Let the lines be


y-mix = 0 where i=1,2,3


As one line is equally inclined to the other two, we impose the following condition.

(m1-m3)/(1+m1m3) = -(m2-m3)/(1+m2m3)

Simplify to get,


(m1+m2+m3)-3m3-m3(m1m2+m2m3+m3m1)+3m1m2m3 = 0       ...........(i)


Similarly applying the condition on the other two pairs, we get,


(m1+m2+m3)-3m2-m2(m1m2+m2m3+m3m1)+3m1m2m= 0         ............(ii)


(m1+m2+m3)-3m1-m1(m1m2+m2m3+m3m1)+3m1m2m= 0          .......... (iii)


Adding equations (i),(ii) and (iii), we get,


-(m1m2+m2m3+m3m1)(m1+m2+m3) + 9m1m2m3 = 0                 ............(iv)


Putting y=mx in the equation of combined equation,



we get,


bm3 + dm2 + cm + a = 0

By theory of equations,


m1+m2+m3 = -d/b

m1m2+m2m3+m3m1 = c/b

m1m2m3 = -a/b



Putting the above relations in equation (iv),


-(c/b)(-d/b) + 9(-a/b) = 0




This is the condition that i get. No idea where i went wrong.

If a double ordinate of the parabola y 2 =28x subtends a right angle at its vertex then what will be the length of its double ordinate...?
The 2 ends of the double ordinate will be meeting the parabola at P(c,d) and Q(c,-d). The line segments joining P and Q with the vertex will have slopes as negative reciprocals of each...

A ball thrown by a boy in the street is caught by another boy on a balcony 4m above the ground and 18m away after 2s.calculate the intial velocity and the angle of projection.
Let us first resolute the velocity as ux for velocity along x axis due to which it travels 18m and uy which is vertical velocity due to which it travels 4m. There is no air drag(assumption) ...

If u=f(x) and v=g(x) then d(uv)/dx is
its quite simple , rather its product rule for differentiation anyway uv=f(x).g(x) d(uv)/dx = f(x) g , (x) + g(x) f , (x) it is answer APPROVE IF USEFUL
