I've not specified a type sig, so it figures out some particular subdomain of numeric 
types.  Whatever that is, it takes two numbers and returns a tuple of three floating-point 

pappus r n = (x-0.5,y,rn)
     blah= n**2*(1-r)**2+r
     x = (r*(1+r)) / (2*blah)
     y = (n*r*(1-r)) / blah
     rn = ((1-r)*r)/(2*blah)
