Question

# A straight line L through the point $$(3,-2)$$ is inclined at an angle $$60$$ to the line $$\sqrt { 3 } x+y=1$$. If L also intersects the x-axis, the equation of L is-

A
y+3x+233=0
B
y3x+2+33=0
C
3yx+3+23=0
D
3y+x3+23=0

Solution

## The correct option is D $$y-\sqrt { 3 }x+2+3\sqrt { 3 }=0$$$$\sqrt{3}x+y=1\implies m=\tan \theta =-\sqrt{3}\implies$$ this line makes an angle of $$120^{\circ}$$ with x-axis.Since $$L$$ makes an angle $$60^{\circ}$$ with this line.$$\implies L$$ must be either x- axis $$($$ which is not correct because given $$L$$ intersect the x-axis$$)$$ or a line making an angle $$60^{\circ}$$ with the x-axis.$$\implies m=\tan 60^{\circ}=\sqrt{3}$$ $$L:y=m{x}+c$$$$L:y=\sqrt{3}x+c$$ $$L$$ passes through $$(3,-2)\implies -2=3\sqrt{3}+c\implies c=-2-3\sqrt{3}$$$$L:y-\sqrt{3}x+2+3\sqrt{3}=0$$ Mathematics
