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.

y=10 ^x is the reflection of y=logxwithbase10 by a straight line of equation....
Dear Student, If any curve strike on y = x line, its reflection is juct x replaced by y and y replaced by x. Thanks.

It’s a reflection about the line y=x One can easily see if we replace x by y and y by x in any of the functions we will get the other one

If the distance between the directrix and focus of a parabola is 4,then find the length of latus rectum of parabola?Plzzzz answer soon!
Distance between the directrix and focus of a parabola=2a here,2a=4, a=2 and length of latus rectum=4a=8unit

parabola is symmetric in y axis with vertex at origin directrix is given by x+a,(a.0) is focus. Distance b/t focus&directrix is a+a/1=2a. now 2a=4&a=2,giving latus rectum 4*a=8

Hi, I am not able to solve the problem attached with the image.The Question is from ncert text book. Please provide me a hint.
Multiply and divide by 2 to generate denominator as sin2x. Use the identity sin2x = 2tanx/1+tan 2 x. Simplyfy . then substitute tanx = t and integrate . Please approve the answer..
