Question

A straight line through the origin O meets the parallel lines 4x + 2y = 9 and 2x + y + 6 = 0 at points P and Q respectively. Then the point Odivides the segment PQ in the ratio

Solution

Correct option is

3 : 4

Origin lies between the two lines. Any line through O(0, 0) is

             

             

          

Dividing
