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.

If each of the points (x1,4) , (-2,y1) lies on the line joining the points (2,-1),(5,-3) then the point P(x1,y1) lies on the lines ? Give the equation of that line.
 
 
equation of line joining (2,-1),(5,-3) is: 2x + 3y -1 = 0 Now (x1,4) , (-2,y1) lie on 2x + 3y -1 = 0. So it will satisfy. 2x 1 + 3*4 -1 = 0 and 2*-2 + 3y 1 -1 = 0 x 1 =-11/2 and y 1 = 5/3...

All the points lying inside the triangle formed by the points (1,3), (5,6) amd (-1,2) satisfy: a)3x+2y_ 0 b) 2x+y+1_0 c) -2x+11_0 d)2x+3y-12_0
 
 
I think there is some problem with your question since the points lying inside a triangle constitute an enclosed area. So these pointscannot lie on a st. line.
