II. What You Need to Know
In this lesson, we will discuss on how
to recognize the equatio In this
lesson, we will discuss on how to
recognize the equation and also
know the important characteristics of
the different types of conic section.
DISCUSSION:
A. Recognizing the Equation
The equation of a circle is written in a standard form
Ax2 + Ay2 – Cx + Dy +E = 0,
That is, the coefficients of x2 and y2 are the same. However, it does not follow
that if the coefficients of x2 and y2 are the same, the graph is a circle.

B.
x2 + y2 – 6x + 8y + 50 = 0
(x - 3)2 + (y - 4)2 = -25
empty set
For a circle with equation (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2, we have r2 &gt; 0. This is not
the case for the standard equations of (A) and (B).

In (A), because the sum of two squares can only be 0 if and only if each
1
3
square is 0, it follows that x− 2= 0 and y + 2 = 0. The graph is thus the single point

(2, −2).
In (B), no real values of x and y can make the nonnegative left side equal
to the negative right side. The graph is then the empty set.

B. Important characteristics of conic section
Let us recall the general form of the equations of the other conic sections.
We may write the equations of conic sections we discussed in the general form
Ax2 + By2 + Cx + Dy + E = 0.
Some terms may vanish, depending on the kind of conic section.
(1) Circle: both x2 and y2 appear, and their coeﬃcients are the same
Ax2 + Ay2 + Cx + Dy + E = 0
5
Example: 18x2 + 18y2 −24x + 48y−5 = 0 Degenerate cases: a point, and the
empty set
(2) Parabola: exactly one of x2 or y2 appears
Ax2 + Cx + Dy + E = 0 (D 6= 0, opens upward or downward)
By2 + Cx + Dy + E = 0 (C 6= 0, opens to the right or left)
Examples:
3x2 −12x + 2y + 26 = 0 (opens downward)
−2y2 + 3x + 12y−15 = 0 (opens to the right)
(3) Ellipse: both x2 and y2 appear, and their coeﬃcients A and B have the same
sign and are unequal
Examples:
2x2 + 5y2 + 8x−10y−7 = 0 (horizontal major axis)
4x2 + y2 −16x−6y + 21 = 0 (vertical major axis)
If A = B, we will classify the conic as a circle, instead of an ellipse.
Degenerate cases: a point, and the empty set
(4) Hyperbola: both x2 and y2 appear, and their coeﬃcients A and B have
different signs
Examples:
5x2 −3y2 −20x−18y−22 = 0 (horizontal transverse axis)
−4x2 + y2 + 24x + 4y−36 = 0 (vertical transverse axis)
Degenerate case: two intersecting lines
(4) Hyperbola: both x2 and y2 appear, and their coeﬃcients A and B have
different signs
Examples:
5x2 −3y2 −20x−18y−22 = 0 (horizontal transverse axis)
−4x2 + y2 + 24x + 4y−36 = 0 (vertical transverse axis)
Degenerate case: two intersecting lines
The following examples will show the possible degenerate conic (a point,
two intersecting lines, or the empty set) as the graph of an equation following a
similar pattern as the non-degenerate cases.

(1) 4x2 + 9y2 −16x + 18y + 25 = 0

A Note on Identifying a Conic Section by Its General Equation
It is only after transforming a given general equation to standard
form that we can identify its graph either as one of the degenerate
conic sections (a point, two intersecting lines, or the empty set) or
as one of the non-degenerate conic sections (circle, parabola,
ellipse, or hyperbola).
1. Parabola
The parabola is a conic section, the intersection of a right circular conical
surface and a plane parallel to a generating straight line of that surface. The
equation for a parabola is
y=a(x−b)2+c or x =a(y−b)2+c
2. Circles and Ellipses
The equation of a circle with center at (a, b) and radius r units is
(x−a) 2 + (y−b) 2 = r2
An ellipse is the figure consisting of all points in the plane whose coordinates
satisfy the equation

3. Hyperbolas
A hyperbola is a curve, specifically a smooth curve that lies in a plane,
which can be defined either by its geometric properties or by the kinds of
equations for which it is the solution set. A hyperbola has two pieces, called
connected components or branches, which are mirror images of each other and
resembling two infinite bows.
The equation of a hyperbola with a center at (m, n) is
(x−m)2/a2 − (y−n)2/b2 = 1
