Q:

The parametric equations of a curve are x = a cos^3 (n) , y = a sin^3 (n), where a is a positive constant and 0 < n < (pi/2). The tangent to the curve at the point with parameter n cuts the x - and y - axes at S and T respectively. Find the equation of this tangent, and show that the distance ST is independent of n.

Thank you for helping!
