Question: exercises the equation of the cissoid is derivable as follows...

Question details

ExerciseS The equation of the cissoid is derivable as follows. 2.5.1 Using X and Y for the horizontal and vertical coordinates, show that the straight line RP in Figure 2.10 has equation Y = (X-1).The Cissoid of Diocles (around 100 bcE) This curve is defined using an auxiliary circle, which for convenience we take to be the unit circle, and vertical lines through x and-x. It is the set of all points P seen in Figure 2.10 Figure 2.10: Construction of the cissoid The portion shown results from varying x between 0 and 1. It is a cubio curve with cartesian equation y1 +x)(1-x)3.
