Problem above, from what I understand you are to find the vertical distance to an edge that is 6 feet from a vertex.
I'm trying to triangulate from the focus distances to the point to create an equation I can equate.
Using distance from the focus(c=
Setting the center at the origin, the distance from 2 foci =
Therefore the point 6 feet from the vertex, which is 19 ft from the origin, and is 39.71ft from the last focus, is equated by:
This is where my approach halts, is my approach wrong? Or is there something I am just not seeing?
Edit answer is ~9.1
