Dear Gautham

let y=m1x  and y=m2x  are two lines  and p1 and p2 are the length of perpendicular from (1,1) on these line respectively

the m1 +m2 =-6/3 =-2

m1.m2 =2/3

p1 =(1*1 -1*m1)/√(1+m12)

=(1-m1)/√(1+m12)

similerly

p2 =(1*1 -1*m1)/√(1+m12)

=(1-m2)/√(1+m22)

so p1 .p2 ={(1-m1)/√(1+m12)}*{(1-m2)/√(1+m22)}

={1-(m1+ m2) +m1m2}/√{1+(m1m2)2 +(m1 +m2 )2 -2m1m2}

={1+2+2/3}/√{1+ 4/9 +4 -4/3}

=11/√37
