**NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths Three Dimensional Geometry ****Exercise**** 11.1 Ques No 1.**

If a line makes angles 90°, 135°, 45° with the x, y and z-axes respectively, find its direction cosines

**NCERT Solutions:**

If a line makes angles α, β and γ with x, y and z-axes, then direction cosines are l = cos α, m = cos β and n = cos γ.

Given that α = 90°, β = 135° and γ = 45°. Thus, the direction cosines of the given line is

l = cos 90°, m = cos 135° and n = cos 45°.

or, l = 0, m = -1/√2, n = 1/√2.

**NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths Three Dimensional Geometry ****Exercise**** 11.1 Ques No 2.**

Find the direction cosines of a line which makes equal angles with the coordinate axes.

**NCERT Solutions:**

If a line makes angles α, β and γ with x, y and z-axes, then direction cosines are l = cos α, m = cos β and n = cos γ.

And, *l*^{2} + *m*^{2} + *n*^{2} = 1 …(1)

Given that α = β = γ. Thus, the direction cosines of the given line is

*l* = cos α, *m* = cos α and *n* = cos α.

or, *l* = *m* = *n*

or, *l*^{2} + *l*^{2} + *l*^{2} = 1

or, 3*l*^{2} = 1

or, *l* = ±1/√3

Thus, *l* = *m* = *n *= ±1/√3.

Therefore, the direction cosines of the given line are (1/√3, 1/√3, 1/√3) or (-1/√3, -1/√3, -1/√3).

**NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths Three Dimensional Geometry ****Exercise**** 11.1 Ques No 3.**

If a line has the direction ratios –18, 12, –4, then what are its direction cosines ?

**NCERT Solutions:**

Let a, b, c be direction ratios of a line, then the direction cosines of the line are

Given that the direction ratios of the line is a = –18, b = 12, c = –4. Then,

Thus, the direction cosines of the line are

**NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths Three Dimensional Geometry ****Exercise**** 11.1 Ques No 4.**

Show that the points (2, 3, 4), (– 1, – 2, 1), (5, 8, 7) are collinear.

**NCERT Solutions:**

The direction ratios of line joining A and B are (– 1 – 2), (– 2 – 3), (1 – 4) Or, – 3, – 5, –3.

The direction ratios of line joining B and C are (5 + 1), (8 + 2), (7 – 1) Or, 6, 10, 6

It is clear that direction ratios of AB and BC are proportional.

Hence, AB is parallel to BC.

But point B is common to both AB and BC. Therefore, A, B, C are collinear points.

**NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths Three Dimensional Geometry ****Exercise**** 11.1 Ques No 5.**

Find the direction cosines of the sides of the triangle whose vertices are (3, 5, – 4), (– 1, 1, 2) and (– 5, – 5, – 2).
