this is a degenerate conic ...
If I have a conic in standard form (converted from 9x^{2 }-4y^{2}-36x-24y=0) of 9(x-2)^{2}-4(y+3)^{2}=0, how would I go about either solving or graphing this. If it were a plus sign between them I'd just give an answer of a point, but I have a strange feeling that there is more to the answer, a solution with an explanation would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, mikewezyk!
