solution to follow ... hope I have not got my usual typos ...
Zacken you have the time it will take me to write a neat solution to bAeat me !!
Argh, this is such a distraction. I was trying to do FP3. I'll give this a go now! How'd your PDE go by the way?

Okay, go for it. I think I've got it... I used a quadratic solving method though, you won't be happy.

I will give you a clue because I am still; scanning my work

Right angle trigonometry
Loci property of the ellipse
then I made it a bit harder with trig identities

It's the middle bit that I can't quite wrap my head around. Take your time, I can wait.

Aaaaargh! I could have done that, I'm so dumb!

you ought to know this ...

the original problem, with the angle given is 4 lines using this approach.

Yeah, I dooo. I literally just covered it two days ago. I couldn't see a nice way to express the hypotenuse

is a loci property of an ellipse?

Was never taught that

Though to be fair it is quite obvious..
