(J) Comprehension

## Comprehension # (For Q. No. 1-5)

Cartesion graph of any equation Ax2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0 in which A, B and C are not all zero, is
nearly always a conic section. The exceptions are cases when there is no graph at all or the graph contains
two paralle lines.
To elminate xy terms in the equation of conic, we rotate the coordinate axis. The equations for rotation in new
coordinate axes (X-axis and Y-axis) are
x = X cos – Y sin 
y = X sin + Y cos 

where  is the angle by which the old coordinate axes are rotated in anti-clockwise sense to obtain new axes
(X-axis and Y-axis)

## Applying above rotation to the equation of conic we get

AX2 + BXY + CY2 + DX + EY + F = 0

## New and old coefficiens are retated as

A = A cos2 + B cos  sin  + C sin2
B = Bcos2 + (C – A) sin2
C = A sin2 – B sin  cos  + C cos2
D = D cos + E sin 
E = – D sin  + E cos 
F = F
Thus to eliminate the coefficient of xy, we rotate the coordinate axes by angle  , such that
B cos 2 + (C – A) sin 2 = 0

 A C
 2 = cot–1  
 B 
It is then easy to check the nature of original conic by applying following test to the new equation
AX2 + CY2 + DX + EY + F = 0
(i) if AC = 0 and A, C are not both zero, then graph is parabola
(ii) AC > 0 and A C, then graph is Ellipse
(iii) AC < 0 then graph is Hyperbola

44. If x and y axis are rotated by an angle in counterclockwise direction about origin, then the equation of

hyperbola 2xy = 9 transfers to

46. If axes be rotated by a positive obtuse angle '' such that the transformed equation of the curve
3x2 – 6xy + 3y2 + 2x – 7 = 0 does not contain any term of XY, then coefficient of X2 in the transformed equation
