Dear piyush



chord of contact of circle from P is

 ax +4y =4 .............1


equation of chord bisected at a point O is

 x(a+h)/2  + y (k+4)/2 -4 = {(a+h)/2}2  + {(k+4)/2} -4

 x(a+h)/2  + y (k+4)/2  = {(a+h)/2}2  + {(k+4)/2}  ....................2


equation 1 and 2 represent same line AB so

 (a+h)/2a   = (k+4)/2*4    =  [{(a+h)/2}2  + {(k+4)/2}2  ]/4


 so  (a+h)/2a   = (k+4)/2*4

    1+ h/a  = k/4 +1

   a = 4h/k


 and   (k+4)/2*4    =  [{(a+h)/2}2  + {(k+4)/2}2  ]/4

         ( k+4)/2    =    {(4h/k+h)/2}2  + {(k+4)/2}2

        ( k+4)/2    =    {(4h/k+h)/2}2  + {(k+4)/2}2

          ( k+4)/2    =   h2/k2 {(k+4)/2}2  + {(k+4)/2}2

            (k+4)(h² +k²)=2k²

Two vectors A &B lie in a plane , another vector C lies outside this plane then the resultant of these three vetors i.e., A+B+C?
The resaultant can never be equal to zero .because two planar vectors can add up,but the third one has none to counter balance,to make it canceled .so it can never be zero if A,B,C non zero ...

Write I = dx/x.(x^2n-a^2n)^1/2 = dx/x.(x^n + a^n)^1/2.(x^n – a^n)^1/2 = A/x + B/(x^n + a^n) + C/(x^n - a^n) Solve it by partially no. n is actually pi in image check it again plz.
