Given the system of straight lines a(2x+y-3) + b(3x+2y-5) = 0, the line of the system farthest from the point (4,-3) has the equation?

Options: a) 4x+11y-15=0

             b) 7x+y-8=0

             c) 4x+3y-7=0

             d) 3x-4y+1=0

 Hi Suhas,


The given system represents a family of lines passing through the intersection of 2x+y-3=0 and 3x+2y-5=0

These two lines intersect at (1,1).


Now a line throug this system will be the farthest from the point (4,-3) if the line is perpendicular to the line joining (1,1) and (4,-3).

Slope of the line joining (4,-3) and (1,1) is -4/3.

So slope of the required line passing through (1,1) is 3/4.


So the eqn of the line will be 3x-4y+7=0 (there is no option in the question, please check your choice D).

Hi Suhas,


Sorry. A silly mistake in the last step.

Eqn of line through (1,1) and having slope as 3/4 will be 3x-4y+1=0

So option (D) is correct.

prove that cosA-sinA=root @ cos (A+pi/4)
L.H.S Since, (cosA-sinA) 2 =1-sin2A cosA-sinA=(1-sin2A) 1/2 ={1+cos( pi/2+2A)} ½ ={1+cos2( pi/4+A)} ½ ={2cos 2 (pi/4 +A)} 1/2 =(2) 1/2 cos( pi/4+ A) 1/2 Hence proved
