# Determine whether the point (-3, 2) lies inside or outside the triangle whose sides are given by the equations x + y – 4 = 0, 3x – 7y + 8 = 0, 4x – y – 31 = 0.

Answer :

__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.
