S = ax2+by2+2gx+2fy+2hxy+c = 0


 


Partially differentiate S w.r.t x and y respectively.


 


2ax + 2g + 2hy = 0


ax+hy+g = 0     ...............(i)


 


2by + 2f + 2hx = 0


by + hx + f = 0    ..............(ii)


 


Solve (i) and (ii) for x and y.


 


(x,y) is the point of intersection.

Any similar method (generic) for intersection of two curves/ a curve and a line?

This method isnt actually to find the intersection of two curves. This is used to find the centre of the curve. Incase of pair of straight lines, it is infact, the point of their intersection. In ellipse and hyperbola, u get the center.

if the tangent from a pt P on the circle x^2 + y^2 = 1 is perpendicular to tangent frm P to the circle x^2 + y^2 = 3, then locus of P is a circle of radius a)2 b)3 c)4 d)none of these
 
 
THe tangent to circle 1 : x.x1 + y.y1 = 1 from point(x1,y1) The tangent to circle 2 : x.x1 + y.y1 = 3 from point (x1,y1) These tangents are perpendicular. Hence, -x1/y1. -x1/y1 = -1 x1^2 /...
