How good are you in Ellipse

Geometry Level 5

From a point on the axis of x common tangent are drawn to the parabola $y^{2} = 4x$ and the ellipse $\frac{x^{2}}{a^{2}} + \frac{y^{2}}{b^{2}} = 1$ $$(a>b>0)$$ . If tangent form an equilateral triangle with their chord of contact with respect to parabola, then set of exhaustive values of a is: $( \frac{p}{q}, r)$ Find $( p + q + r)$
