# Find the separate equations of the lines represented by the equation 3x^2-10xy-8y^2=0 - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Find the separate equations of the lines represented by the equation  3"x"^2-10"xy"-8"y"^2=0

#### Solution

Given pairs of lines 3"x"^2-10"xy"-8"y"^2=0

3"x"^2-12"xy"+2"xy"-8"y"^2=0

3"x"("x"-4"y")+2"y"("x"-4"y")=0

("x"-4"y")(3"x"+2"y")=0

Separated equations

3"x"+2"y"=0   and  "x"-4"y"=0

Concept: Equation of a Line in Space
