Question

If p1p2p3 be the length perpendicular from the points

(m2, 2m), (mm’m + m’) and (m’2, 2m’)

respectively on the line  

               

Solution

Correct option is

G.P.

        

      ….(iii)                                                                                  

From (i), (ii) and (iii), we get:

             

Hence, p1p2 and p3 are in G.P.
