Unformatted text preview: patino (mp25752) Assignment3 luecke (57510) 1 This printout should have 11 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Which one of the points P (1 , 6 , 4) , Q (9 , 8 , 7) , R ( 5 , 5 , 8) in 3space is closest to the yzplane? 1. P (1 , 6 , 4) correct 2. Q (9 , 8 , 7) 3. R ( 5 , 5 , 8) Explanation: The distance of a point ( a, b, c ) in 3space from the yzplane is given by  a  . Conse quently, of the three points P (1 , 6 , 4) , Q (9 , 8 , 7) , R ( 5 , 5 , 8) the one closest to the yzplane is P (1 , 6 , 4) . keywords: plane, distance in 3space, 002 10.0 points Which of the following statements are true: A. in 3space the pair of equations braceleftbigg x = 5 , z = 4 , represents a line , B. in 2space the equation x = 5 represents a line . 1. both of them correct 2. B only 3. neither of them 4. A only Explanation: A. TRUE: in 3space the equation x = 5 represents a plane perpendicular to the xaxis, while z = 4 represents a plane perpendicular to the zaxis. But together the equations represent the intersection of these two planes, i.e. , a line . B. TRUE: in the plane the graph of x = 5 is a vertical line . keywords: T/F, True/False, plane, 2space, 3space, point 003 10.0 points A triangle PQR has vertices P (2 , 1 , 1) , Q (1 , , 2) , R (3 , 2 , 2) . Use the distance formula to decide which one of the following properties the triangle has. 1. isoceles with  QP  =  QR  2. not isoceles 3. isoceles with  RP  =  RQ  4. isoceles with  PQ  =  PR  correct Explanation: Recall that for points A, B it is common to...
