Dear Tapasranjan

let equation of plane is

x/a1 + y/b1 + z/c1 =1

then co ordinate of A is (a1,0,0)  ,B is (0,b1,0) ,C is (0,0,c1)

this plane passes through (a,b,c)

so

a/a1 +b/b1 + c/c1  =1 .....................(1)

equation of plane passes trough A and parallel to coordinate plane  is

x= a1

equation of plane passes trough B and parallel to coordinate plane  is

y= b1

equation of plane passes trough C and parallel to coordinate plane  is

z= c1

let common poin in these plane is (x1,y1,z1)

so x1=a1

y1=b1

z1=c1

put value of a1,b1,c1 in equation 1

a/x1 + b/y1 + c/z1 =1

so locus is

a/x +b/y + c/z =1

A variable plane is at a constant distance 3p from the origin and meets the axes in A,B and C . Show that the locus of the centroid of the triangle ABC is x-2+y-2+z-2=p-2
