Thus, its equation will be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

(i) Here, h = −2, k = 3 and a = 4

∴ Required equation of the circle:

x+22+y-32=42

⇒x+22+y-32=16

(ii) Here, h = a, k = b and radius = a2+b2

∴ Required equation of the circle:

x-a2+y-b2=a2+b2

⇒x2+y2-2ax-2by=0

(iii) Here, h = 0, k = −1 and radius = 1

∴ Required equation of the circle:

x-02+y+12=12

⇒x2+y2+2y=0

(iv) Here, h = acosα, k = asinα and radius = a

∴ Required equation of the circle:

⇒x2+a2cos2α-2axcosα+y2+a2sin2α-2aysinα=a2⇒x2+a2sin2α+cos2α-2axcosα+y2-2aysinα=a2⇒x2+a2-2axcosα+y2-2aysinα=a2⇒x2+y2-2axcosα-2aysinα=0

(v) Here, h = a, k = a and radius = 2a

∴ Required equation of the circle:

x-a2+y-a2=2a2

⇒x2+a2-2ax+y2+a2-2ay=2a2⇒x2+y2-2ay-2ax=0

**Q2.**

**Answer :**

Let (h, k) be the centre of a circle with radius a.

Thus, its equation will be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

(i) Given:

(x − 1)2 + y2 = 4

Here, h = 1, k = 0 and a = 2

Thus, the centre is (1, 0) and the radius is 2.

(ii) Given:

(x + 5)2 + (y + 1)2 = 9

Here, h = −5, k = −1 and radius = 3

Thus, the centre is (−5, −1) and the radius is 3.

(iii) Given:

x2+y2-4x+6y=5

The given equation can be rewritten as follows:

x-22+y+32-4-9=5

⇒x-22+y+32=18

Thus, the centre is (2, −3).

And, radius = 18=32

(iv) Given:

x2+y2-x+2y-3=0

The given equation can be rewritten as follows:

x-122+y+12-14-1-3=0

⇒x-122+y+12=174

Thus, the centre is 12,-1 and and the radius is 172.

**Q3.**

**Answer :**

Let (h, k) be the centre of a circle with radius a.

Thus, its equation will be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

Given:

h = 1, k = 2

∴ Equation of the circle = x-12+y-22=a2 …(1)

Also, equation (1) passes through (4, 6).

∴ 4-12+6-22=a2

⇒9+16=a2⇒a=5 ∵a>0

Substituting the value of a in equation (1):

x-12+y-22=25

⇒x2+1-2x+y2+4-4y=25⇒x2-2x+y2-4y=20⇒x2+y2-2x-4y-20=0

Thus, the required equation of the circle is x2+y2-2x-4y-20=0.

**Q4.**

**Answer :**

The point of intersection of the lines x + 3y = 0 and 2x − 7y = 0 is (0, 0).

Let (h, k) be the centre of a circle with radius a.

Thus, its equation will be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

The point of intersection of the lines x + y + 1 = 0 and x − 2y + 4 = 0 is (−2, 1).

∴ h = −2, k = 1

∴ Equation of the required circle = x+22+y-12=a2 …(1)

Also, equation (1) passes through (0, 0).

∴ 0+22+0-12=a2

⇒4+1=a2⇒a=5 ∵a>0

Substituting the value of a in equation (1):

x+22+y-12=5

⇒x2+4+4x+y2+1-2y=5⇒x2+4x+y2-2y=0

Hence, the required equation of the circle is x2+y2+4x-2y=0.

**Q5.**

**Answer :**

Let (h, k) be the centre of a circle with radius a.

Thus, its equation will be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

The centre of the required circle lies on the positive direction of the y-axis at a distance 6 from the origin.

Thus, the coordinates of the centre are (0, 6).

∴ h = 0, k = 6

∴ Equation of the circle = x-02+y-62=a2 …(1)

Also, a = 4

Substituting the value of a in equation (1):

x-02+y-62=16

⇒x2+y2+36-12y=16⇒x2+y2-12y+20=0

Hence, the required equation of the circle is x2+y2-12y+20=0.

**Q6.**

**Answer :**

Let (h, k) be the centre of a circle with radius a.

Thus, its equation will be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

The intersection point of 2x + y = 6 and 3x + 2y = 4 is (8, −10).

The diameters of a circle intersect at the centre.

Thus, the coordinates of the centre are (8, −10).

∴ h = 8, k = −10

Thus, the equation of the required circle is x-82+y+102=a2 …(1)

Also, a = 10

Substituting the value of a in equation (1):

x-82+y+102=100

⇒x2+y2-16x+64+100+20y=100⇒x2+y2-16x+20y+64=0

Hence, the required equation of the circle is x2+y2-16x+20y+64=0.

**Q7.**

**Answer :**

Let (h, k) be the centre of a circle with radius a.

Thus, its equation will be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

(i) Let the required equation of the circle be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

It is given that the circle passes through the points (6, 0) and (0, 6).

∴ 6-h2+0-k2=62

And, 0-h2+6-k2=62

⇒6-h2+-k2=36⇒36+h2-12h+k2=36⇒h2+k2=12h …(1)

Also, h2+36+k2-12k=36

⇒h2+k2=12k …(2)

From (1) and (2), we get:

12k=12h⇒h=k

∴ From equation (2), we have:

k2+k2=12k⇒k2-6k=0⇒kk-6=0⇒k=6 ∵k>0

Consequently, we get:

h = 6

Hence, the required equation of the circle is x-62+y-62=36 or x2+y2-12x-12y+36=0.

(ii) Let the required equation of the circle be x-h2+y-k2=a2 .

It is given that the circle with radius 6 units touches the x-axis at a distance of 5 units from the origin.

∴ a = 6, h = 5

Hence, the required equation is x-52+y-02=62 or x2+y2-10x-11=0.

(iii) Let the required equation of the circle be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

It is given that the circle touches both the axes.

Thus, the required equation will be x2+y2-2ax-2ay+a2=0.

Also, the circle passes through the point (2, 1).

∴4+1-4a-2a+a2=0

⇒a2-6a+5=0⇒a2-5a-a+5=0⇒a=1,5

Hence, the required equation is x2+y2-2x-2y+1=0 or x2+y2-10x-10y+25=0.

(iv) Let the required equation of the circle be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

Given:

k = −15, a = 17

The circle passes through the point (0, 0).

∴ Equation of the circle:

0-h2+0-152=172

⇒ h=±8

Hence, the required equation of the circle is x-82+y+152=172 or x+82+y+152=172, i.e. x2+y2±16x+30y=0.

**Q8.**

**Answer :**

It is given that the centre is at the point (3, 4).

Let the equation of the circle be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

∴ Equation of the required circle = x-32+y-42=a2 …(1)

Also, the circle touches the straight line 5x + 12y − 1 = 0.

∴ a=53+124-152+122=6213⇒a2=53+124-113=3844169

So, from equation (1), we have:

x-32+y-42=3844169

⇒x2+y2-6x-8y=3844169-25

⇒169×2+y2-6x-8y+381=0

Hence, the required equation of the circle is 169×2+y2-6x-8y+381=0.

**Q9.**

**Answer :**

If the circle lies in the third quadrant, then its centre will be (−a, −a).

The centre lies on x − 2y = 3.

∴ -a+2a=3⇒a=3

∴ Required equation of the circle = x+32+y+32=9

=x2+y2+6x+6y+9=0

If the circle lies in the fourth quadrant, then its centre will be (a, −a),

∴ a+2a=3⇒a=1

∴ Required equation of the circle = x-12+y+12=1

= x2+y2-2x+2y+1=0

**Q10.**

**Answer :**

Let the required equation of the circle be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

The point of intersection of the lines 2x − 3y + 4 = 0 and 3x + 4y − 5 = 0 is -117, 2217.

∴ Centre = -117,2217

Also, the circle passes through the origin.

∴ a2=1172+22172=485289

Hence, the required equation of the circle is x+1172+y-22172=485289.

**Q11.**

**Answer :**

It is given that a circle of radius 4 units touches the coordinate axes in the first quadrant.

Centre of the given circle = (4, 4)

The equation of the given circle is x-42+y-42=16.

The images of this circle with respect to the line mirrors x = 0 and y = 0. They have their centres at -4, 4 and 4, -4, respectively.

∴ Required equations of the images = x+42+y-42=16 and x-42+y+42=16

= x2+y2+8x-8y+16=0 and x2+y2-8x+8y+16=0

**Q12.**

**Answer :**

Centre of the given circle = 1, 1

Radius of the given circle = 1

This circle is rolled along the positive direction of the x-axis. When it makes one complete roll, its centre moves horizontally through a distance equal to its circumference, i.e 2π.

Thus, the coordinates of the centre of the new circle will be 1+2π, 1.

Hence, the required equation of the circle is x-1-2π2+y-12=1.

**Q13.**

**Answer :**

Clearly, the centre of the circle lies on the line 4y = x + 7.

The circle passes through A (−3, 4) and B (5, 4).

The slope of the segment joining A and B is zero.

Therefore, the slope of the perpendicular bisector of AB is not defined.

Hence, the perpendicular bisector of AB will be parallel to the y-axis and will pass through -3+52, 4+42 = 1, 4.

The equation of the perpendicular bisector is x=1.

The intersection point of the perpendicular bisector and 4y = x + 7 is 1, 2.

∴ Centre = 1, 2

Radius = 5-12+4-22=20

Hence, the required equation of the circle is x2+y2-2x-4y-15=0.

**Q14.**

**Answer :**

OC is the perpendicular distance from (3, −1) to 2x − 5y + 18 = 0.

∴ OC=23-5-1+184+25=6+5+184+25=29

⇒ Radius = OC2+OB2=29+9=38

∴ Required equation = x-32+y+12=38

= x2+y2-6x+2y=28

**Q15.**

**Answer :**

Case I: The centre lies in first quadrant.

Let the required equation be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

Here, AB = 8 units and L (0, 3)

In △CAM:

⇒CA2=CM2+AM2

⇒CA2=32+42⇒CA=5⇒CL=CA=5

∴ Coordinates of the centre = 5, 3

And, radius of the circle = 5

x-52+y-32=25, i.e. x2+y2-10x-6y=-9

Case II: The centre lies in the second quadrant.

Coordinates of the centre = -5, 3

And, radius of the circle= 5

x+52+y-32=25, i.e. x2+y2+10x-6y=-9

Hence, the equation of the required circle is x±52+y-32=25, i.e. x2+y2±10x-6y=-9.

**Q16.**

**Answer :**

Let the required equation of the circle be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

The circle passes through the points (0, 3) and (0, −3).

∴ 0-h2+3-k2=a2 …(1)

And, 0-h2+-3-k2=a2 …(2)

Solving (1) and (2), we get:

k=0

Given:

Radius = 5

∴ a^{2} = 25

So, from equation (2), we have:

h2+9=25⇒h=±4

Hence, the required equation is x±42+y2=25, which can be rewritten as x2±8x+y2-9=0.

**Q17.**

**Answer :**

According to question, the centre of the required circle lies on the line x + y − 9 = 0.

Let the coordinates of the centre be t, 9-t.

Let the radius of the circle be a.

Here, a is the distance of the centre from the line 2x − y + 1 = 0.

∴ a=2t-9+t+122+-12=3t-85⇒a2=3t-852 …1

Therefore, the equation of the circle is x-t2+y-9-t2=a2. …(2)

The circle passes through (2, 5).

∴ 2-t2+5-9-t2=a2

⇒2-t2+5-9-t2=3t-852 Using 1⇒52t2-12t+20=9t2+64-48t⇒t-62=0⇒t=6

Substituting t = 6 in (1):

a2=1052

Substituting the values of a2 and t in equation (2), we find the required equation of circle to be x-62+y-32=20.

**Answer :**

The given equations of the circles are as follows:

x^{2} + y^{2} − 4x − 6y − 12 = 0, …(1)

x^{2} + y^{2} + 2x + 4y − 10 = 0 …(2)

Let the equation of the required circle be x2+y2+2gx+2fy+c=0.

The centre of the circle x^{2} + y^{2} − 6x + 12y + 15 = 0 is (3, −6).

Area of the required circle = 2πr2

Here, r = radius of the given circle

Now, r = 9+36-15=30

∴ Area of the required circle = 2π30=60π

Let R be the radius of the required circle.

∴ 60π=πR2⇒R2=60

Thus, the equation of the required circle is x-32+y+62=60, i.e. x^{2}+y^{2}-6x+12y=15.

**Q12.**

**Answer :**

Let the equation of the required circle be x2+y2+2gx+2fy+c=0.

It passes through (1, 1) and (2, 2).

∴ 2g+2f+c=-2 …(1)

And, 4g+4f+c=-8 …(2)

From (1) and (2), we have:

-2g-2f=6⇒g+f=-3 …(3)

∴ From (2) and (3), we have:

c=4

Also, g2+f2-c=1⇒g2+f2=1+c=5⇒g+f2-2gf=5⇒gf=2

Using (3), we get:

g=-2,-1

Correspondingly, we have:

f=-1,-2

Therefore, the required equations of the circles are x2+y2-4x-2y+4=0 and x2+y2-2x-4y+4=0.

Hence, there are two such circles.

**Q13.**

**Answer :**

Since, the circles are concentric.

⇒Centre of required circle = Centre of x^{2} + y^{2} − 4x − 6y − 3 = 0

The centre of the required circle is (2, 3).

We know that if a circle with centre (h, k) touches the y-axis, then h is the radius of the circle.

Thus, the radius is 2.

∴ Equation of the circle:

x-22+y-32=22

⇒x2+y2-4x-6y+9=0

**Page 24.28 Ex 24.3**

**Q1.**

**Answer :**

(2, −3) and (−2, 4) are the ends points of the diameter of a circle. The equation of this circle is x-2x+2+y+3y-4=0.

⇒x2-4+y2-4y+3y-12=0⇒x2+y2-y-16=0 …(1)

Equation (1) can be rewritten as

x2+y-122-14-16=0⇒x2+y-122=654

∴ Centre is 0,12 and radius is 652.

**Page 24.29 Ex 24.3**

**Q2.**

**Answer :**

Since the intercept lies on the y-axis, by putting x = 0 in the given equation, we get:

y2-4y-5=0

⇒y=-1, 5

Thus, the length of the intercept on the y-axis is (5 + 1) = 6 units.

**Q3.**

**Answer :**

According to the question:

Sides of the square are x = 6, x = 9, y = 3 and y = 6.

The vertices of the square are (6, 6), (9, 6), (9, 3) and (6, 3).

And, the vertices of two diagonals are (6, 6), (9, 3) and (9, 6), (6, 3).

Hence, the equation of the circle is x-6x-9+y-6y-3 or x2+y2-15x-9y+72=0.

**Q4.**

**Answer :**

Given:

Sides of the rectangle:

x − 3y = 4 …(1)

3x + y = 22 …(2)

x − 3y = 14 …(3)

And, 3x + y = 62 …(4)

The intersection of (1) and (2) is (7, 1).

The intersection of (2) and (3) is (8, −2).

The intersection of (3) and (4) is (20, 2).

The intersection of (1) and (4) is (19, 5).

Hence, the vertices of the rectangle are (7, −1), (8, −2), (20, 2) and (19, 5).

The vertices of the diagonals are (7, −1), (20, 2) and (19, 5), (8, −2).

Thus, the required equation of the circle is x-7x-20+y-1y-2=0 or x2+y2-27x-3y+142=0.

**Q5.**

**Answer :**

Roots of equation x^{2} + 2ax − b^{2} = 0 are -a±a^{2}+b^{2}.

Roots of equation x^{2} + 2px − q^{2} = 0 are -p±p^{2}+q^{2}.

Therefore, coordinates of A and B are -a+a2+b2, -p+p2+q2 and -a-a2+b2, -p-p2+q2 respectively.

Hence, equation of circle is x+a-a2+b2x+a+a2+b2 + y+p-p2+q2y+p+p2+q2=0.

⇒x+a2-a2-b2+y+p2-p2-q2=0

⇒x2+y2+2ax+2yp-p2-q2=0.

Also, radius of circle is a2+b2+p2+q2.

**Q6.**

**Answer :**

Given:

ABCD is a square with side a units.

Let AB and AD represent the x-axis and the y-axis, respectively.

Thus, the coordinates of B and D are (a, 0) and (0, a), respectively.

The end points of the diameter of the circle circumscribing the square are B and D.

Thus, equation of the circle circumscribing the square is x-ax-0+y-0y-a=0 or x2+y2-ax+y=0.

**Q7.**

**Answer :**

The equation of the line can be rewritten as x=y-62.

Substituting the value of x in the equation of the circle, we get:

y-622+ y2-2y-9=0

⇒y-62+ 4y2-8y-36=0⇒y2+36-12y+ 4y2-8y-36=0⇒5y2-20y=0⇒y2-4y=0⇒yy-4=0⇒y=0,4

At y = 0, x = −3

At y = 4, x = −1

Therefore, the coordinates of A and B are -1,4 and -3,0.

∴ Equation of the circle with AB as its diameter:

x+1x+3+y-4y-0=0

⇒x2+4x+y2-4y+3=0

**Q8.**

**Answer :**

Putting x = 0 in 3x + 4y = 12:

y = 3

Putting y = 0 in 3x + 4y = 12:

x = 4

Thus, the line 3x + 4y = 12 meets the axes of coordinates at points A (0, 3) and B (4, 0).

The equation of the circle with AB as the diameter is x-0x-4+y-3y-0=0 or x2-4x+y2-3y=0.

Hence, the required equation is x2-4x+y2-3y=0.

**Q9.**

**Answer :**

The coordinates of A and B are 0,1m and 1l,0, respectively.

Here, the end points of the diameter of the circumcircle are A and B.

∴ Required equation of the circle:

x-0x-1l+y-1my-0=0

⇒x2-xl+y2-ym=0

**Q10.**

**Answer :**

Case I:

If the required circle passes through the origin and (a, b), then the end points of the diameter of the circle will be (0, 0) and (a, b).

∴ Required equation of circle:

x-0x-a+y-0y-b

or x2+y2-ax-by=0

Case II:

If the required circle passes through the origin and (−a, −b), then the end points of the diameter of the circle will be (0, 0) and (−a, −b).

∴ Required equation of circle:

x-0x+a+y-0y+b

or x2+y2+ax+by=0

Hence, the equation of the required circle is x2+y2±ax±by=0.

**Q11.**

**Answer :**

It is given that the end points of the diameter of the circle are (−4, 3) and (12, −1).

∴ Required equation of circle:

x+4x-12+y-3y+1

or x2+y2-8x-2y-51=0 …(1)

Putting x = 0 in (1):

y^{2} − 2y − 51 = 0

⇒ y^{2} − 2y − 51 = 0

⇒ y=1 ± 213

Hence, the intercepts made by it on the y-axis is 1+213-1+213=413.

**Q12.**

**Answer :**

Suppose a=2

From the figure, we see that there will be four circles that pass through the origin and cut off equal chords of length a from the straight lines y=±x.

AB, BC, CD and DA are the diameters of the four circles.

Also, C1A=a2=OC1

Thus, the coordinates of A are a2,a2.

In the same way, we can find the coordinates of B, C and D as -a2,a2, -a2,-a2 and a2,-a2, respectively.

The equation of the circle with AD as the diameter is x-a2x-a2+y-a2y+a2=0, which can be rewritten as x2+y2-2ax=0, i.e. x2+y2-2x=0.

Similarly, the equations of the circles with BC, CD and AB as the diameters are x2+y2+2x=0, x2+y2+2y=0 and x2+y2-2y=0, respectively.

**Q1.**

**Answer :**

Since the intercept lies on the y-axis, by putting x = 0 in the given equation, we get:

**Page 24.30 (Very Short Answers)**

**Q2.**

**Answer :**

We need to find the coordinates of the centre of the circle passing through (0, 0), (4, 0) and (0, −6).

Let the equation of the circle be x-h2+y-k2=a2.

Putting x = y = 0:

h2+k2=a2 …(1)

Putting x = 4, y = 0 in the equation of the circle:

4-h2+0-k2=a2⇒16+h2-8h+k2=a2⇒16-8h+a2=a2 From (1)⇒h=2

Putting x = 0, y = −6 in the equation of the circle:

0-h2+-6-k2=a2⇒36+h2+12k+k2=a2⇒36+12k+a2=a2 From (1)⇒k=-3

Hence, the centre of the circle is 2,-3.

**Q3.**

**Answer :**

The equation of the required circle is x-12+y-22=a2.

The circle passes through (−2, 6).

∴ -2-12+6-22=a2

⇒9+16=a2⇒a=5

∴ Area of the required circle = πa2=π52=25π square units

**Q4.**

**Answer :**

The roots of the equations x^{2} + 2ax − b^{2} = 0 and x^{2} + 2px − q^{2} = 0 are -a±a2+b2 and -p±p2+q2.

Therefore, the coordinates of P and Q are -a+a2+b2, -p+p2+q2 and -a-a2+b2, -p-p2+q2 , respectively.

So, the required equation of the circle is x+a-a2+b2x+a+a2+b2 + y+p-p2+q2y+p+p2+q2=0.

⇒x+a2-a2-b2+y+p2-p2-q2=0

x2+y2+2ax+2yp-p2-q2=0

**Q5.**

The number of integral values of a is 16.

**Q7.**

**Answer :**

It is given that the circle touches the y-axis at the origin.

Thus, the centre of the circle is (h,0) and its radius is h.

Hence, the equation of the circle is x-h2+y2=h2, i.e. x2+y2-2xh=0.

Also, the circle passes through (3, 4).

∴ 25-6h=0⇒h=256

Hence, the required equation of the circle is x-2562+y2=2562, i.e. 3×2+y2-25x=0.

**Q8.**

**Answer :**

Let us put y = mx in the equation (x + 10)^{2} + (y + 10)^{2} = 180.

Now, we have:

(x + 10)^{2} + (mx + 10)^{2} = 180

On simplifying, we get:

x^{2}m^{2}+1+20xm+1+20=0

∴ Discriminant (D) = 400m+12-80(m2+1)=4102m+1m+2

It is given that the line y = mx does not intersect the circle (x + 10)^{2} + (y + 10)^{2} = 180.

Substituting the value of a in equation (1):

x-322+y+22=522⇒2x-324+y+22=254⇒2x-32+4y+22=25⇒x2+y2-3x+4y=0

C1O=C1P+OP⇒32+42=4+a⇒5=4+a⇒a=1

**Q21.**

**Answer :**

(d) none of these

The end points of the diameter of a circle are (x, 3) and (3, 5).

According to the question, we have:

x+32=2, y=5+32⇒x=1, y=4

**Q22.**

**Answer :**

(b) −11

The centre of the circle x^{2} + y^{2} + 6x + 8y − 5 = 0 is (−3, −4).

The circle x^{2} + y^{2} + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0 is concentric with the circle x2 + y2 + 6x + 8y − 5 = 0.

Thus, the centre of x^{2} + y^{2} + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0 is (−3, −4).

∴ g=3, f=4

Also, it is given that (−3, 2) lies on the circle x^{2} + y^{2} + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0.

∴ -32+22+23-3+242+c=0

⇒9+4-18+16+c=0⇒c=-11

**Q23.**

**Answer :**

(c) 2x + y = 0

Let the diameter of the circle be y = mx.

Since the diameter of the circle passes through its centre, (1, −2) satisfies the equation of the diameter.

∴ m=-2

Substituting the value of m in the equation of diameter:

y=-2x

⇒ 2x+y=0

Hence, the required equation of the diameter is 2x+y=0.

**Q24.**

**Answer :**

(b) x^{2} + y^{2} − ax − by = 0

Centre of the circle is a2,b2 and its radius is a22+b22=12a2+b2.

Equation of circle:

x-a22+y-b22=14a2+b2

⇒2x-a2+2y-b2=a2+b2

⇒4×2+a2-4ax+4y2+b2-4by=a2+b2

⇒x2-ax+y2-by=0

**Q25.**

**Answer :**

(a) 1a2+1b2=1c

Given:

x^{2} + y^{2} + 2ax + c = 0 …(1)

And, x^{2} + y^{2} + 2by + c = 0 …(2)

For circle (1), we have:

Centre = -a,0 = C1

For circle (2), we have:

Centre = 0,-b = C2

Let the circles intersect at point P.

∴ Coordinates of P = Mid point of C1C2

⇒ Coordinates of P = -a+02,0-b2=-a2,-b2

Now, we have:

PC1=radius of 1⇒-a+a22+0-b22=a2-c⇒a42+b42=a2-c …3

Also, radius of circle 1 = radius of circle 2⇒a2-c=b2-c⇒a2=b2 …4

From (3) and (4), we have:

a22=a2-c⇒a22=c⇒2a2=1c⇒1a2+1a2=1c⇒1a2+1b2=1c

**Q2.**

**Answer :**

Let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (2, 3) and the directrix is x − 4y + 3 = 0.

**Q3.**

**Answer :**

In a parabola, the vertex is the mid-point of the focus and the point of intersection of the axis and the directrix.

Let (x1, y1) be the coordinates of the point of intersection of the axis and directrix.

(i) It is given that the vertex and the focus of a parabola are (−2, 2) and (−6, −6), respectively.

∴ Slope of the axis of the parabola = -6-2-6+2=-8-4=2

Slope of the directrix = -12

Let the directrix intersect the axis at K (r, s).

∴ r-62=-2, s-62=2⇒r=2, s=10

∴ Required equation of the directrix:

y-10=-12x-2

⇒ 2y+x-22=0.

Now, let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (−6, −6), and the directrix is 2y+x-22=0.

Draw PM perpendicular to 2x+y+22=0.

Then, we have:

SP=PM⇒SP2=PM2⇒x+62+y+62=2y+x-2252⇒5×2+12x+36+y2+12y+36=4y2+x2+484+4xy-88y-44x⇒4×2+y2-4xy+104x+148y-124=0⇒2x-y2-426x+37y-31=0

(ii) It is given that the vertex and the focus of a parabola are (0, 0) and (0, −3), respectively.

Thus, the slope of the axis of the parabola cannot be defined.

Slope of the directrix = 0

Let the directrix intersect the axis at K (r, s).

∴ r+02=0,s-32=0⇒r=0, s=3

∴ Required equation of directrix:

y=3

Let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (0, −3) and the directrix is y=3.

Draw PM perpendicular to y=3.

Then, we have:

SP=PM⇒SP2=PM2⇒x-02+y+32=y-312⇒x2+y2+6y+9=y2-6y+9⇒x2=-12y

(iii) It is given that the vertex and the focus of a parabola are (−1, −3) and (0, −3), respectively.

Thus, the slope of the axis of the parabola is zero.

And, the slope of the directrix cannot be defined.

Let the directrix intersect the axis at K (r, s).

∴ r+02=-1,s-32=-3⇒r=-2, s=-3

∴ Required equation of the directrix:

x+2=0

Let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (0, −3) and the directrix is x+2=0.

Draw PM perpendicular to x+2=0.

Then, we have:

SP=PM⇒SP2=PM2⇒x-02+y+32=x+212⇒x2+y2+6y+9=x2+4x+4⇒y2+6y-4x+5=0

(iv) It is given that the vertex and the focus of a parabola are (a’, 0) and (a, 0), respectively.

Thus, the slope of the axis of the parabola is zero.

And, the slope of the directrix cannot be defined.

Let the directrix intersect the axis at K (r, s).

∴ r+a2=a’, s+02=0⇒r=2a’-a, s=0

∴ Required equation of the directrix is x-2a’+a=0.

Let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (a, 0), and the directrix is x-2a’+a=0.

Draw PM perpendicular to x-2a’+a=0.

Then, we have:

SP=PM⇒SP2=PM2⇒x-a2+y-02=x-2a’+a12⇒y2=x-2a’+a2-x-a2⇒y2=x2+4a’2+a2-4a’x-4aa’+2ax-x2-a2+2ax⇒y2=4a’2-4a’x-4aa’+4ax⇒y2=-4a’-ax-a’

(v) The point of intersection of x+y=1 and x-y=3 is (2, −1).

Thus, the vertex and the focus of the parabola are (2, −1) and (0, 0), respectively.

∴ Slope of the axis of the parabola = 0+10-2=-12

The slope of the directrix is 2.

Let the directrix intersect the axis at K (r, s).

∴ r+02=2,s+02=-1⇒r=4, s=-2

The required equation of the directrix is y+2=2x-4, which can be rewritten as y-2x+10=0.

Let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (0, 0) and directrix is y-2x+10=0.

Draw PM perpendicular to y-2x+10=0.

Then, we have:

SP=PM⇒SP2=PM2⇒x-02+y-02=y-2x+1052⇒5×2+5y2=y-2x+102⇒x2+4y2+4xy+40x-20y-100=0⇒x+2y2+40x-20y-100=0

**Q5.**

**Answer :**

The given equation of the parabola is y^{2} = 4px.

Let PQ be the double ordinate of length 8p of the parabola y2=4px.

Then, we have:

PR = RQ = 4p

Let AR = x_{1}

Then, the coordinates of P and Q are x1,4p and x1,-4p, respectively.

Now, P lies on y^{2}=4px.

∴ 4p2=4px1

⇒x1=4p

So, the coordinates of P and Q are 4p, 4p and 4p,-4p, respectively.

The coordinates of A are (0, 0).

∴ m1=slope of AP=4p-04p-0=1And, m2=slope of AQ=-4p-04p-0=-1

Now, m1m2=-1

Thus, AP is perpendicular to AQ.

Hence, the lines from the vertex to its extremities are at right angles.

**Page 25.22 Ex 25.1**

**Q7.**

**Answer :**

The given equation of the directrix is 3x − 4y = 2. (1)

∴ Slope of the directrix = -3-4=34

Also, the axis is perpendicular to the directrix.

∴ Slope of the axis = -43

The focus lies on the axis of the parabola.

∴ Equation of the axis:

y-3=-43x-3

⇒ 3y-9=-4x+12

⇒ 3y+4x-21=0 (2)

Solving equations (1) and (2):

x=185, y=115

Therefore, the intersection point of the axis and directrix is 185,115.

Also, length of the latus rectum = 2 (Length of the perpendicular from the focus on the directrix)

**Q8.**

**Answer :**

Putting x = 3y in the given equation of the parabola:

9y2=9y⇒9yy-1=0⇒y=0,1

At y = 0, x = 0

At y = 1, x = 3

Therefore, at (1, 3), the abscissa is three times that of the ordinate.

**Q9.**

**Answer :**

CASE I:

Let the equation of the required parabola be y2=4ax (1)

Since (1) passes through (2, 3), we have:

Thus, the required equation is y2=49×8, i.e. 2y2=9x.

CASE II:

Let the equation of the required parabola be y2=-4ax (2)

Since (2) passes through (2, 3), we have:

9=-4a2⇒a=-98

Thus, the required equation is y2=-4-9×8, i.e. 2y2=9x.

Hence, in either case, the required equation of the parabola is 2y2=9x.

**Q10.**

**Answer :**

**Q2.**

**Answer :**

Given:

y2+6y+2x+5=0

⇒y+32+2x-4=0⇒y+32=-2x-2 1

Let Y = y+3, X=x-2

From (1), we have:

Y2=-2X (2)

Putting 4a=2:

a=12

Focus = X=-12, Y=0=x=32, y=-3

Vertex = X=0, Y=0=x=2, y=-3

Thus, we have:

Focus = 32,-3

Vertex = 2,-3

Distance between the vertex and the focus:

32-22+-3+32122=12 units

**Q3.**

**Answer :**

Given:

x^{2} − 4x − 8y + 12 = 0

⇒x-22-4-8y+12=0⇒x-22=8y-1 1

Let Y = y−1, X=x-2

∴ From (1), we have:

X2=8Y (2)

Comparing with x2=4ay:

a=2

Directrix = Y = −a

⇒ y − 1 = −a

⇒y = −a + 1

= −2 + 1

= −1

Therefore, the required equation of the directrix is y=-1.

**Q4.**

**Answer :**

Let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (0, 0) and the directrix is x + y = 4.

Then, we have:

SP=PM⇒SP2=PM2⇒x-02+y-02=x+y-41+12⇒x2+y2=x+y-422⇒2×2+2y2=x2+y2+16+2xy-8y-8x⇒x2+y2-2xy+8x+8y-16=0

**Q5.**

**Answer :**

Let OP be the chord.

Let the coordinates of P be x1, y1.

From the figure, we have:

OP2=x12+y12 (1)

And, tanπ4=y1x1

⇒x1=y1 (2)

Also, x1, y1 lies on the parabola.

∴ y12=4ax1 (3)

Using (2) and (3), we get:

x12=4ax1⇒x1=4a …(4)

∴ From (4), (1) and (2), we have:

OP2=4a2+4a2=32a2⇒OP=42a

Therefore, the length of the chord is 42a units.

**Q6.**

**Answer :**

Let S (a, 0) be the focus of the given parabola.

Let the end points of the focal chord be P at2, 2at and Qat2, -2at.

SP and SQ are segments of the focal chord with lengths b and c, respectively.

∴ SP = b, SQ = c

Also, SP =a-at2+4a2t2= a1+t2And, SQ =a-at2+4a2t2= a1+1t2

Now, we have:

1SP+1SQ=1a1+t2+t2a1+t2=1a

⇒1b+1c=1a⇒b+cbc=1a⇒a=bcb+c

∴ Length of the latus rectum = 4a = 4bcb+c

**Q7.**

**Answer :**

The coordinates of the focal chord are P at2, 2at and Q at2, -2at.

Comparing y^{2} = 8x with y^{2}=4ax:

a = 2

Therefore, the coordinates of the focus S is 2, 0.

Given:

SP = 6

∴ 2-2t22+4t2=6⇒t4+2t2-8=0⇒t2=2

Thus, we have:

SQ = 2-2t22+4t2=2-222+42 = 3

**Q8.**

**Answer :**

Given:

The focus S is at (−2, 1) and the directrix is the line x + y − 3 = 0.

The slope of the line perpendicular to x + y − 3 = 0 is 1.

The axis of the parabola is perpendicular to the directrix and passes through the focus.

∴ Equation of the axis of the parabola = y-1=1x+2 (1)

Intersection point of the directrix and axis is the intersection point of (1) and x + y − 3 = 0.

Let the intersection point be K.

Therefore, the coordinates of K are (0, 3).

Let (h, k) be the coordinates of the vertex, which is the mid-point of the line segment joining K and the focus.

∴ h=0-22, k=3+12h=-1, k=2

**Q9.**

**Answer :**

Given:

The vertex and the focus of a parabola are (−1, 1) and (2, 3), respectively.

∴ Slope of the axis of the parabola = 3-12+1=23

Slope of the directrix = −32

Let the directrix intersect the axis at K (r, s).

**Q1.**

**Answer :**

(a) (5/4, 1)

Given:

The equation of the parabola is y^{2} − x − 2y + 2 = 0.

⇒y-12-1=x-2⇒y-12=x-1

Let X = x-1, Y = y-1

∴ Y2=X

Comparing with Y2=4aX:

a=14

Focus = X=a, Y=0=X=14, Y=0=x=14+1, y=1=x=54, y=1

Hence, the focus is at (5/4, 1).

**Q2.**

**Answer :**

(b) (a, −a)

Given:

The equation of the parabola is (y + a)2 = 8a (x − a).

Putting X= x-a, Y=y+a:

Y2=8aX

Vertex = X=0, Y=0=x-a=0, y+a=0=x=a, y=-a

Hence, the vertex is at (a, −a).

**Q3.**

**Answer :**

(c) (−1, 2)

Given:

The focus S is at (−2, 1) and the directrix is the line x + y − 3 = 0.

The slope of the line perpendicular to x + y − 3 = 0 is 1.

The axis of the parabola is perpendicular to the directrix and passes through the focus.

∴ Equation of the axis of the parabola = y-1=1x+2 (1)

Intersection point of the directrix and the axis is the intersection point of (1) and x + y − 3 = 0.

Let the intersection point be K.

Therefore, the coordinates of K will be (0, 3).

Let (h, k) be the coordinates of the vertex, which is the mid-point of the segment joining K and the focus.

∴ h=0-22, k=3+12h=-1, k=2

Hence, the coordinates of the vertex are (−1, 2).

**Q4.**

**Answer :**

(b) x^{2} − 2xy + y^{2} + 6ax + 10ay − 7a^{2} = 0

Given:

The vertex is at (a, 0) and the directrix is the line x + y = 3a.

The slope of the line perpendicular to x + y = 3a is 1.

The axis of the parabola is perpendicular to the directrix and passes through the vertex.

∴ Equation of the axis of the parabola = y-0=1x-a (1)

Intersection point of the directrix and the axis is the intersection point of (1) and x + y = 3a.

Let the intersection point be K.

Therefore, the coordinates of K are 2a, a.

The vertex is the mid-point of the segment joining K and the focus (h, k).

∴ a=2a+h2, 0=a+k2h=0, k=-a

Let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (h, k) and the directrix is x + y = 3a.

Draw PM perpendicular to x + y = 3a.

Then, we have:

SP=PM⇒SP2=PM2⇒x-02+y+a2=x+y-3a22⇒x2+y+a2=x+y-3a22⇒2×2+2y2+2a2+4ay=x2+y2+9a2+2xy-6ax-6ay⇒x2+y2-7a2+10ay+6ax-2xy=0

**Q5.**

**Answer :**

(a) x = 0

Given:

x = t2 + 1 (1)

y = 2t + 1 (2)

From (1) and (2):

x=y-122+1

On simplifying:

y-12=4x-1

Let Y=y-1 and X=x-1

∴ Y2=4X

Comparing it with y2 = 4ax:

a = 1

Therefore, the equation of the directrix is X = −a , i.e. x-1=-1⇒x=0.

**Q6.**

**Answer :**

(a) 3x + 2y + 14 = 0

Given:

The vertex and the focus of a parabola are (−1, 1) and (2, 3), respectively.

∴ Slope of the axis of the parabola = 3-12+1=23

Slope of the directrix = −32

Let the directrix intersect the axis at K (r, s).

∴ r+22=-1,s+32=1⇒r=-4, s=-1

Equation of the directrix:

y+1=-32x+4

⇒3x+2y+14=0

**Q7.**

**Answer :**

(c) parabola

Suppose PQ is a double ordinate of the parabola y2=4ax.

Let R and S be the points of trisection of the double ordinates.

Let h,k be the coordinates of R.

Then, we have:

OL = h and RL = k

∴RS=RL+LS=k+k=2k⇒PR=RS=SQ=2k⇒LP=LR+RP=k+2k=3k

Thus, the coordinates of P are h, 3k, which lie on y2=4ax.

∴ 9k2=4ah

Hence, the locus of the point (h, k) is 9y2=4ax, i.e. y2=4a9x, which represents a parabola.

**Q8.**

**Answer :**

(a) x + 2y = 4

Given:

The vertex and the focus of a parabola are (1, 4) and (2, 6), respectively.

∴ Slope of the axis of the parabola = 6-42-1=2

Slope of the directrix = −12

Let the directrix intersect the axis at K (r, s).

∴ r+22=1,s+62=4⇒r=0, s=2

Equation of the directrix:

y-2=-12x-0

⇒ x + 2y = 4

**Q9.**

**Answer :**

(b) 1/2

Given:

The vertex and the focus of a parabola are V and S, respectively.

The given equation of parabola can be rewritten as follows:

y+32-9+5+2x=0

⇒y+32+2x=4⇒y+32=4-2x⇒y+32=-2x-2

Let Y=y+3, X=x-2

Then, the equation of parabola becomes Y2=-2X.

Vertex = X=0, Y=0=x-2=0, y+3=0=x=2, y=-3

Comparing with y2 = 4ax:

4a=2⇒a=12

Focus = X=-12, Y=0=x-2=-12, y+3=0=x=32, y=-3

⇒ SV = 2-322+-3+32=12

**Q10.**

**Answer :**

(c) y = −1

Given:

x^{2} − 4x − 8y + 12 = 0

⇒x-22-4-8y+12=0⇒x-22=8y-8⇒x-22=8y-1

Putting X = x − 2, Y = y − 1:

X2=8Y

Comparing with X2=4aY:

a = 2

Equation of the directrix:

Y=-a

⇒ Y=-2

⇒y-1=-2⇒y=-2+1⇒y=-1

**Q11.**

** Answer :**

(a) x^{2} + y^{2} − 2xy + 8x + 8y − 16 = 0

Let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (0, 0) and the directrix is x + y = 4.

Draw PM perpendicular to x + y = 4.

Then, we have:

SP=PM⇒SP2=PM2⇒x-02+y-02=x+y-422⇒x2+y2=x+y-422⇒2×2+2y2=x2+y2+16+2xy-8x-8y⇒x2+y2-2xy+8x+8y-16=0

**Q12.**

**Answer :**

(c) (−1, 2)

Let the coordinates of P and Q be at12, 2at1 and at22, 2at2, respectively.

Slope of PQ = 2at2-2at1at22-at12 ……(1)

But, the slope of PQ is equal to the slope of 2x − y + 4 = 0.

∴ Slope of PQ = -2-1=2

From (1),

2at2-2at1at22-at12=2 …..(2)

Putting 4a = 8,

a = 2

∴ Focus of the given parabola = (a, 0) = 2, 0.

Using equation (2):

4t2-t12t22-t12=2

t2-t1t22-t12=1

⇒t1+t2=1

As, points P and Q lie on 2x-y+4=0

⇒P(at12, 2at1) or P(2t12, 4t1) lie on line 2x-y+4=0⇒22t12-4t1+4=0⇒t12-t1+1=0 …(3)Also, Q(at22, 2at2) or P(2t22, 4t2) lie on line 2x-y+4=0⇒22t22-4t2+4=0⇒t22-t2+1=0 …(4)Adding (3) and (4), we get,⇒t12-t1+1+t22-t2+1=0⇒t12+t22-t1+t2+2=0⇒t12+t22-1+2=0 t1+t2=1, proved above⇒t12+t22=-1

Let x1, y1 be the mid-point of PQ.

Then, we have:

y1=2at2+2at12=2t1+t2=2

And, x1=at12+at222=t12+t22=-1

⇒ x1, y1=-1, 2

**Q13.**

**Answer :**

(a) 42a

Let OP be the chord.

Let the coordinates of P be x1, y1.

From the figure, we have:

OP2=x12+y12 (1)

And, tanπ4=y1x1

⇒x1=y1 (2)

Also, x1, y1 lies on the parabola.

∴ y12=4ax1 (3)

Using (2) and (3):

x12=4ax1⇒x1=4a (4)

∴ From (4), (1) and (2), we have:

OP2=4a2+4a2=32a2⇒OP=42a

Therefore, the length of the chord is 42a units.

**Q14.**

**Answer :**

Let X=x+4, Y=y-1

∴ X2=-12Y

Vertex = X=0,Y=0=x+4=0,y-1=0=x=-4,y=1

Hence, the vertex is at (−4, 1).

∴ Length of the latus rectum = 4a = 12 units

**Q19.**

**Answer :**

(c) 8

Given:

x^{2} − 4x − 8y + 12 = 0

⇒x-22-8y+8=0⇒x-22=8y-8=8y-1

Let X=x-2, Y=y-1

∴ X2=8Y

∴ Length of the latus rectum = 4a = 8 units

**Q20.**

⇒x2+x2=y2⇒x+142=y2+116⇒x+142=8y+116⇒x+142=12y+18

Let X=x+14, Y=y+18

∴ X2=12Y

Comparing with X2=4aY:

a=18

Focus = X=0, Y=a=x=-14, y=0

Hence, the focus is at (−1/4, 0).

**Q21.**

**Answer :**

(d) x = 2at, y = at^{2}

Substituting x = 2at, y = at^{2} in the given equation:

Let P (x, y) be any point on the parabola whose focus is S (1, −1) and the directrix is x + y + 7 = 0.

Draw PM perpendicular to x + y + 7 = 0.

Then, we have:

SP=PM⇒SP2=PM2⇒x-12+y+12=x+y+71+12⇒x-12+y+12=x+y+722⇒2×2+1-2x+y2+1+2y=x2+y2+49+2xy+14y+14x⇒2×2+2-4x+2y2+2+4y=x2+y2+49+2xy+14y+14x⇒x2+y2-45-10y-2xy-18x=0

Hence, the required equation is x^{2} + y^{2} − 2xy − 18x − 10y − 45 = 0.

**Q6.**

**Answer :**

(i) The distance between the foci is 2ae.

∴2ae=16⇒ae=8

e=2

∴ a2=8⇒a=42

Also, b2=a2(e2-1)⇒b2=32(2-1)⇒b2=32

Therefore, the standard form of the hyperbola is given below:

x232-y232=1×2-y2=32

(ii) The distance between the foci is 2ae.

∴ 2ae=13⇒ae=132

⇒b=52

Also, b2=a2(e2-1)⇒522=1322-a2⇒a2=169-254⇒a2=1444=36⇒a=6

Let 2a and 2b be the length of the transverse and conjugate axis and let e be the eccentricity.

⇒x-12a2-y-42b2=1

Distance between the two focii = 2ae

2ae=6+42+4-42⇒2ae=10⇒ae=5⇒a=52

Also, b2=ae2-a2⇒b2=25-254⇒b2=754

Equation of the hyperbola is given below:

4x-1225-4y-4275=1⇒4×2-2x+125-y2-8y+1675=1⇒4×2-8x+425-4y2-32y+6475=1⇒34×2-8x+4-4y2-32y+64=75⇒12×2-24x+12-4y2+32y-64=75⇒12×2-24x-4y2+32y-127=0

If the other focus is S’m,n, then it is calculated in the following way:

4=17+m2⇒m=-9 And -1=-1+n2⇒n=-1

Thus, the other focus is -9,-1.

Distance between the vertices: 2a=16+82+-1+12⇒2a=24⇒a=12

Distance between the foci:

2c=17+92+-1+12⇒2c=26⇒c=13

Also, c2=a2+b2⇒b2=169-144⇒b2=25

Equation of the hyperbola is given below:

x-42144-y+1225=1⇒x2-8x+16144-y2+2y+125=1⇒25×2-200x+400-144y2+288y+144=3600⇒25×2-200x-144y2-288y-3344=0

(iii) The centre of the hyperbola is the midpoint of the line joining the two focii.

So, the coordinates of the centre are 4+82,2+22, i.e. 6, 2.

Let 2a and 2b be the length of the transverse and conjugate axis. Let e be the eccentricity.

⇒x-62a2-y-22b2=1

Distance between the two focii = 2ae

2ae=4-82+2-22⇒2ae=16⇒ae=8⇒a=4

Also, b2=ae2-a2⇒b2=64-16⇒b2=48

Equation of the hyperbola:

x-6216-y-2248=1⇒x2-12x+3616-y2-4y+448=1⇒3×2-12x+36-y2-4y+4=48⇒3×2-36x+108-y2+4y-4=48⇒3×2-36x-y2+4y+56=0

(iv) The Vertices of the hyperbola are 0,±7.

∴ b=7

The foci is 0,±283.

∴ be=283

Also, a2=b2e2-1⇒a2=2832-49⇒a2=3439

Therefore, the equation of the hyperbola is-9×2343+y249=1.

**Q8.**

**Answer :**

The lengths of the conjugate axis and the transverse axis are 2b and 2a, respectively.

We have:

**Q9.**

**Answer :**

(i) The equation of the hyperbola with centre (x_{0},y_{0}) is given by

x-x02a2-y-y02b2=1Focus = ae+x0, y0

Vertex = (a+x_{0}, y_{0})

∴ ae=2 and a=1b2=22-a2⇒b2=22-12⇒b2=3

⇒x-321-y-223=1⇒3x-32-y-22=3

(ii) The equation of the hyperbola with centre (x0,y0) is given by

x-x02a2-y-y02b2=1Focus = ae+x0, y0

∴ ae=-2⇒a=-1b2=22-a2⇒b2=-22–12⇒b2=3

⇒x-621-y-223=1⇒3x-62-y-22=3

**Q10.**

**Answer :**

Equation of the hyperbola:

x2a2-y2b2=1

If the axes of the hyperbola are equal, then a=b.

Then, equation of the hyperbola becomes x2-y2=a2.

∴ b2=a2e2-1⇒a2=a2e2-1⇒1=e2-1⇒e2=2⇒e=2

Thus, the centre C0,0 and the focus are given by S2a,0 and S’-2a,0, respectively.

Let Pα,β be any point on the parabola.

So, it will satisfy the equation.

α2-β2=a2

∴ SP2=2a-α2+β2=2a2+α2-22aα+β2

S’P2=-2a-α2+β2=2a2+α2+22aα+β2

Now, SP2.S’P2=2a2+α2-22aα+β22a2+α2+22aα+β2=4a4+4a2α2+β2+α2+β22-8a2α2=4a2a2-2α2+4a2α2+β2+α2+β22=4a2α2-β2-2α2+4a2α2+β2+α2+β22=-4a2α2+β2+4a2α2+β2+α2+β22=α2+β22=CP4

∴ SP.S’P=CP2

⇒b2=9-4⇒b2=5

Thus, the equation of the hyperbola is x24-y25=1.

Thus, the equation of the hyperbola is -x239+y225=1.

(iii) The vertices of the hyperbola are 0,±3 and the foci are 0,±5.

Thus, the value of a=3 and ae=5.

⇒b2=25-9⇒b2=16

Thus, the equation of the hyperbola is -x216+y29=1.

(iv) The foci of the hyperbola are ±5,0 and the transverse axis is 8.

Thus, the value of ae=5 and 2a = 8.

⇒a=4

⇒b2=25-16⇒b2=9

Thus, the equation of the hyperbola isx216-y29=1.

(v) The foci of the hyperbola are 0,±13 and the conjugate axis is 24.

Thus, the value of ae=13 and 2b = 24.

⇒ b = 12

Now, using the relation b2=a2(e2-1), we get:

⇒a2=169-144⇒a2=25

Thus, the equation of the hyperbola is-x2144+y225=1.

(vi) The foci of the hyperbola are ±35,0 and the latus rectum is 8.

Thus, the value of ae=35

and 2b2a=8⇒b2=4a

Now, using the relation b2=a2(e2-1), we get:

⇒4a=45-a2⇒a2+4a-45=0⇒a-5a+9=0⇒a=-9, 5

b2=-36 or 20

Since negative value is not possible, it is equal to 20.

Thus, the equation of the hyperbola isx225-y220=1.

(vii) The foci of the hyperbola are ±4,0 and the latus rectum is 12.

Thus, the value of ae=4

and 2b2a=12⇒b2=6a

Now, using the relation b2=a2(e2-1), we get:

⇒6a=16-a2⇒a2+6a-16=0⇒a-2a+8=0⇒a=2, or -8

b2=12 or -48

Since negative value is not possible, its value is 12.

Thus, the equation of the hyperbola isx24-y212=1.

(viii) The vertices of hyperbola are ±7,0 and eccentricity is 43

Thus, the value of a=7.

Now, using the relation b2=a2(e2-1), we get:

⇒b2=49169-1⇒b2=49×79=3439

Thus, the equation of the hyperbola isx249-9y2343=1.

(ix) The foci of hyperbola are 0,±10 that pass through 2,3.

Thus, the value of ae=10.By squaring both the sides, we get:ae2=10⇒a2+b2=10⇒b2=10-a2

Let the equation of the hyperbola be y2a2-x2b2=1.

**Q1.**

**Answer :**

Equation of the hyperbola:

9 x2 – 16y 2 = 144 ….. (1)

Equation (1) can be rewritten in the following way:

9×2144 – 16y 2144 = 144144⇒x216 – y 29 = 1

⇒x242-y232=1

This becomes the standard equation of the hyperbola with its major axis a=4 and minor axis b=3.

Eccentricity, e = a2+b2a

Substituting the value of a and b, we get:

e = 42+324 =16+94 =54

Therefore, the eccentricity is 54.

**Q2.**

**Answer :**

The lengths of the latus rectum and the transverse axis are 2b2a and 2a, respectively.

According to the given statement, length of the latus rectum is half of its trasverse axis.

∴2b2a = 12×2a⇒2b2a = a ⇒ 2b2=a2

Eccentricity, e = a2+b2a

Substituting the value b2=a22, we get:

e = a2+a22a =a32a =32

Therefore, the eccentricity is 32.

**Q3.**

Equation of the hyperbola:

9×2-16y2=144 ….. (1)

This equation (1) can be rewritten in the following way:

⇒9×2144-16y2144=1⇒x216-y29=1

This becomes a standard form of the hyperbola with transverse axis a=4 and conjugate axis b=3.

Eccentricity of the hyperbola, e=a2+b2a =42+324 =16+94 =54

The foci of the hyperbola are of the form ae,0 and -ae,0.

Therefore, the foci are 5,0 and -5,0.4

This is the standard form of hyperbola with a=125and b=95.

Eccentricity of the hyperbola, e=1252+952125 =1512

The foci of the hyperbola are of the form ae,0 and -ae,0.

So, foci of the hyperbola are 3,0 and -3,0.

The foci of the hyperbola coincide with the foci of the ellipse.

For ellipse,

a=4

Substituting the value of a and b, we get:

Length of the latus rectum =2×423=323

**Q7.**

**Answer :**

The standard equation of hyperbola is given below:

x2a2-y2b2=1

Let the latus rectum be QR, which passes through one of the focus. QR subtends a right angle at point P.

It passes through the focus ae,±y.

∴ae2a2-y2b2=1⇒y2b2=ae2a2-1⇒y2b2=e2-1⇒y=±be2-1

Now, the slope of PQ is be2-1ae+a and the slope of PR is-be2-1ae+a.

The lines PQ and PR are perpendicular, so the product of the slope is -1.

⇒be2-1ae+a×-be2-1ae+a=-1⇒b2e2-1=ae+a2⇒b2e2-1=a2e+12⇒e2-12=e+12⇒e4-2e2+1=e2+2e+1⇒e4-3e2-2e=0⇒ee3-3e-2=0⇒ee-2e+1e+1=0

∴ e=0,-1,2

The value of e can neither be negative nor zero.

Therefore, the value of eccentricity is 2.
