the above equation can be written as 


                                                   ( 2y-5)^2=2(x+4)


                                                   therefore the length of the latus rectum is 2

A small mistake in the above post.


 


(2y-5)2 = -2x-17+25 = -2x+8 = -2(x-4)


 


or, (y- 5/2)2 = -1/2 * (x-4)


 


So Latus Rectum is 1/2 .

I was having trouble solving this question: If the coordinates of a point p be (aCosθ, bSinθ) whereθ is a variable quantity, find locuss of p. I really dont understand how to solve such...
 
 
the ans is (x/a) 2 +(y/b) 2 =1 it is simple u just need to eliminate θ and for that take x=acosθ and y=bsinθ so cosθ=x/a and sinθ=y/b now since cos 2 θ + sin 2 θ=1 we get (x/a) 2 +(y/b) 2...

Hello student, Let P(x, y) be the required point on the parabola which is nearest to the focus. Then D = √(x – a) 2 + y 2 Now, y 2 = 4ax So , D = √(x - a) 2 + 4ax =...

One of the best questions in probablity. The anwer is c and not b.I really can’t understand why we are subtracting 2 from 2^6 in the number of choices for birthdays.
 
 
That is the case when birthdays of 6 people lie in one month. Question asks to find for “exactly” two months. There may be case when birthdays lie in 1 month, say January for example. ATB
