Equation of auxilliary and directries circle of the ellipse

The equation of tangent at point (x, y,) and the necessary and sufficient condition of y =

*mx*+ c to be a tangent to the ellipse and the co-ordinates of point t.Properties of the ellipse

The position of a point with respect to the ellipse.

Set of all points in a plane whose distance from a fixed line is said to be directrix of the ellipse and the constant ratio *e (e* 1) is said to be eccentricity of the ellipse.

The fixed point is said to be the focus ...
