Chapter 1

The circle \(x^{2}+y^{2}-6 x-6 y+9=0\) is rolled on the \(x\)-axis in the positive direction through one complete revolution. Find the equation of the circle in the new position.

Chapter 1

\(A B\) is a diameter of a circle. \(C D\) is a chord parallel to \(A B\) and $2 C D=A B\(. The tangent at \)B\( meets the line \)A C\( produced at \)E\(. Prove that \)A E=2 A B$.

Chapter 1

Show that the equation of a straight line meeting the circle \(x^{2}+y^{2}=a^{2}\) in two pionts at equal distances ' \(d\) ' from a point \(\left(x_{1}, y_{1}\right)\) on its circumference is $x_{1}+y y_{1}-a^{2}+\frac{d^{2}}{2}=0$

Chapter 1

An isosceles right angled triangle, whose sides are \(1,1, \sqrt{2}\) lies entirely in the first quadrant with the ends of the hypotenuse on the co- ordinate axes. If it slides, prove that the locus of its centroid is $$ (3 x-y)^{2}+(x-3 y)^{2}=\frac{32}{9} $$
