# Find the equation of the tangents drawn from the point $(-1,-2)$ to the hyperbola $2x^2-3y^2=6$

$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;x-y+1=0 \; ; \; 3x+y+7=0 \\(B)\;x+y+1=0 \; ; \; 3x-y-7=0 \\(C)\;x+y-1=0 \; ; \; 3x-y+7=0 \\(D)\;none\;of \;these \end{array}$

A)
Hyperbola is $\large\frac{x^2}{3}-\frac{y^2}{2}$$=1$
$a^2=3$
$b^2=2$
Any tangent is $y=mx+\sqrt {a^2m^2-b^2}$
It passes through $(-1,-2)$
$-2=-m+ \sqrt {3m^2-2}$
$\qquad= (m-2)^2=3m^2-2$
=> $m^2+2m-3=0$
=> $m=1,3$
Tangent are $x-y+1=0$
$3x+y+7=0$
Hence A is the correct answer.
