Here, let the line be ax+by+c=0Now, ((x-x1)/a)=((y-y1) /b) where x, y are coordinates of centre of new circle and x1,y1 are coordinates of centre of old circle. Solving this we get a=bNow,on solving[(x-x1)/a]=[-2(ax1+by1+c)]/[a^2+b^2]we get -4a=cAnd on substituting a=b=-c/4 in line equation we get linex+y-4=0
