Q. 4

# Reduce the lines

Given:

The normal forms of the lines 3x − 4y + 4 = 0 and 2x + 4y − 5 = 0.

To find:

In given normal form of a line, Which is nearer to the origin.

Explanation:  Dividing both sides by  …… (1)

Now 2x + 4y = - 5

- 2x – 4y = 5 Dividing both sides by  …… (2)

From equations (1) and (2):

45<525

Hence, the line 3x − 4y + 4 = 0 is nearer to the origin.
