comment perpendicular distance to center of square from line in terms of slope
Wow thank you, I understand now. I never thought of creating a triangle with sides dx and dy which is the first obvious thing to do. Also, forgot about how the ratios are the same when the angles are same.

comment subvolume area under the intersection of a plane (line) and a cone
I am dealing with lines but in math terms they are planes. Sorry I forgot there was a difference in geometry.

comment What's better strategy to handle tons of formulas, definitions?
I find this holds true with anything I have ever tried to master.

Yes by flat I mean a plane. Here is a link with a picture of the cone with the line. vis.uky.edu/~ryang/Teaching/cs535-2010spr/Lectures/…

The line is flat and only intersects at the base. It marks or cuts out the subsection of the cone. The distance from the center of the line to the center of the cone is known.
