Q. 23

# <span lang="EN-US

The direction ratios of a line, if the cartesian equation of the line is given , is a,b,c.

Hence, the direction ratios of line L:  and the direction ratios of line M:  two lines with direction ratios, a1, a2, a3 and b1, b2, b3, are perpendicular if and only if a1b1+a2b2+a3b3=0

Hence, Solving this equation, we get Hence, the equation of lines are:  Any general point on line will be and on the line will be .

For the lines to intersect, . Solving the equations for x and y-coordinates, we get and m=1.

Equating equations for z-coordinates, we get

3k+3 = 5m+6

Substituting and m=1, we get or 15=22 which is not true.

Hence, the lines do not intersect in real space.
