Dear Tapasranjan

let equation of plane is

x/a1 + y/b1 + z/c1 =1

then co ordinate of A is (a1,0,0)  ,B is (0,b1,0) ,C is (0,0,c1)

this plane passes through (a,b,c)


 a/a1 +b/b1 + c/c1  =1 .....................(1)

equation of plane passes trough A and parallel to coordinate plane  is

 x= a1

equation of plane passes trough B and parallel to coordinate plane  is

 y= b1

equation of plane passes trough C and parallel to coordinate plane  is

 z= c1

let common poin in these plane is (x1,y1,z1)

 so x1=a1



put value of a1,b1,c1 in equation 1

a/x1 + b/y1 + c/z1 =1

so locus is

 a/x +b/y + c/z =1

For what values of 'a' will the tangents drawn to the parabola y 2 = 4ax from a point, not on the y axis, will be normal to the parabola x 2 =4y.
tangent for y^2 =4ax=> 2ydy/dx = 4a or dy/dx = 2a/y = m (let) and tangent for x^2 = 4y 2x = 4dy/dx dy/dx = x/2 = n (let) Now given, m * n = -1 we get, y = – ax put it in y^2 = 4ax eqn. we...
