There are these three quadratic equations:

(x−x1)2+(y−y1)2+P1⋅h2=0 .. (1)

(x−x2)2+(y−y2)2+P2⋅h2=0 .. (2)

(x−x3)2+(y−y3)2+P3⋅h2=0 .. (3)

where we know the values of x1,x2,x3,y1,y2,y3,P1,P2,P3.

How can I find (x,y,h)? Curlyben Posts: 18,474, Reputation: 1857 Admin & Wine Expert #2 Jan 7, 2014, 11:51 PM

Here's a hint to get you started: if you subtract the second equation from the first the x^2 and y^2 terms cancel, leaving a simple equation with unknowns x, y, and h. Do the same with equations 1 and 3 and equations 2 and 3 and you'll get three simultaneous equations in three unknowns, which you can solve the usual way. physic Posts: 42, Reputation: 0 Junior Member #4 Jan 27, 2014, 07:55 PM
