clasifying conics 4xsquared=64-64ysquared 4x^2 = 64 - 64y^2 4x^2 + 64y^2 = 64 .......divide each term by 64 (x^2)/16 + y^2 = 1 you should recognize the standard form of the equation of an ellipse.

The graph of y=x^2 is reflected in the x-axis, then stretched vertically by a factor of 2, and then translated 3 units to the left and 1 unit down. I need to write the equation of this parabola in standard and general form. I have 4 other questions so could someone please show...

Algebra 2 -Conics
The directions are : Write each equation in standard form (if needed), then find appropriate information for the particular conic. the question: y=2x^2-12x+19 HOW DO I BEGIN??? Complete the square and rewrite as y = 2x^2-12x + 19 = 2(x^2 - 6x + 9)+ 19 - 18 = 2(x-3)^2 + 1 This ...

math 30 conics
Hi i was given the equation (y-2)^2 - x^2/4 =1. I need to find the center, vertices and asymptotes of this hyperbola. I found the center (0,2) and the vertices were tricky but I think they are (0,1) (0,3) but I'm having trouble finding the asymptotes. Can you please help me ...

umm suppose a parabola has a vertex at (0,2) and points (1,1) how would I derive the equation and focus, i've been trying to understand this for so long, I can't get it. Does this parabola have the equation (y-2)^2 = x and a focus of 1/4?? Is that correct?? I searched Google ...
