Question

# Shortest distance between $$(0,0)$$ and $${ x }^{ 2 }+{ y }^{ 2 }+xy=60$$ is

A
10
B
210
C
310
D
410

Solution

## The correct option is B $$2\sqrt { 10 }$$Given curve is $$x^2+y^2+xy=60$$differentiate w.r.t x$$2x+2y\dfrac{dy}{dx}+y+x\dfrac{dy}{dx}=0$$$$\implies (x+2y)\dfrac{dy}{dx}=-(2x+y)\\\implies (\dfrac{dy}{dx})_{h,k}=-\dfrac{(2h+k)}{h+2k}$$Let the line from (0,0) cuts the curve at (h,k)Equation of line is$$y-0=\dfrac{h+2k}{2h+k}(x-0)$$As this line also passes through (h,k)$$k=\dfrac{h+2k}{2h+k}\times h\\\implies 2hk+k^2=h^2+2hk$$we get $$k=\pm h$$Since curve is also passes through (h,k)so$$h^2+k^2+hk=60\\\implies h^2+h^2+h^2=60\\\implies h^2=20\\\implies h=\sqrt{20}$$Distance of (0,0) from (h,k)=$$\sqrt{20+20}=\sqrt{40}=2\sqrt{10}$$Physics
