1. Find the equation of the straight lines passing through the origin and making an angle of 45o with the straight line √3x + y = 11.

Solution:

Given:

Equation passes through (0, 0) and make an angle of 45° with the line √3x + y = 11.

We know that, the equations of two lines passing through a point x1,y1 and making an angle α with the given line y = mx + c are 2. Find the equations to the straight lines which pass through the origin and are inclined at an angle of 75o to the straight line x + y + √3(y – x) = a.

Solution:

Given:

The equation passes through (0,0) and make an angle of 75° with the line x + y + √3(y – x) = a.

We know that the equations of two lines passing through a point x1,y1 and making an angle α with the given line y = mx + c are   3. Find the equations of straight lines passing through (2, -1) and making an angle of 45o with the line 6x + 5y – 8 = 0.

Solution:

Given:

The equation passes through (2,-1) and make an angle of 45° with the line 6x + 5y – 8 = 0

We know that the equations of two lines passing through a point x1, y1 and making an angle α with the given line y = mx + c are Here, equation of the given line is,

6x + 5y – 8 = 0

5y = – 6x + 8

y = -6x/5 + 8/5

Comparing this equation with y = mx + c

We get, m = -6/5

Where, x1 = 2, y1 = – 1, α = 45°, m = -6/5

So, the equations of the required lines are x + 11y + 9 = 0 and 11x – y – 23 = 0

∴ The equation of given line is x + 11y + 9 = 0 and 11x – y – 23 = 0

4. Find the equations to the straight lines which pass through the point (h, k) and are inclined at angle tan-1 m to the straight line y = mx + c.

Solution:

Given:

The equation passes through (h, k) and make an angle of tan-1 m with the line y = mx + c

We know that the equations of two lines passing through a point x1, y1 and making an angle α with the given line y = mx + c are

m′ = m

So, Here,

x1 = h, y1 = k, α = tan-1 m, m′ = m.

So, the equations of the required lines are 5. Find the equations to the straight lines passing through the point (2, 3) and inclined at an angle of 450 to the lines 3x + y – 5 = 0.

Solution:

Given:

The equation passes through (2, 3) and make an angle of 450with the line 3x + y – 5 = 0.

We know that the equations of two lines passing through a point x1,y1 and making an angle α with the given line y = mx + c are Here,

Equation of the given line is,

3x + y – 5 = 0

y = – 3x + 5

Comparing this equation with y = mx + c we get, m = – 3

x1 = 2, y1 = 3, α = 45∘, m = – 3.

So, the equations of the required lines are x + 2y – 8 = 0 and 2x – y – 1 = 0

∴ The equation of given line is x + 2y – 8 = 0 and 2x – y – 1 = 0
