   Dear Aparna Tiwari,       


          2cosAcosBcosC =(2cosAcosB)cosC                               here A+B+C=pi=∏       thereforen  C=pi-(A+B)
                                =(cos(A + B) + cos(A - B))cosC
                                =cos(pi - C)cosC + cos(A - B)cos(pi - (A + B))
                                =-2cos^2C - 2cos(A + B)cos(A - B)

                                =-cos^2C - cos^2A + sin^2B


cos^2A+cos^2B+cos^2C+2cosAcosBcosC=cos^2A+cos^2B+cos^2C-cos^2C - cos^2A + sin^2B

                                                                              =   cos^2B+ sin^2B =1

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...
