the formula of the hyperbole is x^2 -3*y^2=3.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

find a dot on the hyperbole that the sum of the distances

between the dot and the focus points equals to 6

i devided all the formula by 3 in order to find a^2 ,b^2

i found the focus point by the formula c^2=a^2 +b^2

the problem is the the definision of the hyperbole

is that the subtraction of distances from every point to

the focus point equals to 2a

there is no law about the sum of the distances?

only the law i mentioned before deals with them

the answer in the book (+-3:+-2)

plz help
