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)

is there any formula for finding pt. of intersection between: ax+by+c=0 bx+ay+c=0
Yes, you can apply cross multiplication method(similar to solving determinants). In this eqns, x = -y = 1 . Hence, x=y= -c bc-ac ac-bc a 2 -b2 a+b

how you can say that they intersect at y=x , its for sure that they are symmmetric but i think its only a special case that they intersect at y=x.

i think that there is a better way , we see that when we replace x with y in any eqn. we get the other one which means that the st. line intersect at y=x line as they are symmeteric about...

A rop of length l slides with it’s ends on co-ordinates axis. Find the locus of it’s midpoint.
see, if (a,b)are the x n y axes,a 2 +b 2 =l 2 .....(c,d) midpt....c=a/2,,d=a/2....c^2+d^2=l^2/4....x^2+y^2=l 2 /4
find the solutions sin2x-12(sinx-cosx)+12=0
Ans: We need to do hit & trial in this case So the combined solution is This satisfy the original equation.

middle term in the expansion is greatest then the value of [x]=
Hello Student, if middle term is greatest then using result. we get n/n+1 <x < n+1/n =>[x]=0,1 Thanks & Regards Arun Kumar Btech, IIT Delhi Askiitians Faculty
