well... the traverse axis means, the line from vertex to vertex thus |dw:1435709894711:dw|

if we were to slide the point intersecting "a" and "b", over the curve, it'd end up; like |dw:1435710165798:dw|

so in the end the line would end up as |dw:1435710275849:dw|

this is very helpful thanks

  • jdoe0001
thus we could say that

|dw:1435710410356:dw| so... what do you think is the traverse axis, or "that line"?

thus a-b = traverse axis
lulubj
  • lulubj
so it would be B?

its a-b

once we slide the dot down the curve to the horizontal line "a" length is from the left focus over to the curve and "b" length is from the curve, to the right focus the distance from the focus to the curve is "b" if you subtract "b" amount from "a" all that's left is from curve to curve, or the traverse line :)
