# Determine whether

Given:

x + y – 4 = 0, 3x – 7y + 8 = 0, 4x – y – 31 = 0 forming a triangle and point (-3, 2)

To find:

Point (-3, 2) lies inside or outside the triangle

Explanation:

Let ABC be the triangle of sides AB, BC and CA, whose equations x + y 4 = 0, 3x 7y + 8 = 0 and 4x y 31 = 0, respectively.

On solving them, we get A (7, - 3), B (2, 2) and C (9, 5) as the coordinates of the vertices.

Let P ( 3, 2) be the given point.

Diagram: The given point P ( 3, 2) will lie inside the triangle ABC, if

(i) A and P lies on the same side of BC

(ii) B and P lies on the same side of AC

(iii) C and P lies on the same side of AB

Thus, if A and P lie on the same side of BC, then

21 + 21 + 8 – 9 – 14 + 8 > 0

50 × - 15 > 0

- 750 > 0,

Which is false

Hence, the point ( 3, 2) lies outside triangle ABC.
