  5. FOR 100% SUCCESS IN JEE MAIN AND ADVANCED (IIT-JEE) Example Find points on the curve 25-1 at which the tangent are y-fix) i) parallel to x-axis (ii) parallel to y-axis 90 Sol. Differentiating T+25=1with respect to x, we get dy-25 x 2 25 dx i) Now, the tangent is parallel to the x-axis if the slope of the tangent is zero which gives 25 x 0 This is possible if x = 0. Then-+ 1 for x = 0 gives y-25, i.e., y = 5 Thus, the points at which the tangents are parallel to the x-axis are (0, 5) and (0,-5) (ii) the tangent line is parallel to y axis if the slope of the normal is 0 which give Therefore, = 1 for y-0 gives x = 2. Hence, the points at which the tangents are parallel to the y-axis are (2, 0) and (-2, 0) 4 25 s50, i.e, y 0 4 25 MATHEMATICS FOR IIT-JEE ER. VINEET LOOMBA (IIT RooRKee)

  8. FOR 100% SUCCESS IN JEE MAIN AND ADVANCED (IIT-JEE) 2 Example Find the equation of all lines having slope 2 and being tangent to the curve y + 2 So Slope of the tangent to the given curve at any point (x, y) is given by - dx (x -3)2 2 But the slope is given to be 2. Therefore 2 (x-3)2 or (x 321 or x 31 or x -2, 4 Now x - 2 gives y 2 and x 4 gives y2. Thus, there are two tangents to the given curve with slope 2 and passing through the points (2, 2) and (4, -2). The equation of tangent through (2, 2) is given by y-2-2(x-2) or y-2x+2-0 and the equation of the tangent through (4, -2) is given by y-(-2) = 2(x-4) or y-2x + 10 = 0 MATHEMATICS FOR IIT-JEE ER.

So consider only h-2. Using (ii) and h-2, we get dy 3 x drth, k ) y-2](h, k ) k -2 Equatoin oftangent is Thus tangent from (1, 2) meets the curve in points 3h k-2 As tangent passes through (1,2), (2, 2 213)-and (2, 2-2V3).
