Dear pallvi

Find the area of triangle ABC

ΔABC =49/2

similerly find the area of triangle DBC

ΔDBC =7|2x-1|

now given ΔDBC/ΔABC   =1/2

  so   7|2x-1|/49/2  = 1/2

       2 |2x-1|/7 =1/2

         |2x-1| =7/4

      2x-1  =±7/4

+ve sign                                             -ve sign

2x-1 = 7/4                                        2x-1 =-7/4

x =11/8                                            x=-3/8

If 2a+b+2c=0, then the family of lines ax+by+c=0 is concurrent at
Make ax+by+c=0 similar to 2a + b + 2c = 0 therfore multiply ax+by+c=0 by 2 .i.e. 2ax + 2by + 2c = 0 Now compare it with the coeff. of 2a+b+2c=0 we get, x = 1 y = ½ thus at this point it is...

Find the derivative of f(x) = x 3 -x using the definition of derivative ?
The given function is f(x) = x 3 -x Now we calculate the difference quotient f(x+h) – f(x) / h = [(x+h) 3 - (x+h)] – [x 3 -x] / h 3x 2 +3xh+h 2 -1 lim h-0 3x 2 +3xh+h 2 -1 = 3x 2 - 1
