### If P = (x, y), F1 = (3, 0), F2 = (–3, 0) and 16x2 + 25y2 = 400, then PF1 +PF2 equals          (1998 - 2 Marks)

Detailed Solution for Test: MCQs (One or More Correct Option): Conic Sections | JEE Advanced - Question 2

The ellipse can be written as,

Here a2 = 25, b2 = 16, but b2 = a2 (1 – e2)
⇒ 16/25 = 1– e2 ⇒ e2 =1 – 16/25 = 9/25  ⇒ e = 3/5
Foci of the ellipse are (+ ae, 0) = (± 3, 0), i.e., F1 and F2
∴ We have PF1 + PF2 = 2a = 10 for every point P on the ellipse.

The equations of th e common tangents to the parabola y = x2 and y = – (x – 2)2 is/are (2006 - 5M, –1)

Detailed Solution for Test: MCQs (One or More Correct Option): Conic Sections | JEE Advanced - Question 4

if y = mx + c is tangent to y = x2 then x2 – mx – c = 0 has equal roots

⇒ m2 + 4c = 0 ⇒ c

is tangent to y = x2

∴ This is also tangent to  y = – (x – 2)2

= x2 + 4x – 4

⇒ x2 + (m – 4)x += 0

has equal roots⇒ m2 – 8m + 16 = – m2 + 16

⇒ m = 0, 4 ⇒ y = 0 or y = 4x – 4 are the tangents.

Let L be a normal to the parabola y2 = 4x. If L passes through the point (9, 6), then L is given by (2011)

Detailed Solution for Test: MCQs (One or More Correct Option): Conic Sections | JEE Advanced - Question 12

The equation of normal to y2 = 4x is y = mx – 2m – m3 As it passes through (9, 6)
∴ 6 = 9m – 2m – m3 ⇒ m3 – 7m + 6 = 0 ⇒ (m – 1) (m2 + m – 6) = 0
⇒ (m – 1) (m + 3) (m – 2) = 0 ⇒ m = 1, 2, –3
∴ Normal is y = x – 3 or y = 2x – 12 or y = – 3x + 33

Also slope of tangent to circle at

Equation of normal at t = 2 is 2x + y = 12
Clearly x-intercept = 6
SP = and SQ = r = 2
∴ Q divides SP in the ratio SP : PQ
