prove that 2a=b+c, Mathematics

If the roots of the equation (a-b)x2 + (b-c) x+ (c - a)= 0 are equal. Prove that 2a=b+c.

Ans:    (a-b)x2 + (b-c) x+ (c - a) = 0

T.P 2a = b + c

B2 - 4AC = 0

(b-c)2 - [4(a-b) (c - a)] = 0

b2-2bc + c2 - [4(ac-a2 - bc + ab)] = 0

⇒ b2-2bc + c2 - 4ac + 4a2 + 4bc - 4ab = 0

⇒ b2+ 2bc + c2 + 4a2 - 4ac - 4ab= 0

⇒ (b + c - 2a)2 = 0

⇒ b + c  = 2a
