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 .

is there any formula for the lenght of the intercept made by any circle on a line ?
 
 
Yes, Length of intercept made by circle on a line = 2(r 2 - p 2 ) 1/2 where r = radius of circle, p = perpendicular distance from centre to the line

In the figure given below, ABCDEF is a regular hexagon of side length 1, AFPS and ABQR are squares.Then the ratio Area (APQ)/ Area (SRP) equals
 
 
length of AP and AQ is as these are diagonals of square with side 1. Since AP and AQ are diagonals of square ASPF and ABQR respectively Also, due to hexagon property, angle between adjacent...

Notice length of AP = = length of AQ. Also note and length of SR = length of SP = 1. so the two triangles are iscosceles with same angle between the equal sides. So the ratio of areas is...

let x,y,z be three non-negative integer such that x+y+z=10 the maximum possible value of xyz+xy+yz+zx= ?
 
 
xyz+xy+xz+yz can be expressed as (x + 1)(y + 1)(z + 1) - (x + y + z + 1) Since x+y+z=10 xyz+xy+xz+yz = (x + 1)(y + 1)(z + 1) - 11 So now we have to maximize (x + 1)(y + 1)(z + 1) - 11 Hello...
