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.

A line cuts the x-axis at A (7, 0) and the y-axis at B (0, -5). A variable line PQ is drawn perpendicular to AB cutting the x-axis in P and the y-axis in Q. If AQ and BP intersect at R,...
 
 
The given line cuts the x-axis at A (7, 0) and the y-axis at B (0, -5). Hence, the equation of the line AB is x/7 + y/-5 = 1 …… (1) Hence, the equation becomes 5x-7y = 35. We know that the...

If f(1) =1, f(2n)= f(n), f(2n+1)=(f(n))^2 -2 for n=1,2,3,..., then find the value of f(1) + f(2) +...+f(25).
 
 
ans is 1.. put n=1 in f(2n)...then u get f(2)=f(1)=1....similarly put n=2,3....then u get f(4)=f(6)=f(8)=......=f(24)=1..............(1) now put n=1 in f(2n+1)=f(n)^2-2..........u...
