I really need help with this so if anyone could please help me, that'd be awsome. . . here's the problem.
Indicate which type of conic each of the following represents.
1. (x-3)^2/9 + (y-2)^2/4 =1
2.(x+2)^2/25 - (y-1)^2/9 =1
See Conic section - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When looking at it your equations disregard (for purposes of identification) the offsets on x and y. For example, whatever (x-3)^2/9 + (y-2)^2/4 =1 is, is just a shifted version of x^2/9 + y^2/4 =1 (shifted 3 to the right and 2 up).
