    it just said in the question that p>0 so i know that q=-2
    I forgot about that. But even without that information you should still be able to decide.

    so the other angle with the positive x-axis would be something like 3pi/4 ?

    So this Newton-Raphson numerical method in solving an equation where f(x)=0 where can i not use it?

    What do you mean, where you can't use it?
    You can use it on any equation if you've got an interval or know an approximation.

    The method can fail sometimes. See 'failure analysis' on Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton%27s_method

    Every method fails . All of the 3 numerical methods are unreliable but some are more than others.
    I'm just happy that they're worth so many marks in the exam apparently and the questions aren't as hard as they are in the textbook, or I should say long lol.

    a) The gradient of the normal is equal to the opposite of the inverse of the gradient of the tangent.
    m_t \cdot m_n = -1
    You have to find the derivative of the hyperbola to find the equation of the normal at P, with the vertex formula of a line (at (x_1, y_1)):
    y-y_1=m(x-x_1)

    b) We recall the formula for the normal at P, and have it intersect with y=x. We solve for x to find the coordinates of G.
    Full demo:

    From there, it's a matter of finding the distance between P and G and square it.
    d^2=\sqrt { (x_2 - x_1)^2 + (y_2 - y_1)^2 }^2

    I've done part a already and got it correct. It's part b I need help on. Can you reattach the images for part b, they don't work.

    In this video he uses implicit diff which i don't know how to do so i just square rooted both sides and used c1 diff from there to get tangents and normals but the implicit diff method gives the tangent and normal on the point (9,-12) so do i need to include all the tangents and normals?
