hi guys,
I have the following problem:
The point P lies on the ellipse
and N is the foot of the perpendicular from P to the line x = 2 (see attachment). Find the equation of the mid point of PN as P moves on the ellipse.
My answer does not agree with the one in my maths book, so I would just like to confirm whether the book is correct or not. Secondly, I have solved this problem using the parametric form of the point
and as far as I can see, it is the only way to solve this problem -
<<<<<< that is correct but the parametric equation of an ellipse is: .
