`        If x²+y²=c² and X/a+y/b=1 intersect at A and B then find AB .hence deduce the condition that the line touches the circle`
one month ago

```							hello suman. so the chord intersects circle at A and B. if you drop a perpendicular from the centre O of circle on the chord at P, it will bisect AB (standard theorem).hence AB= 2PA= 2*sqrt(r^2 – (OP)^2) by pyth theorem, where r is the radius of circle.note that x²+y²=c² has centre O(0, 0) and radius = c.so, AB= 2*sqrt(c^2 – (OP)^2).distance of O(0, 0) from line X/a+y/b=1 or bx + ay – ab= 0 will be:OP = |b*0 + a*0 – ab|/sqrt(b^2 + a^2)so, AB= 2*sqrt(c^2 – a^2b^2/(b^2 + a^2)).now, for tangency AB= 0 as tangent touches circle at one point only.so, 2*sqrt(c^2 – a^2b^2/(b^2 + a^2))= 0or c^2(b^2 + a^2) = a^2b^2or 1/a^2 + 1/b^2 = 1/c^2kindly approve :))
