## Study Notes

### Coordinate Geometry Practice Test

• The practice test consists of 30 questions covering various topics in coordinate geometry.

### Midpoint of a Line Segment

• The midpoint of a line segment between two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given by ((x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2).

### Distance between Two Points

• The distance between two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given by √((x2 - x1)^2 + (y2 - y1)^2).

### Gradient and Equations of Lines

• The gradient of a line perpendicular to a line with equation y = mx + c is -1/m.
• The equation of a line perpendicular to y = mx + c and passing through a point (x1, y1) is y - y1 = (-1/m)(x - x1).

### Simultaneous Equations

• Simultaneous equations can be solved using substitution or elimination methods.
• To eliminate a variable, you can add or subtract the equations.

### Applications of Coordinate Geometry

• Coordinate geometry can be used to solve problems involving distance, midpoint, and gradient in real-world scenarios, such as football games and stationery shop costs.
• The technique of solving simultaneous equations can be used to find unknown values in a system.
