Question

Find the bisector of acute angle between the lines x + y – 3 = 0 and 7x – y+ 5 = 0.

Solution

Correct option is

6x + 2y – 5 = 0

 

Firstly, make the constant terms (c1c2) positive then

 –x – y + 3 = 0 and 7x – y + 5 = 0 

                                = –7 + 1 = –6      

i.e.,   a1a2 + b1b2 < 0 

Hence “+” sign gives the acute bisector. 

  

     

  

∴   12x + 4y – 10 = 0   or   6x + 2y – 5 = 0  

is the acute angle bisector.
