side. 
e) 
Right Angled Isosceles Triangle 
Two shorter sides are equal and the sum of the squares of two shortest sides is equal to the square of the longest side. 
Types of quadrilateral using the coordinates of the vertices
a)

b)
