Two distinct chords drawn from the point (p,q) on the circle x^{2} + y^{2} = px+qy ; where pq is not 0.. are bisected by the x-axis. Then..... (a) p^{2}= 8q^{2} (b) p^{2}> 8q^{2} (c)p^{2}> 8q^{2} (d) p(mod)= q(mod)

i've tried this question for almost an hour but couldn't get to the answer so please do help!!!

Simplify and solve for 'a' giving a=(3p+(p²-8q²)^(1/2))/4 or (3p -(p²-8q²)^(1/2))/4. For real 'a' with two distinct values, we must have p²>8q²
