Question

Solution

Correct option is

x + 2y – 1 = 0

Given circle is          x2 + y2 – 2x = 0

Centre of given circle is (1, 0)

Since normal is parallel to          x + 2y = 3

Let the equation of normal is      x + 2y = λ

Since normal passes through the centre of the circle i.e., (1, 0)

Then                  1 + 0 = λ

∴                              λ = 1

Then equation of normal is     x + 2y = 1

or                                       x + 2y – 1 = 0
