# CAT Quantitative Aptitude Questions | Questions for CAT - Coordinate Geometry

###### CAT Questions | CAT Coordinate Geometry | Circle and chord

The question is from CAT Coordinate Geometry. This is about area of a segment. We need to find out the area of intersecting region between a circle and a chord. Take Geometry, add one unit of algebra; take a diagram, explain it with x's and y's. For the purists, it is geometry without the romance, for the pragmatists it is Geometry with expanded scope. It is important to cover ideas from Coordinate Geometry in your CAT Preparation.

Question 6: Find the area of the region that comprises all points that satisfy the two conditions x2 + y2 + 6x + 8y ≤ 0 and 4x ≥ 3y?

Perhaps a particular chord is actually a diameter? x2 + y2 + 6x + 8y < 0 x2 + 6x + 9 – 9 + y2 + 8y + 16 – 16 < 0$x + 3)2 + (y + 4)2 < 25

This represents a circular region with centre (–3, –4) and radius 5 units. Substituting x = y = 0, we also see that the inequation is satisfied. This means that the circle also passes through the origin. To find out the intercepts that the circle cuts off with the axes, substitute x = 0 to find out the y–intercept and y = 0 to find out x–intercept. Thus x–intercept = –6 and y–intercept = –8.

Now, the line 4x = 3y passes through the point (–3, –4). Or this line is the diameter of the circle. The area we are looking for is the area of a semicircle.
Required area = 25$$frac{π}{2}\\$ The question is "Find the area of the region that comprises all points that satisfy the two conditions x2 + y2 + 6x + 8y ≤ 0 and 4x ≥ 3y?" ##### Hence, the answer is 25$\frac{π}{2}\\$ sq units Choice C is the correct answer. ###### Best CAT Online Coaching Try upto 40 hours for free Learn from the best! ###### Already have an Account? ###### CAT Coaching in ChennaiCAT 2024 Classroom Batches Starting Now! @Gopalapuram and @Anna nagar ###### Best CAT Coaching in Chennai Attend a Demo Class ###### Best Indore IPM & Rohtak IPM CoachingSignup and sample 9 full classes for free.
