A st line passes thru A(-2,-3) and cuts line x+3y=9 and x+y+1=0 at B and C respectively. Find equation of the line if AB.AC=20

put the points in the given from

B   =  (-2+ r1 cos   ,-3 + r1 sin )

C =  (-2+ r2 cos   ,-3 + r2 sin )

where ::

r1  .  r2          = 20

from the above equation find the value of  where  is the slope of the line

Try origin shift to A(-2,-3) then line passes throguh origin so y= mx form use origin shift on both line as well ;get the equation simplified in m as use AB.AC =20 get the equation ;shift it back after simplification;
