Question

# If the line is a tangent to the parabola then k=

- 1
- 2
- 3
- 4

Hint:

### The parabola equation is simplest if the vertex is at the origin and the axis of symmetry is along the x-axis and y-axis.

In parabola a line to be a tangent to parabola, condition is

## The correct answer is: 1

### Given Parabola :

Comparing with standard equation of parabola

4ay = 4y

a = 1

Given line :

Comparing with standard equation of line

m = 1 and c = k

In parabola a line to be a tangent to parabola, condition is

Substituting these values

Thus, If the line is a tangent to the parabola then k= 1

### In how many ways can six different rings be wear in four fingers?

It is important to note that we have used a basic fundamental principle of counting to find the total ways. Also, it is important to notice that each ring has 4 ways as it has not been given that each finger must have at least one ring. So, there can be 6 rings in a finger alone and remaining all the fingers empty.

Whenever we face such types of problems the key point is to make special arrangements for the people who are in need of it, then arrange the remaining. Now combination comes with permutation as there are possibilities of these 8 people sitting on one side to rearrange. Thus this concept into consideration, to get through the answer.
