Equation of tangent at
P(a costhita, b sinthita) on ellipse is
(x costhita/a) + ( y sinthita/b) = 1.
i.e. bx costhita + ay sinthita = ab.
CF= ab/sqrt (b^2 cos^2thita + a^2 sin^2thita).
Equation of Normal at 
P(a costhita, b sinthita) on ellipse is
ax/ costhita – by/ sinthita =a^2-b^2.
solving with y=0 we get G= ( (a^2-b^2) costhita /a, 0).
By distance formula, PG = (b/a)sqrt (b^2 cos^2thita + a^2 sin^2thita).
CF  PG = b^ 2
