hello everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i'm having can't seem to solve these two questions....

1) Find the equation of the tangent of the parabola y^2= 4px, perpendicular to the lines 4Y- X + 3=0, and find the point of contact?

2) Find the equation of the tangent to the parabola Y^2= 10x, at the extremities of the lactus rectum. On what line do these tangents intersect?

If there is anyone out there who knows the answer...could u please explain or direct me to a suitable site which may explain the concepts.

Thanks callas
