        the feet of perpendicular from the origin on a variable chord of the circle X2 + Y2 -2 X - 2y = 0 is  N.  if the variable chord makes an angle of 90 degree at the origin then the locus of N  has the equation....?

							Let (a,b) is the foot of the perpendicular drawn on the variable chord of the circle from the origin.  So, Equation of the chord  $y-b=-a/b(x-a)$                                        or $ax+by={a}^2 +b^2$                                        or  $\frac{ax+by}{a^2+b^2 }=1$….....................(1)  Now hoogeneous form of the given circle by equation is     $x^2+y^2-2x\frac{ax+by}{a^2+b^2}-2y\frac{ax+by}{a^2+b^2}=0$    It will represent pair of st.lines. but by question chord makes 900 at the origin;               so  co-officiant of $x^2$+co-officiant of $y^2$ is zero     i.e

							Continue from the first answer......  $(1-\frac{2a}{a^2+b^2})+(1-\frac{2b}{a^2+b^2})= 2(a^2+b^2)-2a-2b=0$  so locus of the foot of the perpendicular from the orogin is another circle   $2(x^2+y^2)-2x-2y=0$
