Question 21:

If is the length of perpendicular from the origin on the line and are in then show that

Answer:

Given equation is

Since, p is the length of perpendicular drawn from the origin to the given line

Squaring both the sides, we have

Since, are in AP

Form eq. (i) and (ii), we get

Hence Proved
