Question

# The equation of the bisector of the acute angle between the lines $$\displaystyle 2x+ y + 4 = 0$$ and $$\displaystyle x +2y = 1$$ is

A
x+y+5=0
B
x+y+1=0
C
xy=5
D
x+y=5

Solution

## The correct option is A $$\displaystyle x+y+1=0$$The angle of bisector of $$2x+y+4=0$$ and $$x+2y=1$$ is $$\displaystyle \frac { 2x+y+4 }{ \sqrt { 4+1+16 } } =\pm \frac { x+2y-1 }{ \sqrt { 1+4+1 } } \Rightarrow \frac { 2x+y+4 }{ \sqrt { 21 } } =\pm \frac { x+2y+1 }{ \sqrt { 6 } }$$Now for $$2x+y+4=0$$ and $$-x-2y+1=0$$$${ a }_{ 1 }{ a }_{ 2 }+{ b }_{ 1 }{ b }_{ 2 }=2\times \left( -1 \right) +1\times \left( -2 \right) <0$$Therefore equation of angle bisector of acute angle is with negative sign$$\displaystyle \frac { 2x+y+4 }{ \sqrt { 21 } } =-\frac { x+2y+1 }{ \sqrt { 6 } } \Rightarrow x+y+1=0$$Mathematics
