Find in terms of t, the co-ordinates of P

**Steve**, Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 11:41amP has coordinates (x,tx)

The line from (3,0) to P has slope -1/t

now, drop an altitude from P to the x-axis.

tx/(x-3) = -1/t

x = 3/(1+t^2)

P = (3/(1+t^2), 3t/(1+t^2))

**bobpursley**, Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 11:42amline 1: y=tx

line 2: y=-x/t +b

but you know point 3,0 is on line 2

0=-3/t + b or b=3/t

line2: y=-x/t +3/t

line1 y=tx

set them equal

tx=-x/t+3/t solve for x

then solve for y.
