In terms of how to solve the other parts, we know that l1 is perpendicular to l2, so we can work out that gradient so we can form an equation for y with unknown c. Equally, we know that l2 just touches the circle, so there is just one solution if we sub in our equation for y into the equation of the circle. By using the discriminant, you can work out possible values of c and thus the value of c needed.

For (e), we have to work out the coordinates of E and P, which part (d) will help you with. Then calculate the area of the triangle.

Can i have some help with this problem please:
The jokes in the Christmas crackers sold by a well known supermarket are written by 3 comedians: Andrew, Beryl and Charlie. Beryl is the most proliﬁc writer, writing 55% of the jokes, with Andrew and Charlie writing 30% and 15% respectively. 98% of Andrew’s jokes are puns and 95% of Beryl’s jokes are puns, whilst only 90% of Charlie’s jokes are puns. Suppose you pull a cracker and ﬁnd that the joke inside is not a pun. (i) What is the probability that Andrew wrote the joke? (ii) What is the probability that Beryl wrote the joke? (iii) What is the probability that Charlie wrote the joke?
