# If sum of perpendicular distances of a variable point P(x, y) from the lines x + y – 5 = 0 and 3x – 2y + 7 = 0 is always 10. Show that P must move on a line.

Given:

Sum of perpendicular distances of a variable point P(x, y) from the lines x + y – 5 = 0 and 3x – 2y + 7 = 0 is always 10

To prove:

P must move on a line.

Concept Used:

Distance of a point from a line.

Explanation:

It is given that the sum of perpendicular distances of a variable point P (x, y) from the lines x + y 5 = 0 and 3x 2y + 7 = 0 is always 10   It is a straight line.

Hence proved.
