Coordinate Geometry Practice Questions

Coordinate geometry is a topic from which you could expect from one to two questions in the quant section of the GMAT, GRE, SAT, CAT and the TANCET exams. Concepts tested in this aptitude topic include finding length of a line segment, finding slope of a line, framing equation of a line, finding the quadrants through which a line passes, intercepts of a line with the x and y axes, equation of a circle, area of a triangle, and coordinates of mid point of line segment.

1. Two diagonals of a parallelogram intersect each other at coordinates (17.5, 23.5). Two adjacent points of the parallelogram are (5.5, 7.5) and (13.5, 16). Find the lengths of the diagonals.

1. 15 and 30
2. 15 and 40
3. 17 and 30
4. 17 and 40
5. Multiple solution are possible
2. The equations of four lines are given: x + 2y - 3 = 0, 3x + 4y - 7 = 0, 2x + 3y - 4 = 0 and 4x + 5y - 6 = 0. What can be said about the four lines?

1. Concurrent
