3D1 41334 4. A comet's path can be modeled by one branch of the hyperbola 1096 where the sun is at the focus of that part of the hyperbola. Each unit of the coordinate system is 1 million miles. find the coordinates of the sun (assuming it is at the focus with non-negative coordinates). Round to the nearest hundredth. How close does the comet come to the sun?
