# If the Equation of a Circle is λX2 + (2λ − 3) Y2 − 4x + 6y − 1 = 0, Then the Coordinates of Centre Are - Mathematics

MCQ

If the equation of a circle is λx2 + (2λ − 3) y2 − 4x + 6y − 1 = 0, then the coordinates of centre are

#### Options

• (4/3, −1)

• (2/3, −1)

• (−2/3, 1)

• (2/3, 1)

#### Solution

(2/3, −1)

To find the centre:
Coefficient of x2 = Coefficient of y2

$\therefore \lambda = 2\lambda - 3 \Rightarrow \lambda = 3$

Therefore, the given equation can be rewritten as

$3 x^2 + 3 y^2 - 4x + 6y - 1 = 0$.
$\therefore x^2 + y^2 - \frac{4}{3}x + 2y - \frac{1}{3} = 0$
Thus, the coordinates of the centre is $\left( \frac{2}{3}, - 1 \right)$ .
