Hello, I am stuck at these two questions of locus from the topic of straight lines. Q1)A right angled triangle ABC having a right angle at C, CA = b and CB = a, move such that the angular points A and B slide along x axis and y axis respectively. Find locus of C. Q2)A variable line L passing through the point B(2,5) intersects the lines 2x² 5xy + 2y² = 0 at P and Q. Find the locus of the point R on L such that distances BP, BR and BQ are in harmonic progression.

Q1) I don't understand the description. If A and B move as described arbitrarily, C can be anywhere not on the axes (or C can be where the axes intersect).
