Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so negative makes it an ellipse.? 6x2 – 3y2 + 5x – 2y – 7 = 0 would be a hyperbola right or no cause it's negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess I just dont get how you tell the difference between a hyperbola and ellipse if they are both negative, like 5x2 – 8y2 + 7x + 3y – 7 = 0 it's not a parabola or circle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when x^2 or y^2; only one of them is negative; its a hyperbola usually
