Question

# If the length of the tangent from $$(f, g)$$ to the circle $$x^{2} + y^{2} = 6$$ be twice the length of the tangent from $$(f, g)$$ to the circle $$x^{2} + y^{2} + 3x + 3y = 0$$, then will $$f^{2} + g^{2} + 4f + 4g + 2 = 0$$

Solution

## We know that,Length of Tangent from a Point (a,b) to a Circle $$x^2+y^2+2gx+2fy+c=0$$is $$L=\sqrt{a^2+b^2+2ga+2fb+c}$$So, According to Question$$\sqrt{f^2+g^2-6}=2\sqrt{f^2+g^2+3f+3g}\Rightarrow f^2+g^2-6=4(f^2+g^2+3f+3g)\\\Rightarrow 3f^2+3g^2+12f+12g+6=0\\ \Rightarrow f^2+g^2+4f+4g+2=0$$Maths
