Conic Sections

Topic 7.6

Definitions
• Conic Section: Any figure that can be formed by slicing a double cone with a plane

Parabola

Circle

Ellipse

Hyperbola

Which Conic is it Anyway?
• Parabola: A = 0 OR C = 0
• Circle: A = C
• Ellipse: , but both have the same sign
• Hyperbola: A and C have Different signs
Example: State the type of conic and write it in the standard form of that conic
• Conic: A and C same sign, but A ≠ C
• ELLIPSE
• Standard Form:
Example: State the type of conic and write it in the standard form of that conic
• Conic: A = 0
• PARABOLA
• Standard Form:
Example: State the type of conic and write it in the standard form of that conic
• Conic: A =C
• CIRCLE
• Standard Form:

**Divide all by 2!**
