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)

absolutely correct. x(x – 2) + 3(x – 2) = x^2 – 2x + 3x – 6 = X^2 + x – 6 Hope that you both have understood now
