tangents PA and PB are drawn to an ellipse x^2/16+y^9=1 from the point (o,5) find the area of triangle pab

5 years ago


Answers : (3)


X2/16+Y2/9=1  is the eq of ellipse

chord of contact = XX1/16+YY1/9=1

chord of contact = 5Y/9=1

                            Y = 9/5                     ..............1

putting Y=9/5 in the eq of ellipse then

 X = + or - 16/5


        A=(16/5,9/5) ,B=(-16/5,9/5) ,P=(0,5)

this triangle isoceles triangle with base AB & height of (5-9/5)units

area = (base)(height)/2

      AB(base) = 32/5 ,height = 16/5

 area = 256/25 square units

actually i am no idea about this because till now i study only general EQ.of ellipse so please tell me a hint to solve this question

show that the tangent to y^2= 4ax at (a,-2a) touches the parabola x^2= 4ay.
Differntiate y^2= 4ax, 2y.dy/dx = 4a dy/dx = 2a/y dy/dx = 2a/-2a = -1 Thus for x^2 = 4ay the slope should also come to -1 as they both have a common tangent. Now doing, 2x = 4ady/dx2 dy/dx2 ...
