Solution:

and the parabola facing towards left.

Eqn. of the parabola is (y – k)^{2} = -4a(x – h)

or, (y + 2)^{2} = -4 × 9(x – 6)

= -36(x + 6)

or, (y + 2)^{2} + 36(x – 6) = 0

(d) the vertex at (-2, 1) and focus at (-2, 4).

Solution:

(e) the length of the latus rectum is 6. and the vertex is at (0, 0), the parabola opening to the right.

Solution:

The length of the latus rectum is 6

∴ 4a = 6

The parabola opens to right and vertex at (0, 0).

∴ Eqn. of the parabola is y^{2} = 4ax = 6x.

(f) the vertex is at (0, 0) the parabola opening to the left and passing through (-1, 2).

Solution:

Vertex at (0, 0), parabola opening to left, passing through (-1, 2).

∴ Let the eqn. of the parabola be y^{2} = -4ax

As it passes through (-1, 2),

we have 4 = -4a (-1) or, a = 1

∴ Eqn. of the parabola is y^{2} = 4x.

(g) the vertex at (0, 0) the parabola opens downwards, and the latus rectum of length 10.

Solution:

Vertex at (0, 0), the parabola opens downward, length of the latus rectum is 10.

∴ 4a = 10

∴ Eqn. of the parabola is

x^{2} = -4ay or, x^{2} = -10y.

(h) the axis is vertical and the parabola passes through the points (0, 2), (-1, 1), (2, 10).

Solution:

Axis is vertical, parabola passes through the points (0, 2), (-1, 1), and (2, 10).

Let the eqn. of the parabola be

x^{2} + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0. As it passes through the above points,

we have 0 + 0 + 2f . 2 + c = 0

⇒ c = -4f, 1 – 2g + 2f . 1 + c = 0

⇒ c = 2g – 2f – 1 and

4 + 2g . 2 + 2f . 10 + c = 0

⇒ c = -4g – 20f – 4

∴ -4f = 2g – 2g – 1

∴ Equation of the parabola is

x^{2} + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0

or, x^{2} + 2x – y + 2 = 0

or, y = x^{2} + 2x + 2

(i) the axis is horizontal and the parabola passes through the points (2, -1), (-2, -4), and (-1, 3).

Solution:

Le the eqn. of the parabola be

y^{2} + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0

As it passes through the points (2, -1), (-2, -4), and (-1, 3)

we have 1 + 2g . 2 +2f (-1) + c = 0 …(1)

16 + 2g (-2) + 2f (-4) + c = 0 …(2)

and 9 + 2g (-1) + 2f . 3 + c = 0 …(3)

∴ From eqn. (1) → 1 + 4g – 2f + c = 0

⇒ c = 2f – Ag – 1

Eqn. (2) → 16 – 4g – 8f + c = 0

⇒ c = 8f + 4g – 16

and eqn. (3) → 9 – 2g + 6f + c = 0

⇒ c = 2g – 6f – 9

∴ – 1 + 2f – 4g = 8f + 4g – 16

or, -6f = 8g – 15 or, f = \(\frac{8 g-15}{-6}\)

Again -1 + 2f – 4g = 2g – 6f – 9

or, 8f = 6g – 8 or, f = \(\frac{6 g-8}{8}\)

∴ \(\frac{8 g-15}{-6}=\frac{6 g-8}{8}\)

or, 32g – 60 = -18g + 24

or, 50g = 84

(j) Vertex at (1, 3) and the directrix, x + 3 = 0.

Solution:

Vertex at (1, 3), directrix x + 3 = 0

∴ h = 1, k = 3

We have the directrix is x = h – a

∴ h – a = -3

or, a = h + 3 = 4

∴ Eqn. of the parabola is

(y – k)^{2} = 4a(x – h)

or, (y – 3)^{2} = 16(x – 1)

(k) Vertex at (1, -1) and the directrix y – 2 = 0

Solution:

Vertex at (2, -1), directrix y – 2 = 0

∴ h = 1, k = -1

We have the directrix is y = k – a

∴ k – a = 2

or, a = k – 2 = -1 – 2 = – 3

∴ Eqn. of the parabola is

(x – h)^{2} = 4a(y – k)

⇒ (x – 1)^{2} = 4 (-3) (y + 1)

⇒ (x – 1)^{2} = -12 (y + 1)

⇒ (x – 1)^{2} + 12 (y + 1) = 0

(l) the focus at(-2, 3) and the directrix 3x + 4y – 2 = 0.

Solution:

Focus at (-2, 3),

directrix 3x + 4y – 2 = 0.

∴ a = 6

∴ b^{2} = a^{2} – c^{2} = 36 – 25 = 11

Equ. of the ellipse is \(\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2}\) = 1 or, \(\frac{x^2}{25}+\frac{y^2}{4}\) = 1

(e) center at (5, 4) and the major axis, is of length 16 and the minor axis is of length 10.

∴ h = 5, k = 4, 2a = 16, 2b = 10

∴ a = 8, b = 5

Eqn. of the ellipse is \(\frac{(x-h)^2}{a^2}+\frac{(y-k)^2}{b^2}\) = 1

or, \(\frac{(x-5)^2}{64}+\frac{(y-4)^2}{25}\) = 1

Solution:

we have 3 + 4 × \(\frac{1}{4}\) = a^{2} or, a^{2} = 4

∴ Eqn of the ellipse is x^{2} + 4y^{2} = 4

(i) centre at (0, 0), one end of the major axis is (-5, 0) and eccentricity \(\frac{3}{5}\)

Solution:

centre at (0, 0), one end of the major axis is (-5, 0), eccentricity \(\frac{3}{5}\)

∴ a = 5, \(\frac{c}{a}\) = \(\frac{3}{5}\) or, c = 3

∴ b^{2} = a^{2} – c^{2} = 25 – 9 = 16

∴ Eqn. of the ellipse is \(\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2}\) = 1 or, \(\frac{x^2}{25}+\frac{y^2}{16}\) = 1

Solution:

Here 2b = 6 ⇒ b = 3, \(\frac{c}{a}\) = 2

or, c = 2a

We have a^{2} + b^{2} = c^{2}

or, a^{2} + 9 = 4a^{2}

or, 3a^{2} = 9 or, a^{2} = 3

∴ Eqn. of the hyperbola is \(\frac{x^2}{a^2}-\frac{y^2}{b^2}\) = 1 or, \(\frac{x^2}{3}-\frac{y^2}{9}\) = 1

(e) foci at (±2√3, 0) and eccentricity √3.

Solution:

Here c = 2√3, \(\frac{c}{a}\) = √3

or, a = \(\frac{c}{\sqrt{3}}\) = 2

∴ b^{2} = c^{2} – a^{2} = 12 – 4 = 8

∴ Eqn. of the hyperbola is \(\frac{x^2}{a^2}-\frac{y^2}{b^2}\) = 1 or, \(\frac{x^2}{4}-\frac{y^2}{8}\) = 1

(f) centre at (0, 0) transverse axis is along y – axis, the distance between the foci is 14 and the distance between the vertices is 12.

Solution:

Putting y = 3x in the parabola equation.

we have y^{2} = 4ax

or, 9x^{2} = 4ax

or, x = \(\frac{4 a}{9}\)

∴ y = 3x = \(\frac{4 a}{3}\)

∴ The point of contact is (\(\frac{4 a}{9}\), \(\frac{4 a}{3}\))

(b) Find the equation of tangents and normals to the parabola y^{2} = 4ax at the ends of its latus rectum.

Solution:

The endpoints of the latus rectum of the parabola y^{2} = 4ax are (a, 2a) and (a, -2a).

∴ Eqn. of the tangent at (a, 2a) is yy_{1} = 2a (x + x_{1})

or, 2ay = 2a (x + a)

or, y = x + a

or, x – y + a = 0

Eqn. of the tangent at (a, -2a) is -2ay = 2a(x + a).

or, -y = x + a

or, x + y + a = 0

Eqn. of the normal at (a, 2a) is y – y_{1} = \(\frac{-y_1}{2 a}\) (x – x_{1})

or, y + 2a = \(\frac{+2 a}{2 a}\) (x – a)

Solution:

We have lx + my + n = 0

or, y = \(\frac{-l x-n}{m}\)

Now putting the value of y in the parabola Eqn., we have y^{2} = 4ax.

or, \(\frac{-l x-n}{m}\)2 = 4ax

or, l^{2}x^{2} + n^{2} + 2lnx = 4am^{2}x

or, l^{2}x^{2} + x(2ln – 4am^{2}) + n^{2} = 0

a’ = l^{2}, b’ = 2ln – 4am^{2}, c’ = n^{2}

As the line is a tangent to the parabola,

we have b^{’2} – 4a’c’ = 0.

or, (2ln – 4am^{2})^{2} – 4l^{2}x^{2} = 0

or, 4l^{2}n^{2} + 16a^{2}m^{4} – 16alnm^{2} – 4l^{2}n^{2} = 0

or, 16am^{2}(am^{2} – ln) = 0

or, am^{2} – ln = 0

Solution:

Putting y = 2x + 5 in the ellipse eqn.

we have 9x^{2} + 4y^{2} = 36

or, 9x^{2} + 4(2x + 5)^{2} = 36

or, 9x^{2} + 4(4x^{2} + 25 + 20x) = 36

or, 9x^{2} + 16x^{2} + 100 + 80x – 36 = 0

or, 25x^{2} + 80x + 64 = 0 …..(1)

∴ b^{2} – 4ac = (80)^{2} – 4 × 25 × 64

= 6400 – 6400 = 0

∴ The line y = 2x + 5

touches the ellipse 9x^{2} + 4y^{2} = 36.

Solution:

Foci at (±3, 0) and directrices x = ±2.

∴ c = 3, \(\frac{a^2}{c}\) = 2, a^{2} = 2c = 6

∴ b^{2} = c^{2} – a^{2} = 9 – 6 = 3

∴ Eqn. of the ellipse \(\frac{x^2}{a^2}-\frac{y^2}{b^2}\) = 1

or, \(\frac{x^2}{6}-\frac{y^2}{3}\) = 1 or, x^{2} – 2y^{2} = 6

Solution:

The transverse axis is 6, the conjugate axis is 4, the centre is at (0, 0).

∴ 2a = 6, 2b = 4

∴ a = 3, b = 2

∴ c = \(\sqrt{a^2+b^2}=\sqrt{9+4}=\sqrt{13}\)

The foci are (±c, 0) = (±√13 , 0)

∴ Length of the latus rectum = \(\frac{2 b^2}{a}=\frac{2 \times 4}{3}=\frac{8}{3}\)

Solution:

x + y + 2 = 0

or, y = -x – 2

putting y = -x – 2 in the hyperbola equation we have 3x^{2} – 5y^{2} = 30

or, 3x^{2} – 5 (-x – 2)^{2} = 30

or, 3x^{2} – 5 (x^{2} + 4 + 4x) = 30

or, 3x^{2} – 5x^{2} – 20 – 20x = 30

or, 2x^{2} + 20x + 50 = 30

or, x^{2} + 10x + 25 = 0

b^{2} – 4ac = 100 – 4 × 25 = 0

The line x + y + 2 = 0 touches the hyperbola 3x^{2} – 5y^{2} = 30

Now solving x^{2} + 10x + 25 = 0

we have x = – 5.

y = – x – 2 = 5 – 2 = 3

The point of contact is (-5, 3).

Eqn. of the normal is

y – y_{1} = m (x – x_{1})

or, y – 3 = 1 (x + 5)

or, x – y + 8 = 0
