Application of Derivatives
The point on the curve which is nearest to the point (0, 5) is(A) (B) (C) (0, 0) (D) (2, 2)
Solution: Solution: If we see the options, option - do not satisfy the equation of the curve.
So, it is not the answer.
Now, we will calculate the distance of rest of three options from .
For Option - (A),
For Option - (C),
For Option - (D),
As, in case of option - (A) is the minimum, so is the nearest point.
