The tangent at a point P(x,y) on a curve meets the axes at M and N such that P divides MN internally in the ratio 2:1. Then find the equation of the curve?

```							let eqn of line L: x/a + y/b = 1
where a, b are X,Y intercepts of line L
so, dy/dx = -1/a
and the point P which divides MN internally in the ratio 2:1
so x=a/3 and y=2b/3
on substiting in diff. eqn , we have

dy/dx = -y/2x
i.e (1/y) dy  = -(1/2x) .dx
ln y = -1/2lnx +lnC where lnC is constant
so eqn. of curve is :  y=(kx)-1/2
