Classify the conic section as a circle, an ellipse, a hyperbola, or a parabola.
25x2=64+16y
ellipse
parabola
circle
hyperbola

Parabola
25 x ^ 2 = 64 + 16 y
25 x ^ 2  64 = 16 y Divide both sides by 16
25 x ^ 2 / 16  64 / 16 = y
y = 25 x ^ 2 / 16  4
Quadratic equation.
A parabola is an equation of the form y = a x ^ 2 + b x + c
