The sides of the right angled triangle are in arithmetic progression. If the triangle has area 24, then what is the length of its smallest side ?
Ans. 6
where d > 0, a > 0
⇒ length of smallest side = a  d
Now (a + d)^{2} = a^{2} + (a  d)^{2}
⇒ a(a  4d) = 0
∴ a = 4d ...(1)
(As a = 0 is rejected)
Also,
⇒ a(a – d) = 48 ...(2)
∴ From (1) and (2),
we get a = 8, d = 2
Hence, length of smallest side

For how many values of p, the circle x^{2} + y^{2} + 2x + 4y – p = 0 and the coordinate axes have exactly three common points ?
Ans. 2
We shall consider 3 cases.
Case I : When p = 0 (i.e. circle passes through origin) Now, equation of circle becomes x^{2} + y^{2} + 2x + 4y = 0
Case II : When circle intersects xaxis at 2 distinct points and touches yaxis
Now (g^{2} – c) > 0 & ƒ^{2} – c = 0
⇒ 1  ( p) > 0 & 4  ( p) = 0
⇒ p =  4 ⇒ p > 1
∴ Not possible.
Case III : When circle intersects yaxis at 2 distinct points & touches xaxis.
Now, g^{2} – c = 0 & ƒ^{2 }– c > 0
⇒ 1 – (–p) = 0 & 4 – (–p) > 0
⇒ p = –1 ⇒ p > –4
∴ p = – 1 is possible.
∴ Finally we conclude that p = 0, –1
⇒ Two possible values of p.

(α^{2}  1)^{2} = 0 ⇒ α = ±1
