How would I solve this:
Find a parametric equation for the conic section:
9x^2 - 18x + 6y^2 - 96y + 9 = 0
this is an ellepse
the equation is in the form of
you will need to complete the square to get it to this form
I was a not exactly sure what you meant by parametric equation
this is just a modified equation from standard form to make is easy to recognize the charactoristics.
Welcome to Math Help Forum!which is indeed an ellipse, centre . The parametric form of this is:which works, of course, because .
Here's the first couple of lines showing you how to complete the square:Can you take it from here and find the values of ?
