Please help me to solve this problem.

Find the equation of the locus of a moving point if the sum of the slopes of the line joining it to (1,3) and (4,-2) is 1.

  • Analytic Geometry -

    P(x,y)
    m1 = (y-3)/(x-1)
    m2 = (y+2)/(x-4)
    m1+m2 = 1
    (y-3)/(x-1) + (y+2)/(x-4) = 1

    (y-3)(x-4) + (y+2)(x-1) = (x-4)(x-1)

    xy - 3x -4y+ 12 + xy +2x -y -2 = x^2-5x+4


    x^2 - 4 x -2 xy + 5 y - 6 = 0
