The curve
C
is defined parametrically by
sec

and
tan
ya
, where
a
is a fixed
constant.
It is known that the point
P
with coordinates
( sec , tan )
aa
lies on
C
.
Show that the equation of the tangent at
P
is given by
sin
cos
x
y
a
and the
equation normal at
P
is given by
sin

.
The tangent and the normal at
P
cut the
x
axis at
T
and
N
respectively.
