### IIT JEE 2006: New Issue

It appears that 60% restriction is applicable to the students who will be appearing for 12'th board in 2006 but is not applicable to the students who have appeared for 12'th board earlier. To me it does not appear to be fair. The 60% restriction should be removed for everybody for JEE 2006.

### A man starts walking from the point P (-3, 4) ....

A man starts walking from the point P (-3, 4), touches the x-axis at R, and then turns to reach at the point Q (0, 2). The man is walking at a constant speed. If the man reaches the point Q in the minimum time, then $50 [(PR)^2 + (RQ)^2 ]$ is equal to _ _ _ _ . Solution For time to be minimum at constant speed, the directions must be symmetric. In other words, the angles made by PR and RQ with the vertical must be the same just like in the law of reflection in optics. $tan \theta = \frac {MP}{MR} = \frac {NQ}{NR}$ $\Rightarrow \frac {3-r}{4} = \frac {r}{2}$ $\Rightarrow r=1$ So, $R \equiv ( - 1,0)$ Now, $50(PR^2+RQ^2)=50[(4+16)+(1+4)]=1250$
