Time: 16:00 p.m. to 17:00 p.m.

Q.1. Attempt any four of the following. ( 3 marks each )

a) Find the condition that the line y = mx + c is a tangent to the circle x2 + y2 = a2, hence find the equation of tangent in slope form. Also find the point of contact. b) Show that the circles x2 + y2 - 4x + 10y + 20 = 0 and x2 + y2 + 8x - 6y - 24 = 0 touch each other and find the coordinates of point of contact. c) Find the equation of the tangents to the circle x2 + y2 = 10 from (4, -2). Also find their point of contact. d) Show that the straight line 4x + 3y = 26 touches the circle x2 + y2 + 4x + 6y -12 = 0 and find the equation of the parallel tangent. e) Find the acute angle between the tangents to the circle x2 + y2 = 5 from the point (-4, 2).

Q.1. (a) Solution: The given circle is x2 + y2 = a2................(i) and the given line is y = mx + c................(ii) Suppose that line (ii) touches to circle (i) at P(x1, y1) But the equation of tangent to the circle (i) at P(x1, y1) is xx1 + yy1 = a2 i.e. y1y = -x1x + a2 .......(iii) Since equztions (ii) and (iii) represents the same line

x1 =

a 2 m a2 and y1 = c c

But the point P(x1, y1) lies on the circle x12 + y12 = a2.

4 2 2 2 a (m + 1) = a c .

c2 = a2(m2 + 1) ( a 0) This is the required condition for tangency.
