Conic sections are the cross sections of a double cone that is sliced by a plane, which includes parabolas, ellipses, hyperbolas, and circles. In this lesson, youll learn how to put an equation in standard form by completing the square, be able to identify which conic section is the graph of the equation and learn how to analyze a general equation of degree 2 to determine which conic section is the graph of the equation. In the examples, you'll work on identifying various conic sections.
*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
