Answers : (1)


T = S1

y-0.5(x+2) = 1^2 - 2 = -1


2y - x - 2 = -2

or, x = 2y


Put in the equation,


y^2 = 2y

or, y = 0 , 2

x = 0, 4

Points where the line cuts the parabola = (0,0), (4,2)


Length = sqrt(4^2 + 2^2) = sqrt(16+4) = sqrt(20) = 2*sqrt(5)

find eqn. of a line passing through intersectin of lines x+y+1=0 and 2x-3y-1=0 and passing through (1,1) whose slope is 2 units
this question is to be done by done by the method of family of lines. so,by this method-(x+y+1)+lambda(2x-3y-1)=0 now x=--2/5 and y=--3/5 are the solutions of the equation x+y+1 =0 and...

The number of points (x,y) (where x and y both are perfect squares of integers) on the parabola y^2=px,p being a prime number, is ?
y 2 = px y = sqrt(px) Since x & y are perfect square integers, sqrt(x) is an integer. Since p is a prime no., sqrt(p) is an irrational no. The point which satisfies the given condition is...

The values of x (0 ≤ x ≤ π) satisfying the equation sec 2 x + (1 − √3)tanx − (√3 + 1) = 0 are
put sec 2 x=1+tan 2 x in the above it becomes tan 2 x+(1-(3) 1/2 )tanx-(3) 1/2 =0.solve this quadratic to obtain x=135 and 60 degrees.

sir, should i use L-hopital rule while prctising limits or use other normal procedures.
see, if lim given to us is in 0/0 form or infinity/inf. form then iys better to use L''hop. rule as differentiating an expression is not that tough.. else ur wish..
