that AOB =900 then show that P lies on the circle

Sol: Given circle x2+y2=a2... (1)
Let p(x1, y1) be a point and let the chord of
contact of it cut the circle in A and B such that
AOB=900. The equation of the chord of contact

Or 2 x 2 + y 2 1 + 1 2 = 0

Since AOB=900, we have the coefficient of

Let Q (x2 , y2 ) be any point on the locus
