Which conic section does the equation attached describe? A. Circle B. Ellipse C. Parabola D. Hyperbola **my answer: A. circle is that right? =)
A Circle has this form,\[\huge x^2+y^2=r^2\] A parabola has this general form,\[\huge y=x^2\] If you ignore all of the extra junk for a moment, which one does it more closely resemble? Notice the square on the y term in the circle equation.
I'm thinking parabola... is that right? :/
I'm thinking so also :O Our equation kinda looks like (if we ignore some of the junk),\[\huge x^2=4y\]Which definitely looks more like the parabola equation than the circle. right? :D
But anyway, yes you are correct! :D
yupp that is correct! Great job :)
its not circle bcoz here coefficient of X^2 and y^2 are different (infact y^2 is absent)
ohhh okay!! thank you :)
