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 the orthocentre of a triangle is at (4,5) and the centroid is at (3,3), where is the circumcentre located? Answer is (2.5,2). Please explain.
 
 
so.. centroid is dividing Orhtocentre and circumcentre in 2:1 internally use section formula if the circumcentre is (x, y) for X-coordinate: 3 = (4*1 + 2* x)/ 3 ….....(1) 9 =(4*1 + 2*...

if x^2+y^2+2x+1=0,then the value of x^31+y^35 ?
 
 
x^2 +2x+1 + y^2 can be written as (x+1)^2 + y^2= 0. Only possible when x = -1 & y= 0. So -1 is your answer. Thanks Bharat Bajaj IIT Delhi askiitians faculty
