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 eccentricity of the ellipse whose foci are (2,4) and (14,9) and touches the x axis
 
 
since ellipse touches the x-axis, therefore x-axis is a tangent to the ellipse. The product of the perpendicular distance is equal to square of the semi minor. Therefore b 2 =9*4=36 distance...

If in a triangle A=(1,10),circumcenter=(-1/3,2/3) and orthocentre =(11/3,4/3) then the co-ordinates of the side opposite to A is:
 
 
In a triangle, the circumcenter orthocentre and the centroid are collinear and they lie on a line called as Euler line. The centroid divides the orthocentre and circumcentre in 2:1. Hence,...
