Determine values for A, B, and C such that the equation below represents the

given type of conic. Each axis of the ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola should

be horizontal or vertical. Then rewrite your equation for each conic in standard

form, identify (h, k), and describe the translation. Part A: Circle, Part B: Ellipse,

Part C: Parabola, Part D: Hyperbola

Ax^2+Bxy+Cy^2+2x-4y-5=0

x^2 + 2x + y^2 - 4y = 5

x^2 + 2x + 1 + y^2 - 4y + 4 = 5+1+4

(x+1)^2 + (y-2)^2 = 10

circle: centre(-1,2) and radius √10

Ellipse : A=1, C=2, B=0

x^2 + 2x + 2(y^2 - 2y ) = 5

x^2 + 2x + 1 + 2(y^2 - 2y + 1) = 5 + 1 + 2

(x+1)^2 + 2(y-1)^2 = 8

divide by 8

(x+1)^2 /8 + (y-1)^2 /4 = 1

Parabola:

let A=1, C=0, B=0

x^2 + 2x - 5 = 4y

4y = x^2 + 2x + 1 - 1 - 5

4y = (x+1)^2 - 6

y = (1/4)(x+1)^2 - 3/2

hyperbola:

let A=1, B=0, C=-1

x^2 + 2x - (y^2 + 2y) = 5

(x^2 + 2x + 1) - (y^2 + 2y + 1) = 5 + 1 - 1

(x+1)^2 - (y+1)^2 = 5

(x+1)^2 /5 - (y+1)^2 /5 = 1

Since you wanted all axes to be either vertical or horizontal, the xy term cannot be there, so in all cases B = 0
