Find an equation of the line that bisects the obtuse angles formed by the lines with equations 3xy=1 and x+y=2.
a. (3√2 +√10)x(√10 + √2)y2√10+√2=0
b. (3√2  √10)x+(√10  √2)y+2√10+√2=0
c. (3√2 + √10)x+(√10  √2)y+2√10  √2=0
d. (3√2 + √10)x(√10 + √2)y2√10√2=0
i'm not sure on this one!

before I answer this question, I have to establish if you know
1. that slope = tan(angle the line makes with the xaxis)
2. if m1 and m2 are the slopes of 2 nonparallel lines, and theta is the acute angle between them, then
tan(theta) = │(m1  m2)/(1 + m1m2)│
If not please watch this short video.

3. tan(2A) = 2tanA/(1tan^2 A)
I also noticed that in the first answer given, the slope of the line is
(3√2+√10)/(√10+√2) which when rationalized is (1+√5)/2 which is the answer that I got for the required line.
So you might have obtained the correct slope of the new line without realizing it.
Let me know if you need more help.posted by Reiny
