Equation of tangent is 


 


ax+by-r^2 = 0


In x-y intercept form


 


x/(r^2/a) + y/(r^2/b) = 1


 


x-intercept = r^2/b


y-intercept = r^2/b


 


Area of triangle = 1/2*r^2/b*r^2/b = r4/(2ab)

The chords of contact of the pair of tangents drawn from each point on the line 2x + y = 4 to the circle x 2 +y 2 = 1 pass through a fixed point- (a) (2,4) (b) (-1/2,-1/4) (c) (1/2, 1/4) (d)...
 
 
Hello Student, Equation of chord of contact: hx+ky=1 (h, k) lie on the line, we have 2h+k=4 hx+(4-2h)y=4 =>(1/2, 1/4) Thanks & Regards Arun Kumar Btech, IIT Delhi Askiitians Faculty
