The general form of a second degree equation in two variables, x and y , is given by ax 2 + bxy + cy 2 + dx + ey + f = 0 where a, b, c, d, e and f are constants, and at least one of a, b and c is nonzero. The shapes of the corresponding graph of the quadratic equation depend on the values of these constants. The graph could either be a single point, a line, a pair of lines, parabola, ellipse, circle, hyperbola, or no graph at all. These are called the conic sections.

Parabola
BUSCALC Yvette Fajardo-Lim QUADRATIC EQUATIONS IN TWO VARIABLES
General Form Parabola Ellipse Circle Hyperbola

Denition A parabola is the set of points in a plane that are the same distance from a xed line, called the directrix, and a xed point, called the focus, not on the directrix. The midpoint of the perpendicular segment from the focus to the directrix is called the vertex of the parabola. The line that passes through the vertex and focus is called the axis of symmetry.

The standard form of the equation of the parabola with vertex at the origin and focus on the line x = 0, is given by x 2 = 4py . In the given gure, the focus lies |p| units away from the vertex, where p = 0 . If p > 0, then the graph of the parabola opens upward and if p < 0, the graph of the parabola opens downward.

Parabola
BUSCALC Yvette Fajardo-Lim QUADRATIC EQUATIONS IN TWO VARIABLES

If the axis of symmetry is y = 0, the equation is y 2 = 4px. As shown in the gure, the focus also lies |p| units away from the vertex, where p = 0. The parabola opens to the right if p > 0 while if p < 0, the parabola opens to the left.

Example The graph of x 2 = 8y is shown below. Since p = 2, the parabola opens upward, the focus is at point (0, 2) and the directrix is y = 2 .

Example The graph of y 2 = 16x is shown below. Since p = 4, the parabola opens to the left, the focus is at point (4, 0) and the directrix is x = 4 .

The standard form of the equation of the parabola with vertex at (h, k ), is given by (x h)2 = 4p(y k ) if the focus lies on the axis of symmetry x = h. The focus is at (h, k + p) and the directrix is the line y = k p.

Example Given (x 2)2 = 2(y + 3), the squared variable is x, hence the axis of symmetry is vertical. The vertex of the parabola is at (2, 3) with the axis of symmetry x = 2. Solving for p, 1 we have p = . Since p > 0, the parabola opens upward. 2 1 Locating the point further up from the vertex gives the 2 1 5 and going points further down will focus at 2, 2 2 7 determine the directrix as y = . 2

The standard form of the equation of the parabola with vertex at (h, k ), is given by (y h)2 = 4p(x k ) if the focus lies on the axis of symmetry y = k . The focus is at (h + p, k ) with directrix x = h p.

Example Given y 2 + 6y + 8x = 25, by completing the square, the equation in standard form is (y + 3)2 = 8(x + 2). The squared variable is y , hence the axis of symmetry is horizontal. The vertex of the parabola is at (2, 3) with the axis of symmetry y = 3. Solving for p, we have p = 2 which locates the focus 2 points to the left of the vertex at point (4, 3). Since p < 0, the parabola opens to the left. Counting 2 points to the right of the vertex, we obtain the equation of the directrix as x = 0.

General Form Parabola Ellipse Circle Hyperbola

Denition An ellipse is the set of all points in a plane such that the sum the distances from any point on the ellipse to two other xed points, the foci (plural of focus), is a positive constant. The midpoint of the segment between the foci is called the center of the ellipse. The line through the foci determines two points of the ellipse called the vertices of the ellipse. The segment from the vertices is called the major axis of the ellipse and the segment perpendicular to the major axis and incident with the ellipse is called the minor axis of the ellipse.

Example x2 y2 + = 1, we have a2 = 9 and b2 = 4. The larger 4 9 denominator is with the y variable. Hence, the major axis lies along the y -axis. The vertices are at points (0, 3) and (0, 3) and the endpoints of the minor axis are at points (2, 0) and (2, 0). The length of the major axis and the length of the minor axis are 2a = 6 and 2b = 4, respectively. The value of c is obtained as c = 5 ; the foci are at points (0, 5) and (0, 5). Given

Example x2 y2 + =1 25 4 obtained by dividing both sides of the equation by 100. We have a2 = 25 and b2 = 4. The larger denominator is with the x variable. Hence, the major axis lies along the x-axis. The vertices are at points (5, 0) and (5, 0) and the endpoints of the minor axis are at points (0, 2) and (0, 2). The length of the major axis and the length of the minor axis are 2a = 10 and = 4, respectively. The value of c is obtained as 2b c = 21 ; the foci are at points ( 21, 0) and ( 21, 0).

Example Given 16x 2 + 25y 2 + 32x 150y = 159, by completing the square, the equation in standard form is (x + 1)2 (y 3)2 + = 1. The center of the ellipse is at 25 16 (1, 3) . The larger denominator involves the x variable which implies that the major axis is parallel to the x-axis. We have a = 5 and b = 4. Hence, we can obtain the following: vertices: (4, 3) and (6, 3) endpoints of the minor axis: (1, 7) and (1, 1) foci: (2, 3) and (4, 3)

Example (x 1)2 (y + 2)2 + = 1, the ellipse is centered at 25 36 (1, 2). Since the larger denominator involves the y variable, the major axis is parallel to the y -axis, a = 6 and b = 5. Moreover, we know that the major axis has length 12 and the vertices occur at points which are 6 units in either direction from the center. This implies that the vertices are at points (1, 4) and (1, 8). The minor axis is of length 10 which places the endpoints of the minor axis at points (6, 2) and (4, 2). Solving c we obtain c = 11 and for the foci are at points (1, 2 + 11) and (1, 2 11). Given

General Form Parabola Ellipse Circle Hyperbola

Denition A hyperbola is the set of all points in a plane such that the difference of the distances between these points and two xed points is a constant. The two xed points are the foci of the hyperbola, and the midpoint of the segment joining the foci is the center of the hyperbola.

Each hyperbola consists of two branches. The line which contains the two foci intersects the hyperbola at two points, called the vertices. The line segment which ends at these vertices is called the transverse axis. The conjugate axis passes through the center of the hyperbola and is perpendicular to the transverse axis.

The standard form of the equation of a hyperbola with center at the origin has the following equation x2 y2 =1 a2 b 2 if the transverse axis is along the x-axis. The points (a, 0) and (a, 0) are the vertices with (c, 0) and (c, 0) as its foci. In the hyperbola, c 2 = a2 + b2 .

As points on a hyperbola get farther from its center, they get closer and closer to two lines called asymptote lines. The asymptote lines are used as guidelines in sketching the graph of a hyperbola. To graph the asymptote lines, form a rectangle by using the points (a, b), (a, b), (a, b), and (a, b) as the corners and draw its diagonals as extended lines.
