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)

We now Arithmatic mean (AM) > Harmonic mean (HM) ie., between any two number a,b (a+b)/2 >2ab/(a+b) => 2/(a+b) => 2/(a+b) similarily 2/(b+c) So, 2/(b+c) + 2/(c+a) + 2/(a+b) =>2/(b+c)...
