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)


and


(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,


 










ax3+by3+cx2y+dxy2=0




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


 


cd-9ab=0


 


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

The complex numbers z1 z2 and z3 satisfying z1- z3/z2 -z3= 1-i(root 3)/2 are vertices of a triangle which is Of arwa 0 eqiulateral right angled isosceles obtuse angle isosceles
 
 
(z1-z2)/(z2-z3)= cos(-60)+sin(-60)=e -i60 taking mode on both sides Absolute value of(z1-z2/z2-z3)=1 Therefore |z1-z2|=|z2-z3| Also angle between z1-z2 & z2-z3 is 60 So given triangle is...

Solve for x: 4cos6x-sin6x=cos^3x+3cos2x
 
 
4cos6x-sin6x=cos^3x+3cos2x for x=0,. 4-0=1+3 means x=0 is a solution for x=pi 4- 0= -1 +3 , not a solution. hence only 2npi , is solution of the equation where n=1,2,3..............

which term of the G.P. 2,1,1/2,1/4... is 1/128?
 
 
You can do this simply by putting 1/128 as an exponential term in terms of (1/2) which is the common ratio. The first terrm is a=2, d=1/2, so you can either equate them directly equal to the...
