if ax^3+by^3+cx^2y+dxy^2=0 represent three distinct straight lines,such that each line bisects the angle between other two then prove that 3b+c=0

4 years ago


Answers : (1)


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.

can’t we find the equation of parabola when a tangent is drawn to the parabola
We find the equation of parabola , if we know the point at which the tangent touches the parabola and the slope of the tangent.

Why does the angular bisector have to make 120 degree angle?
In this case So, bisector will make 120 (=180-60) angle with +ve x-axis
Akshay 10 months ago
In this case angle(PQR)=120. So, bisector will make 60(=120/2) angle with PQ, which is -ve x-axis. So, bisector will make 120 (=180-60) angle with +ve x-axis

. Integrate tan theta- cot theta. tellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
just writre tan theta =sin theta/ costheta and let costheta as t dt = -sintheta d(theta) It becomes -dt/t = -logt = log(sectheta). Similarly you can find cot theta.
