`        Three normals are drawn from point (7,14) to the parabola x^2 -8x -16y=0. Fine the coordinates of the feet of the normals.`
2 years ago

```							 Given curve is y2 - 16x – 8y = 0                       ….… (1)Let P = (14, 7)Then equation (1) can be written as y2 – 8y = 16xor y2 – 8y + 16 = 16x + 16Or (y – 4)2 = 16(x + 1)                                ….….…. (2)This is of the form (y –l)2 = 4a(x-s), where a = 4, s = -1, l = 4.Let (-1+4t2, 4+8t) be any point on the curve (2).Then from (2) , we have 2(y-4) dy/dx = 16.Hence, dy/dx = 8/(y-4)at (4t2 – 1, 4 + 8t), dy/dx = 1/tHence, the equation of normal at (-1 + 4t2, 4+8t) isy - 4 – 8t = – t(x + 1 – 4t2)or tx + y – 4 – 8t + t – 4t3 = 0 ….….. (3)If line passes through the point P(14, 7) then14t + 7 – 4t3 – 7t – 4 = 0or 4t3 – 7t -3 = 0(t + 1)(4t2 – 4t – 3) = 0Hence, t = -1, (4 ± 8)/8 = -1, 3/2 , -1/2.when t = -1, foot of the normal is (3, -4)when t = 3/2, foot of the normal is (8, 16)when t = -1/2, foot of the normal is (0, 0).

```							The point is (7,14) not (14,7). Thanks though! I need to fill in a hundred characters a I`m writing this sentence. Can you just tell me what will be changed when we take the point as mentioned in the question?
