To practice the questions given in the worksheet on locus of a moving point we need to follow the method of obtaining the equation of the locus to solve these questions.

**1. **A point moves in such a manner that three times of its abscissa is greater by 5 than two times of its ordinate; find the equation of its locus.

**2. **If twice the abscissa of a point moving in the xy-plane always exceeds three times its ordinate by 1, show that the locus of the point is a straight line.

**3. **A point moves in the xy-plane in such a way that its distance from the x-axis and the point (1, -2) are always equal. Find the equation of its locus.

**4.** A point moves in the xy-plane in such a way that its distance from the point (4, 0) is always equal to its distance from the y-axis. Find the equation to the locus of the moving point.

**5.** A point moves such that its distance from the y –axis is equal to its distance from the point (2, 0). Find its locus and identify the nature of the conic.

**6.** A point P (x, y) moves in the xy-plane in such a way that its distance from the point (0, 4) is equal to 2/3 rds of its distance from the x-axis ; find the equation to the locus of P.

**7.** Find the equation to the locus of a moving point which is equidistant from the points (2,3) and (4,-1).

**8.** Find the locus of a point which moves
so that the sum of the squares of its distance from the points (3, 0) and (-3, 0)
is always equal to 50.

**9.** A point moves in a plane such that its
distance from the point (2, 3) exceeds its distance from the y-axis by 2. Find
the equation to the locus of the point.

**11.** The ratio of the distance of a moving
point from the points (3, 4) and (1, -2) is 2 : 3; find the locus of the moving
point.

**12.** A (1, 2) and B (5, -2) are two given
points on the ey-planes, on which C is a moving point, such that the numerical
value of the area of ΔCAB is 12 square units.
Find the equation to the locus of C.
