## Key concepts

• Four basic shapes can result from the intersection of a plane with a pair of right circular cones connected tail to tail. They include an ellipse, a circle, a hyperbola, and a parabola.
• A nondegenerate conic section has the general form $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}A{x}^{2}+Bxy+C{y}^{2}+Dx+Ey+F=0\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ where $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}A,B\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}C\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ are not all zero. The values of $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}A,B,$ and $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}C\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ determine the type of conic. See [link] .
• Equations of conic sections with an $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}xy\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ term have been rotated about the origin. See [link] .
• The general form can be transformed into an equation in the $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{x}^{\prime }\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{y}^{\prime }\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ coordinate system without the $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{x}^{\prime }{y}^{\prime }\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ term. See [link] and [link] .
• An expression is described as invariant if it remains unchanged after rotating. Because the discriminant is invariant, observing it enables us to identify the conic section. See [link] .

## Verbal

What effect does the $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}xy\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ term have on the graph of a conic section?

The $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}xy\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ term causes a rotation of the graph to occur.

If the equation of a conic section is written in the form $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}A{x}^{2}+B{y}^{2}+Cx+Dy+E=0\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}AB=0,$ what can we conclude?

If the equation of a conic section is written in the form $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}A{x}^{2}+Bxy+C{y}^{2}+Dx+Ey+F=0,$ and $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{B}^{2}-4AC>0,$ what can we conclude?

The conic section is a hyperbola.

Given the equation $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}a{x}^{2}+4x+3{y}^{2}-12=0,$ what can we conclude if $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}a>0?$

For the equation $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}A{x}^{2}+Bxy+C{y}^{2}+Dx+Ey+F=0,$ the value of $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\theta \text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ that satisfies $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cot}\left(2\theta \right)=\frac{A-C}{B}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ gives us what information?

It gives the angle of rotation of the axes in order to eliminate the $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}xy\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ term.

A laser rangefinder is locked on a comet approaching Earth. The distance g(x), in kilometers, of the comet after x days, for x in the interval 0 to 30 days, is given by g(x)=250,000csc(π30x). Graph g(x) on the interval [0, 35]. Evaluate g(5)  and interpret the information. What is the minimum distance between the comet and Earth? When does this occur? To which constant in the equation does this correspond? Find and discuss the meaning of any vertical asymptotes.
