2.   Find the ratio in which the line 3x + 4y . 9 = 0 divides the line segment joining the points (1, 3) and (2, 7). (2)
3.   If point P (x, y) is equidistant from the points A (3, 6) and B (-3, 4), prove that 3x + y . 5 = 0. (3)
4.   The coordinates of A and B are (1, 2) and (2, 3). If P lies on AB then find the coordinates of P such that: AP/PB = 4/3. (3)
5.   Show that the triangle PQR formed by the points P (√2, √2), Q (-√2, -√2) and R (-√6, -√6) is an equilateral triangle. (3)
