## Question

### Solution

Correct option is

(–8, 8)

The equation of a line through A i.e., the point of intersection of AB andAC, is

It passes through O(0, 0), then

–1 – λ = 0

From eq. (i),

Similarly,   BC ⊥ AC, we get

a + b = 0                             … (iii)

Solving eqs. (ii) and (iii), we get

b = 8 and a = –8

∴    (ab) is (–8, 8)
