# A variable plane which remains at a constant distance 3p from the origin cuts the coordinate axes at A, B, C. Show that the locus of the centroid of triangle ABC is **[CBSE 2017]**

**[CBSE 2017]**

Answer :

Intercept form of plane is

Now distance of plane (1) from (0,0,0) is-

squaring both sides-

Now for the locus of the centroid we must have

x = (a/3), y = (b/3) & z = (c/3)

⇒ a = 3x, b = 3y & c = 3z

∴ equation (2) becomes

Hence Proved.

Rate this question :

and

and whose intercept on the x-axis is equal to that of on y-axis.
