Change of Axes
Transformation of coordinates:
The process of changing the coordinates of point or the equation of the curves is called transformation of
coordinates.
Transformation of coordinates is of three types such as follows
1. Translation of axes:
In this process the position of the origin is changed but the direction of coordinate axes is being parallel to
the old system.
Y
Y
When origin (0,0) shifted to the new point (ℎ, 𝑘) and keeping
the direction of coordinate axes fixed then the pair of equations
represents the relation between new system(𝑋 ′ , 𝑌 ′ ) and old
system (𝑋, 𝑌) and is called the translation of axes.

2. Rotation of axes :
In this process the position of the origin is not changed but the direction of coordinate axes is being changed
through a fixed angle with the x-axis.
When the position of the origin is not changed and the
direction of coordinate axes is being changed through a fixed
angle with the X-axis then then this is called rotation of axes
and the relation between new (𝑋 ′ , 𝑌 ′ ) system and old system
(𝑋, 𝑌) are given below.

Equation &amp; its Geometry
◙
Equation in 2 variables:

1st degree General equation:
It always represents a straight line in plane, provided at least a
0 or, b
0
 Homogeneous equation:
An equation in which degree of each term in it is equal is called Homogeneous equation. Such as
ax2  2hxy  by 2  0 is a homogeneous equation of degree or order 2 because degree of its each term is two.
It is noted that homogeneous equation always represents straight lines passing through the origin.


2nd degree homogenous equation:
----------------(*)
In plane, it always represents two straight lines passing through the origin (0, 0).
 Lines be perpendicular if
 Lines be parallel/coincident if
Since two lines passes through the point
, so lines must be coincident.
 Lines be real and different if
.
 Lines be imaginary if
. But passes through the point
.
 Non-homogeneous equation:
An equation in which degree of each term in it is not equal is called Non-homogeneous equation. Such as
ax2  2hxy  by 2  2 gx  2 fy  c  0 is a non- homogeneous equation of degree or order 2.

2nd degree General equation :
------------------(**)
Descartes found that the graphs of second-degree equations in two variables in plane always fall into one of
seven categories:  single point,  pair of straight lines,  circle,  parabola,  ellipse,  hyperbola,
and  no graph at all.

Note:

, represents pair of straight lines if
(1) Two parallel lines if ∆ 0, ℎ
(2) Two perpendicular lines if ∆
b

b

 Otherwise, (**) will represent:
1. A circle if 𝑎 𝑏, ℎ 0
2. A parabola if ∆ 0, ℎ

3. An ellipse if ∆ 0, ℎ
b&lt;0
4. A hyperbola if ∆ 0, ℎ
b&gt;0
5. A rectangular hyperbola if 𝑎 𝑏 0, ℎ
𝑎𝑏 &gt; 0, ∆
0
If none of the above conditions are satisfied then (**) represents  or .
Also,
 if c = 0 , then (**) always passes through the origin(0,0).
 term containing xy can be transformed by a suitably chosen rotation into a form which does not
contain xy term. The standard equation is easily obtained.
 the rotation angle ‘  ’ that will eliminate the ‘xy’ term is given by

Angle ‘Ө’ between 2 (real) straight lines represented by (*) or (**):
We know that 2 straight lines always cut at an angle (real or imaginary). If ‘Ө’ be that angle, we have to use
following formula to find ‘Ө’.
√ℎ
Case 1 : If 𝒉𝟐 &lt; 𝒂𝒃, then angle ‘Ө’ is imaginary and we can’t view it.
Case 2 : When 𝒉𝟐 ≮ 𝒂𝒃, then angle ‘Ө’ is not imaginary.
Some condition for angle ‘Ө’:

If
If
If
If
Ө = 00 , we say, the straight lines are either parallel or, coincident (i.e. same ).
a + b = 0, then Ө = 900 , and we say, the straight lines are perpendicular.
Ө is +ve, we accept it &amp; say that the angle is acute.
Ө is -ve, we add 1800 , and then get an obtuse angle.
Separation of equation of each line from (*) or (**):
To determine the equation of each line separately, we need to solve (*) or (**).i.e. we write the equation as
Ax2 + B x + C = 0 &amp; then solve it.

Separation of lines:Given equation is,
12 x 2  7 xy  10 y 2  13x  45 y  35  0
 12 x 2  (7 y  13) x  (10 y 2  45 y  35)  0
 (7 y  13)  (7 y  13) 2  4  (10 y 2  45 y  35)  12
 x

 24 x  (7 y  13)  (23 y  43) 2
 24 x  7 y  13  (23 y  43)
12
Taking positive,
Taking negative,
24 x  7 y  13  (23 y  43)
 3x  2 y  7  0
Hence, 3x  2 y  7  0 and 4 x  5 y  5  0 are the required equations of two straight lines represented by
12 x 2  7 xy  10 y 2  13x  45 y  35  0 .

(i)
Comparing this above equation with the standard equation ax2  2hxy  by 2  2 gx  2 fy  c  0 we get
a  1 , h  1, b  1, g  1, f  0 &amp; c  1
