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)

Find the arithmetic mean of the ordinates of the feet of the normals from the point (3,5) to the parabola y^2 = 8x
 
 
Sum of the ordinates of conormal points is zero. we can prove by following approach: Equation of normal at any point(2t^2,4t) to the parabola y^2=8x is y= -ty+4t+2t^3 it passes through (3,5)...

The equation of a straight line passing through the point (-5,4) and which cuts an intercept of root(2) units between the lines x+y+1=0 and x+y-1 is?
 
 
Hello Student. Please find the solutionx+y+1=0 and x+y-1 are two parallel lines and distance between them is mod|\frac{1-(-1)}{\sqrt{2}} |So distabce between them is 2/root2 = root2So our...

Q . THE STRAIGHT LINE x + y + 2 = 0 ROTATES ABOUT A POINT WHERE IT CUTS THE Y-AXIS AND BECOMES PERPENDICULAR TO THE STRAIGHT LINE ax + by + c = 0 .IN THE NEW POSITION ITS EQUATION IS – ay –...
 
 
The answer is ay – bx + 2a = 0 See, we have given a line x+y=2 Also it is rotated about the point where it cuts the y-axis [i.e.,(0,-2)]. So for the new line, we have a point (0,-2). Its...
