## Question

### Solution

Correct option is

2x2 + 2y2 – x – 7y = 0

Equations of circles whose limiting points are (1, 2) and (4, 3) are

(x – 1)2 + (y – 2)2 = 0

or               x2 + y2 – 2x – 4y + 5 = 0                      …(1)

and               (x – 4)2 + (y – 3)2 = 0

or              x2 + y2 – 8x – 6y + 25 = 0                     …(2)

Therefore the corresponding system of co-axial circle is

(x2 + y2 – 2x – 4y + 5) + λ(x2 + y2 – 8x – 6y + 25) = 0       …(3)

It passes through origin then

5 + 25λ = 0

Substituting the value of λ in (3), the required circle is

5(x2 + y2 – 2x – 4y + 5) – (x2 + y2 – 8x – 6y + 25) = 0

or     4x2 + 4y2 – 2x – 14y = 0

or     2x2 + 2y2 – x – 7y = 0
