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)

if a,b,c,d are positive real numbers such that a/3=a+b/4=a+b+c/5=a+b+c+d/6 then a/b+2c+3d
 
 
Let a/3 = a + b / 4 = a + b + c / 5 = a + b + c + d/ 6 = k then, a = 3k, b = k, c = k, d = k a/b + 2c + 3d = 3k/k + 2k + 3k = 3k/6k = 1/2
