Ordered Pairs

An ordered pair consists of two components, written inside parentheses, in which the order of the components is important.

WRITING ORDERED PAIRSExample 1

Use the table to write ordered pairs to express the relationship between each type of entertainment and the amount spent on it.

WRITING ORDERED PAIRSExample 1

a. DVD rental sales

Solution:

Use the data in the second row:

(DVD rental sales, $71).

b. Movie tickets

Solution:

Use the data in the last row:

(Movie tickets, $30).

The Distance Formula

Using the coordinates of ordered pairs, we can find the distance between any two points in a plane.

y

Horizontal side of the triangle has length

Q(8, 3)

P(–4, 3)

x

R(8, –2)

Definition of distance.

The Distance Formula

y

By the Pythagorean theorem, the length of the remaining side of the triangle is

Q(8, 3)

P(–4, 3)

x

R(8, –2)

The Distance Formula

y

To obtain a general formula for the distance between two points in a coordinate plane, let P(x1, y1) and R(x2, y2) be any two distinct points in a plane. Complete a triangle by locating point Q with coordinates (x2, y1). The Pythagorean theorem gives the distance between P and R as

Q(x2, y1)

P(x1, y1)

x

R(x2, y2)

The Distance Formula

Note Suppose that P(x1, y1) and R(x2, y2) are two points in a coordinate plane. Then the distance between P and R, written d(P, R) is given by

USING THE DISTANCE FORMULAExample 2

Find the distance between P(–8, 4) and

Q(3, –2.)

Solution:

Be careful when subtracting a negative number.

Using the Distance Formula

If the sides a, b, and c of a triangle satisfy a2 + b2 = c2, then the triangle is a right triangle with legs having lengths a and b and hypotenuse having length c?

DETERMINING WHETHER THREE POINTS ARE THE VERTICES OF A RIGHT TRIANGLEExample 3

Are points M(–2, 5), N(12, 3), and

Q(10, –11) the vertices of a right triangle.

Solution This triangle is a right triangle if the square of the length of the longest side equals the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides.

Colinear

We can tell if three points are collinear, that is, if they lie on a straight line, using a similar procedure

Three points are collinear if the sum of the distances between two pairs of points is equal to the distance between the remaining pair of points.

DETERMINING WHETHER THREE POINTS ARE COLLINEARExample 4

Are the points (–1, 5), (2,–4), and (4, –10) collinear?

Solution The distance between (–1, 5) and (2,–4) is

DETERMINING WHETHER THREE POINTS ARE COLLINEARExample 4

Are the points (–1, 5), (2,–4), and (4, –10) collinear?

Solution The distance between the remaining pair of points (–1, 5) and (4,–10) is

The midpoint of the line segment with endpoints (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) has coordinates

USING THE MIDPOINT FORMULAExample 5

Use the midpoint formula to determine the following.

a. Find the coordinates of M of the segment with endpoints (8, –4) and (–6,1).

Solution

Substitute in the midpoint formula.

USING THE MIDPOINT FORMULAExample 5

Use the midpoint formula to determine the following.

b. Find the coordinates of the other endpoint B of a segment with one endpoint A(–6, 12) and midpoint M(8, –2).

Solution

Let (x, y) represent the coordinates of B. Use the midpoint formula twice.

USING THE MIDPOINT FORMULAExample 5

Let (x, y) represent the coordinates of B. Use the midpoint formula twice.

x-value of A

x-value of M

x-value of A

y-value of M

Substitute carefully.

The coordinates of endpoint B are (22, –16).

APPLYING THE MIDPOINT FORMULA TO DATAExample 6

The graph indicates the increase of McDonald’s restaurants worldwide from 20,000 in 1996 to 31,000 in 2006.

Use the midpoint formula and the two given endpoints to estimate the number of restaurants in 2001, and compare it to the actual (rounded) figure of 30,000

APPLYING THE MIDPOINT FORMULA TO DATAExample 6

Solution:2001 is halfway between 1996 and 2006. Find the coordinates of the midpoint of the segment that has endpoints (1996, 20) and (2006, 31).

Our estimate is 25,500, which is well below the actual figure of 30,000.

FINDING ORDERED PAIRS THAT ARE SOLUTIONS OF EQUATIONSExample 7

For the equation, find at least three ordered pairs that are solutions
