\[a^2=b^2+c^2 i dont get this ratio .why it holds
i haven't done conics for quite while, but this shouldn't be difficult.|dw:1364055735803:dw|
i mean
what's r there?
its defined in the 1st link
can't find it ... equation no?
what is this 'c' again?
this 'c' looks like foci.
this is pretty ovbioius ... this ratio must be constant
