Maths Conic Sections Previous Year Questions With Solutions
Q1. On the parabola y = x^{2}, the point least distance from the straight line y = 2x − 4 is ________.
a) (1,1)
b) (2,1)
c) (1,4)
d) (0,1)
a) (1,1)
Solution:
Given, parabola y = x^{2} …..(i)
Straight line y = 2x − 4 …..(ii)
From (i) and (ii),
x^{2 }− 2x + 4 = 0
Let f (x) = x^{2 }− 2x + 4,
f′(x) = 2x − 2.
For least distance, f′(x) =0
⇒ 2x − 2 = 0
x = 1
From y = x^{2}, y = 1
So, the point least distant from the line is (1, 1).
Q2. If 4x^{2} + py^{2} = 45 and x^{2} − 4y^{2} = 5 cut orthogonally, then the value of p is ______.
a) 5
b) 7
c) 8
d) 9
d) 9
Solution:
Slope of 1^{st} curve (dy / dx)_{I }= −4x / py
Slope of 2^{nd} curve (dy / dx)_{II}= x / 4y
For orthogonal intersection (−4x / py) (x / 4y) = −1
x^{2} = py^{2}
On solving equations of given curves x = 3, y = 1
p (1) = (3)^{2} = 9
p = 9
Q3. If the foci of the ellipse x^{2} / 16 + y^{2} / b^{2} = 1 and the hyperbola x^{2} / 144 − y^{2} / 8 = 1 / 25 coincide, then the value of b^{2} is _______.
a) 7
b) 5
c) 9
d) 11
a) 7
Q4. Let E be the ellipse x^{2} / 9 + y^{2} / 4 = 1 and C be the circle x^{2} + y^{2} = 9. Let P and Q be the points (1, 2) and (2, 1), respectively. Then
a) Q lies inside C but outside E
b) Q lies outside both C and E
c) P lies inside both C and E
d) P lies inside C but outside E
d) P lies inside C but outside E
Q5. The line x − 1 = 0 is the directrix of the parabola, y^{2 }− kx + 8 = 0. Then, one of the values of k is ________.
a) 4, 8
b) 8, 4
c) 8, 4
d) 4, 2
c) 8, 4
Solution:
The parabola is y^{2} = 4 * [k / 4] (x − [8 / k]).
Putting y = Y, x − 8k = X, the equation is Y^{2} = 4 * [k / 4] * X
The directrix is X + k / 4 = 0,i.e. x − 8 / k + k / 4 = 0.
But x − 1 = 0 is the directrix.
So, [8 / k] − k / 4 = 1
⇒ k = −8, 4
Q6. The foci of the ellipse 25 (x + 1)^{2} + 9 (y + 2)^{2} = 225 are at ___________.
a) (2, 5); (4, 9)
b) (1, 3); (1, 5)
c) (1, 2); (1, 6)
d) (1, 4); (1, 3)
c) (1, 2); (1, 6)
25(x + 1)^{2}/225 + 9(y + 2)^{2}/225 = 1
Here, a = √[225 / 25] = 15 / 5, b = √[225/9] = 15 / 3
e = √[1 − 9 / 25] = 4 / 5
Focus = (−1, −2 ± [15 / 3] * [4 / 5])
= (−1, −2 ± 4)
= (1, 2); (1, 6)
Q7. Find the equation of the axis of the given hyperbola x^{2}/3 − y^{2}/2 = 1 which is equally inclined to the axes.
a) x + 1
b) x – 1
c) 1+ x^{2 }
d) 1 – x^{2}
a) x + 1
Solution:
x^{2}/3 − y^{2}/2 = 1
Equation of tangent is equally inclined to the axis i.e., tan θ = 1 = m.
Equation of tangent y = mx + $amb $
Given equation is [x^{2}/3] − [y^{2}/2] = 1 is an equation of hyperbola which is of form [x^{2}/a^{2}] − [y^{2}/b^{2}] = 1.
Now, on comparing a^{2 }= 3, b^{2} = 2
y = 1 * x + $×()2 $
y = x + 1
Q8. The centre of the circle passing through the point (0, 1) and touching the curve y = x^{2} at (2, 4) is __________.
a) (−53 / 10, 5 / 14)
b) (−10 / 17, 13 / 10)
c) (−5 / 16, 53 / 10)
d) (−16 / 5, 53 / 10)
d) (−16 / 5, 53 / 10)
Tangent to the parabola y = x^{2 }at (2, 4) is [1 / 2] (y + 4) = x * 2 or
4x − y − 4 = 0
It is also a tangent to the circle so that the centre lies on the normal through (2, 4) whose equation is x + 4y = λ, where 2 + 16 = λ.
Therefore, x + 4y = 18 is the normal on which lies (h, k).
h + 4k = 18 ….. (i)
Again, distance of centre (h, k) from (2, 4) and (0, 1) on the circle are equal.
Hence, (h − 2)^{2 }+ (k − 4)^{2} = h^{2} + (k − 1)^{2}
So, 4h + 6k = 19 …..(ii)
Solving (i) and (ii), we get the centre = (−16 / 5, 53 / 10)
Q9. The locus of the midpoint of the line segment joining the focus to a moving point on the parabola y^{2} = 4ax is another parabola with the directrix ___________.
a) 1
b) 4
c) 2
d) 0
d) 0
Solution:
α = [at^{2} + a] / 2, β = [2at + 0] / 2
⇒ 2α = at^{2} + a, at = β
2α = a * [β^{2} / a^{2}] + a or
2aα = β^{2} / a^{2}
The locus is y^{2} = 4a / 2 (x − [a / 2])
= 4b (x − b), (b = a / 2)
Directrix is (x − b) + b = 0 or x = 0.
Q10. The equation of 2x^{2} + 3y^{2} − 8x − 18y + 35 = k represents a ________.
a) 1
b) 0
c) 7
d) 3
b) 0
Solution:
Given equation, 2x^{2} + 3y^{2} − 8x − 18y + 35 – k = 0
Compare with ax^{2} + by^{2} + 2hxy + 2gx + 2fy + c = 0,we get
a = 2, b = 3, h = 0, g = −4, f = −9, c = 35 − k
Δ = abc + 2fgh − af^{2 }− bg^{2 }− ch^{2} = 6 (35 − k) + 0 − 162 − 48 − 0
Δ = 210 − 6k − 210 = −6k;
Δ = 0, if k = 0
So, that given equation is a point if k = 0.
