### Changing the side of a triangle without changing area?

$\triangle ABC$ has vertices $A=(8,2)$, $B=(0,6)$ and $C=(-3,2)$. Point $C$ can be moved along a certain line with points $A$ and $B$ remaining stationary so that the area of $ABC$ will not change? ...

### How to calculate a point between two angled lines based on distance from the lines?

Please take a look at the picture below for the diagram reference: I am trying to calculate the point where it is perfectly 3.3 cm vertically from the 44.52 cm line AND 5.5 cm horizontally from the ...

### Show that the co-ordinates of the point on the join of $(-3, 7, -13)$ and $(-6, 1, -10)$ which is nearest to the intersection of the planes

Show that the co-ordinates of the point on the join of $(-3, 7, -13)$ and $(-6, 1, -10)$ which is nearest to the intersection of the planes $3x-y- 3z + 32 =0$ and $3x+2y-15z= 8$ is $(-7,-1,-9)$. ...

### Ring of germs of holomorphic functions at $0\in \mathbb{C}$

So I've been reading the book and they used a induction proof where they just state that for the base case the ring of germs of holomorphic functions on $\mathbb{C}$ is Noetherian. I looked at other ...

### 2D coordinates of rotating a “bent line”?

I have this problem, when I am given a point A an an XY plane, and I need to find the coordinates of a point B that is of a constant distance of my point A, and my OAB angle is fixed (O being the ...

### A question about affine spaces

Are there affine spaces that contain subsets that aren't closed to affine combinations of three points? This is a surprising question. I think that exists that kind of affine spaces,but I don't know ...

### Geometrical interpretation of solving a $3 \times 3$ system of equations

Solve the following system of equations and give a geometrical interpretation of the result. \begin{align*} x + y + z &= 6\\ 2x + y − 3z &= -5\\ 4x − 5y + z &= −3 \end{align*} I know that ...

### Plane $3x + y - z= 4$ touches the ellipsoid $2z^2 = \sqrt7(1 - 2x^2 -y^2)$

Show that the Plane $3x + y - z= 4$ touches the ellipsoid $2z^2 = \sqrt7(1 - 2x^2 -y^2)$ My attempt: First I tried to convert the equation of ellipsoid in general form and then further applying the ...
Question : Show that the cone $$ax^2 + by^2 + cz^2 - cxy - ayz - bzx = 0$$ is the reciprocal of the cone (a^2 - bc)x^2 + (b^2 - ac)y^2 + (c^2 - ab)z^2 - 2(a^2 + bc)yz - 2(b^2 + ac)zx - 2(c^2 + ab)xy ...
