Distance between two points A(x_{1}, y_{1}) and B(x_{2}, y_{2}) :
d = √[(x_{2} – x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2} – y_{1})^{2}]
Midpoint formula: If M is is the midpoint of the line segment joining A(x_{1}, y_{1}) and B(x_{2}, y_{2}) then
M = [(x_{1} + x_{2})/2 , (y_{1} + y_{2})/2]
Area of a Triangle: ½ [ x_{1} ( y_{2} – y_{3}) + x_{2} ( y_{3} – y_{1}) + x_{3} ( y_{1} – y_{2})] or
Area of a Triangle = ½ [ (x_{1 }y_{2} + x_{2 }y_{3} + x_{3} y_{1})  (x_{2 }y_{1} + x_{3 }y_{2} + x_{1} y_{3})]
Area of the quadrilateral = ½ [ (x_{1 }y_{2} + x_{2 }y_{3} + x_{3} y_{4} + x_{4} y_{1})  (x_{2 }y_{1} + x_{3 }y_{2} + x_{4} y_{3} + x_{1} y_{4})]

∆ = ½ [ (x_{1 }y_{2} + x_{2 }y_{3} + x_{3} y_{1})  (x_{2 }y_{1} + x_{3 }y_{2} + x_{1} y_{3})] = 0
Slope or Gradient of a Straight Line:
Slope = tan θ = m
Slope of a line joining two points A(x_{1}, y_{1}) and B(x_{2}, y_{2})
m = (y_{2} – y_{1}) / (x_{2} – x_{1})^{ } or
m = (y_{1} – y_{2}) / (x_{1} – x_{2})
Condition for two lines to be parallel:
m_{1} = tan θ_{1} and m_{2} = tan θ_{2}
tan θ_{1} = tan θ_{2}
m_{1 }= m_{2 }
Hence,_{ }if two lines are parallel, they have the same slope
Condition for two lines to be perpendicular:
m_{1} m_{2 }= 1
product of the slopes of two lines is 1 n then the lines are perpendicular.
Note:
If the line is parallel to X axis (perpendicular to y axis ), then the slope is 0.
If the line is perpendicular to X axis (parallel to y axis ), then the slope is not defined.
If the slope of a line is ‘m’ , then the slope of the line perpendicular to it is – 1/m.
Equation of a Line:
Equations of coordinate axes:
The x coordinate of every point Y axis is 0 therefore equation of Y axis is x = 0
The y coordinate of every point X axis is 0 therefore equation of X axis is y = 0
Equation of a straight line parallel to Xaxis is y = b
Equation of a straight line parallel to Yaxis is x = a
SlopeIntercept form
To find the equation of a straight line when slope ‘m’ and Y intercept ‘c’ are given
y = mx + c.
SlopePoint form
To find the equation of a line passing through a point (x_{1}, y_{1}) and with given slope ‘m’.
y – y_{1} = m(x – x_{1})
TwoPoints form
To find the equation of a straight line passing through two points (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}):
[(y – y_{1}) / (y_{2} – y_{1})]^{ } = [(x – x_{1}) / (x_{2} – x_{1})]
Intercept Form:
Equation of a straight line which makes intercepts a and b on the coordinate axes is
x/a + y/b = 1
General form of a straight line:
The linear equation ax + by + c = 0 always represents a straight line. This is the general form of a straight line.
Slope of the line =  a/b
In general, slope =  Coefficient of x / Coefficient of y
Condition for parallelism of two straight lines:
We know that two straight lines are parallel, if their slopes are equal. If m_{1 }and m_{2 }are the slopes of two parallel lines then m_{1 }= m_{2 }
The equation of all lines parallel to the line ax + by + c can be put in the form ax + by + k = 0 for different values of k.
Condition for perpendicularity of two straight lines:
We know that two straight lines are perpendicular, if the product of their slopes is 1. If m_{1 }and m_{2 }are the slopes of two perpendicular lines, then m_{1} m_{2 }= 1
The equation of all lines perpendicular to the line ax + by + c can be put in the form bx  ay + k = 0 for different values of k.
Concurrency of three lines:
Condition that the lines a_{1}x + b_{1}y + c_{1} =0, a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2} = 0, and a_{3}x + b_{3}y + c_{3} =0 may be concurrent.
a_{3} (b_{1}c_{2} – b_{2}c_{1}) + b_{3}(c_{1}a_{2} – c_{2}a_{1}) + c_{3}(a_{2}b_{2} – a_{2}b_{1}) = 0
Circumcentre:
We have learnt the perpendicular bisectors of the sides of a triangle are concurrent.
The point of concurrence is called Circumcentre.
Centroid:
We have learnt that the medians of a triangle meet at a point. The point is known as Centroid.
Centroid is = [(x_{1} + x_{2 }+ x_{3})/3 , (y_{1} + y_{2 }+ y_{3})/3]
Orthocenter of a Triangle:
We have learnt in theoretical geometry, the altitudes of a triangle meet at a point. This point is called Orthocenter.
