# How are the points computed in the ElGamal elliptic curve encryption algorithm?

I was looking at an example of the ElGamal encryption operation here (page 24), but I can't seem to understand why: $$\beta = 3(10, 3) = (10, 8)$$

we have $$a=5, b=4, (x_P,y_P) = (10,3) and p = 11$$ Back to the page 22 calculate $$s\equiv (3x_P^2+a)(2y_P)^{-1} \mod p \equiv 5\mod 11$$ calculate in $$\mod p$$: $$2(10,3) = (5^2- 2\cdot 10,-3+5(10-5)) = (5,0)$$ now add (5,0) to (10,3) (use the rule in the page 21) now we have $$s\equiv (3-0)(10-5)^{-1}\mod p \equiv 5\mod p$$ then $$x_\beta \equiv (5^2 - 10 - 5) \equiv 10\mod p$$ and $$y_\beta \equiv -3 + 5 (10 -10) \equiv 11-3 \equiv 8 \mod p$$ Attention to use $$(5,0)$$ instead of $$(10,3)$$ while calculating $$y_\beta$$.
