Prove that the straight lines joining the origin to the point of intersection of #kx+hy=2hk# and the curve #(x-h)^2+(y-k)^2=a^2# are perpendicular if #h^2+k^2=a^2# ?
Given equation of the straight line
Given equation of a curve
The coordinates of the points in which the straight line meets the curve will satisfy both equations (1) and (2) and hence they satisfy the following equation.
This is the equation of the pair of straight lines joining the origin to the points of intersection of the given lines and the curve. They will be at right angle if the sum o bef the coefficients of
Imposing this condition we get
