Question

Find the asymptotes of the hyperbola xy – 3y – 2x = 0.

Solution

Correct option is

x – 3 = 0 and y – 2 = 0

 

Since equation of a hyperbola and its asymptotes differ in constant terms only, 

∴ Pair of asymptotes is given by 

          

where λ is any constant such that it represents two straight lines. 

    

  

From (i), the asymptotes of given hyperbola are given by 

      

∴ Asymptotes are x – 3 = 0 and y – 2 = 0.
