Hi Rupali,


 


You've not mentioned the equation of the parabola. (Assuming it as y^2 = 4x)


 


The eqn of any tangent to a parabola y^2 = 4ax is y = mx+a/m


 


So the equation of any tangent to this parabola, would be y=mx+1/m (as a=1, for y^2=4x)


Now these tangents pass through (-2,-1)... so -1=-2m+1/m


Or 2m2-m-1=0.


Where m1,m2 are the slopes of the two tangents that satisfy this equation (m1,m2 are the roots of the quad)....


 


So tan(angle between the tangents) = |(m1-m2)/(1+m1m2)|


Now m1m2 = -1/2


And m1-m2 = root { (m1+m2)2-4m1m2 } = root [ (1/2)2 - 4(-1/2) ] = root[9/4].


So |m1-m2| = 3/2.


 


Hence tan(Angle) = (3/2) / (1/2) = 3.....


 


And that is the answer.
