IIT-JEE 2000

Subjective
For points $$P\,\,\, = \left( {{x_1},\,{y_1}} \right)$$ and $$Q\,\,\, = \left( {{x_2},\,{y_2}} \right)$$ of the co-ordinate plane, a new distance $$d\left( {P,\,Q} \right)$$ is defined by $$d\left( {P,\,Q} \right)$$$$ = \left( {{x_2},\,{y_2}} \right)\left| {{x_1} - {x_2}} \right| + \left| {{y_1} - {y_2}} \right|.$$ Let $$O = (0, 0)$$ and $$A = (3, 2)$$. Prove that the set of points in the first quadrant which are equidistant (with respect to the new distance) from $$O$$ and $$A$$ consists of the union of a line segment of finite length and an infinite ray. Sketch this set in a labelled diagram.

IIT-JEE 1996

Subjective
A rectangle $$PQRS$$ has its side $$PQ$$ parallel to the line $$y = mx$$ and vertices $$P, Q$$ and $$S$$ on the lines $$y = a, x = b$$ and $$x = -b,$$ respectively. Find the locus of the vertex $$R$$.

Answer

$$x\left( {{m^2} - 1} \right) - ym + \left( {{m^2} + 1} \right)b + am = 0$$

IIT-JEE 1993

Subjective
Tagent at a point $${P_1}$$ {other than $$(0, 0)$$} on the curve $$y = {x^3}$$ meets the curve again at $${P_2}$$. The tangent at $${P_2}$$ meets the curve at $${P_3}$$, and so on. Show that the abscissae of $${P_1},\,{P_2},{P_3}......{P_n},$$ form a G.P. Also find the ratio.
