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)

the normal to the curve at P(x,y) meets the x axis at G. If the distance of G from the origin is twice the abscissa of P , then the curve is a) ellipse b) parabola c) ellipse or hyperbola
solution: for any curve the equation of normal at ( X1, Y1) (y- y1) = -1/m (x- X1) {where m = slope of tengent or say dy/dx at (x1, Y1) } normal meets the X axis at G.. so ( 0 - y1) = -1/m...

If the vertices of triangles are placed at (0,0), (0,6), (6,0). The prove that the distance between the orthocentre and circumcentre is 3 root2.
Solution: As we know the.. orthocentre is the point of intersection of altitudes of the triangle... soo for right angle triangle.. orthocenter is the vertex itself on which right angle is...

Given: [a/(b+c)] + [b(a+c)] + [c/(a+b)] = 1 Then What is the Value of : [a 2 /(b+c)] + [b 2 (a+c)] + [c 2 /(a+b)] ?
Hello student, Please find the response to your question below I think there is some data missing or some mistake in your question. whether it is b(a+c) or b/a+c also it is b 2 (a+c) or b 2...
We have (a+b+c)[ (a/b+c) + (b/c+a) + (c/a+b) ] = a^2/(b+c)+b^2/(c+a)+c^2/(a+b) + (a+b+c) Hence if (a/b+c) + (b/c+a) + (c/a+b) =1, the equation becomes a+b+c = a^2/(b+c)+b^2/(c+a)+c^2/(a+b) +...
