⇒ α=
⇒ 3bc – 2ad = 0
Alternative method :
The point of intersection will be

∵ Point of intersection is in fourth quadrant so x is positive and y is negative.
Also distance from axes is same
So x = – y (∵ distance from x-axis is – y as y is negative)

⇒ 3bc – 2ad = 0 ...(i)

QUESTION: 80

The locus of the foot of perpendicular drawn from the centre of the ellipse x2 + 3y2 = 6 on any tangent to it is

Solution:

Here ellipse is  where a2 = 6, b2 = 2
Now, equation of any variable tangent is
...... (i)
where m is slope of the tangent
So, equation of perpendicular line drawn from centre to tangent is
............... (ii)
Eliminating m, we get

QUESTION: 81

Let C be the circle with centre at (1, 1) and radius = 1. If T is the circle centred at (0, y), passing through origin and touching the circle C externally, then the radius of T is equal to

Solution:

T touches C externally

QUESTION: 82

The slope of the line touching both the parabolas y2 = 4x and x2 = –32y is

Solution:

y2 = 4x …(1)
x2 = –32y …(2)
m be slope of common tangent Equation of tangent (1)
y = mx + 1/m …(i)
Equation of tangent (2)
y = mx + 8m2 …(ii)
(i) and (ii) are identical
1/m  = 8m2
⇒ m3 = 1/8
m = 1/2
Alternative method :
Let tangent to y2 = 4x be y =mx+ 1/m
as this is also tangent to x2 =−32 y
Solving x+ 32mx + 32/m = 0
Since roots are equal
∴ D = 0

QUESTION: 83

The image of the line in the plane 2x – y + z + 3 = 0 is the line

Solution:

3λ + 6 = 0 ⇒ λ = – 2
a = – 3, b = 5, c = 2
So the equation of the required line is

QUESTION: 84

The angle between the lines whose direction consines satisfy the equations l + m + n = 0 and l2 = m2 + n2 is

Solution:

l + m + n = 0
l2 = m2 + n2
Now, (–m – n)2 = m2 + n2
⇒ mn = 0
m = 0 or n = 0

∴ cos θ= 1/2
θ= π/3

QUESTION: 85

​If then λ is equal to

Solution:

QUESTION: 86

​Let A and B be two events such that wherestands for the complement of the event A. Then the events A and B are

Solution:

QUESTION: 87

The variance of first 50 even natural numbers is

Solution:

Variance =

= 3434 – 2601
⇒σ2 = 833

QUESTION: 88

Let where x ∈R and k ≥ 1. Then f4(x) – f6(x) equals

Solution:

QUESTION: 89

A bird is sitting on the top of a vertical pole 20 m high and its elevation from a point O on the ground is 45°. It flies off horizontally straight away from the point O. After one second, the elevation of the bird from O is reduced to 30°. Then the speed (in m/s) of the bird is

Solution:

t = 1 s
From figure tan 45°= 20/x
and tan30°= 20/x+y
so, y = 20(√3− 1)
i.e., speed = 20(√3 − 1) m/s.
