Parabola y^{2}=12x

hyperbola  8x^{2}-y^{2}=8

\frac{x^{2}}{1}-\frac{y^{2}}{8}=1

Equation of tangents

y^{2}=12x\Rightarrow y=2x+\frac{3}{m}

\frac{x^{2}}{1}-\frac{y^{^{2}}}{8}=1\: \Rightarrow y=mx\pm \sqrt{m^{2}-8}

Since they are common tangent

\therefore \frac{3}{m}=\pm \sqrt{m^{2}-8}\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \:                                              Eccentricity of hyperbola

\frac{9}{m^{2}}=m^{2}-8\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \:\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: e=\frac{\sqrt{a^{2}+b^{2}}}{a}

m^{4}-8m^{2}-9=0\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \:\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: =\frac{\sqrt{1+8}}{1}

m^{4}-\left ( 9-1 \right )m^{2}-9=0\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \:\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: =3

\left ( m^{2}-9 \right )\left ( m^{2}+1 \right )=0\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \:\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \:

m=\pm 3\: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: \: e=3

\therefore y=3x+1\: \: \: \: \: \: P\left ( -\frac{1}{3},0 \right )

y=-3x-1

S=\left ( 3,0 \right )

S'=\left (- 3,0 \right )

So ratio=\frac{10}{3}\times \frac{3}{8}=\frac{5}{4}
