### Find the latus rectum of the Parabola

Let $y=3x-8$ be the equation of tangent at the point $(7,13)$ lying on a parabola, whose focus is at $(-1,-1)$. Evaluate the length of the latus rectum of the parabola. I got this question in ...

### The lattice points in the real cone of some semigroups are just the integer cone of that semigroup.

I'm trying to solve an exercise in Fulton's book on toric varieties, and have reduced it to the following: Let $M$ be a lattice of rank $n$ with $M \otimes \mathbb{R} = V$, and $S$ be a finitely ...

### Locus of a point on a fixed-length segment whose endpoints slide along orthogonal lines

Suppose we have some segment $AB$ of constant length that slides in such a way that its endpoints are moving along orthogonal lines. Let $P$ be a point in the segment so that $|AP| = a$ and \$|PB| = ...

### Splitting equilateral triangle into 5 equal parts

Is it possible to divide an equilateral triangle into 5 equal (i.e., obtainable from each other by a rigid motion) parts?
So if i have $$\vec{u} = \Omega r \vec{e_{\theta}}$$ Now if i take the curl $$\omega = 2\Omega\vec{e_z}$$ This is what we expect, we have a "rotating flow". Who's curl would be pointing in the z ...
