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...

If the equation x^2 – x – p =0 and x^2 - 2xp - 12 =0 have a common root ,find it
 
 
x^2-x-p=0; p = (-x^2 +x) substitute p in 2 nd equation x^2-2x(-x^2+x)-12=0 2x^3-x^2-12=0 solving this eqn we get x = 2 and other roots are unreal so, the common root is 2
