Download Geometry Expressions File

Tangents are drawn from the hyperbola (x/a)^2-(y/b)^2=1 (shown in red). At the points where the tangents intersect the X and Y axes, lines are drawn perpendicular to the respective axis (parallel to the other axis). The Bullet nose (shown in blue) is the locus of the points where these perpendiculars intersect.
