DiscGQ05 – gilbert – (55035) 1 This print-out should have 4 questions. Explanation: Multiple-choice questions may continue on After completion of squares the next column or page find all choices x 2 + y 2 + z 2 − 6x + 2y − 8z + 17 = 0 before answering. 001 10.0 points Which one of the points P (−1, 1, −3), Q(3, 6, 6), R(−2, 8, 4) in 3-space is closest to the xy-plane? 1. P (−1, 1, −3) correct 2. R(−2, 8, 4) 3. Q(3, 6, 6) Explanation: The distance of a point (a, b, c) in 3- space from the xy-plane is given by |c|. Conse-quently, of the three points P (−1, 1, −3), Q(3, 6, 6), R(−2, 8, 4) the one closest to the xy-plane is P (−1, 1, −3) . keywords: plane, distance in 3-space, 002 10.0 points Find the center of the sphere given by x 2 + y 2 + z 2 − 6x + 2y − 8z + 17 = 0 . 1. center = (6, −2, 4) 2. center = (3, −1, 4) correct 3. center = (−3, 1, −4) 4. center = (6, −2, 8) 5. center = (−3, −1, −4) 6. center = (3, 1, 8) becomes (x−3)
