**Question 1. Angles made by the line with the positive direction of X-axis are given. Find the slope of these lines.i. 45°ii. 60°iii. 90°Solution:**

i. Angle made with the positive direction of

X-axis (θ) = 45°

Slope of the line (m) = tan θ

∴ m = tan 45° = 1

∴ The slope of the line is 1.

ii. Angle made with the positive direction of X-axis (θ) = 60°

Slope of the line (m) = tan θ

∴ m = tan 60° = √3

∴ The slope of the line is √3.

iii. Angle made with the positive direction of

X-axis (θ) = 90°

Slope of the line (m) = tan θ

∴ m = tan 90°

But, the value of tan 90° is not defined.

∴ The slope of the line cannot be determined.

Here, x

_{1}= 1, x

_{2}= -2, y

_{1}= -1, y

_{2}= k

But, slope of line RS is -2. … [Given]

∴ -2 = K+1/-3

∴ k + 1 = 6

∴ k = 6 – 1

∴ k = 5

**Question 7. Find k, if B (k, -5), C (1, 2) and slope of the line is 7.Solution:**

But, slope of line BC is 7. …[Given]

∴ 7 = 7/1-K

∴ 7(1 – k) = 7

∴ 1 – k = 77

∴ 1 – k = 1

∴ k = 0

**Question 8.Find k, if PQ || RS and P (2, 4), Q (3, 6), R (3,1), S (5, k).Solution:**But, line PQ || line RS … [Given]
