Chapter 5: Coordinate Geometry
Here is a general second degree equation in x and y that is used to determine the shape of the outcome graph: Ax2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0.
If B = 0, then the conic section can be determined by the relationship between A and C.
Conic Section - Value of A and C
Parabola - AC = 0, A ¹ C
Circle - A = C
Ellipse - AC > 0, A ¹ C
Hyperbola - AC < 0
