Convert each general equation to standard form.

144X^2-25Y^2+864X-100Y-2404=0

Y^2-4X^2-12Y-16X+16=0

I will do the hard one, you do the easy one

144x^2 + 864x + .... - (25y^2 + 100y + ...) =2404

144(x^2 + 6x + ....) - 25(y^2 + 4y + ...) = 2404

144(x^2 + 6x + **9**) - 25(y^2 + 4y + **4**) = 2404 + **1296** - **100**

144(x+3)2 - 25(y+2)^2 = 3600

divide each term by 3600

(x+3)^2 /25 - (y+2)^2 /144 = 1

do the 2nd one the same way
