- A tiling or tessellation of a flat surface is the covering of a plane using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. Historically, tessellations were used in ancient Rome and in Islamic art. You may find tessellation patterns on floors, walls, paintings etc. Shown below is a tiled floor in the archaeological Museum of Seville, made using squares, triangles and hexagons.

A craftsman thought of making a floor pattern after being inspired by the above design. To ensure accuracy in his work, he made the pattern on the Cartesian plane. He used regular octagons, squares and triangles for his floor tessellation pattern

^{th}row? - If there were 17 rows in the auditorium, how many seats will be there in the middle row?

- We all have seen the airplanes flying in the sky but might have not thought of how they actually reach the correct destination. Air Traffic Control (ATC) is a service provided by ground-based air traffic controllers who direct aircraft on the ground and through a given section of controlled airspace, and can provide advisory services to aircraft in non-controlled airspace. Actually, all this air traffic is managed and regulated by using various concepts based on coordinate geometry and trigonometry.

At a given instance, ATC finds that the angle of elevation of an airplane from a point on the ground is 60^{o}. After a flight of 30 seconds, it is observed that the angle of elevation changes to 30^{o}. The height of the plane remains constantly as {tex}3000 \sqrt{3}{/tex} m. Use the above information to answer the questions that follow-- Draw a neat labelled figure to show the above situation diagrammatically.
- What is the distance travelled by the plane in 30 seconds?
**OR**Keeping the height constant, during the above flight, it was observed that after 15({tex}\sqrt{3}{/tex} -1) seconds, the angle of elevation changed to 45

^{o}. How much is the distance travelled in that duration. - What is the speed of the plane in km/hr.

In a GPS, The lines that run east-west are known as lines of latitude, and the lines running north-south are known as lines of longitude. The latitude and the longitude of a place are its coordinates and the distance formula is used to find the distance between two places. The distance between two parallel lines is approximately 150 km. A family from Uttar Pradesh planned a round trip from Lucknow (L) to Puri (P) via Bhuj (B) and Nashik (N) as shown in the given figure below.

Based on the above information answer the following questions using the coordinate geometry.- Find the distance between Lucknow (L) to Bhuj(B).
- If Kota (K), internally divide the line segment joining Lucknow (L) to Bhuj (B) into 3 : 2 then find the coordinate of Kota (K).
- Name the type of triangle formed by the places Lucknow (L), Nashik (N) and Puri (P)
**OR**Find a place (point) on the longitude (y-axis) which is equidistant from the points Lucknow (L) and Puri (P).
