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


ellipse


parabola

circle

hyperbola

  • math -

    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
