## Conic Sections Resources

Tricky Question:   Find an equation that models the path of a satellite if its path is a hyperbola, a= 55,000 km, and c= 81,000 km. Assume that the center of the hyperbola is the origin...

I have a test on chapter 9 in Algebra 2 tomorrow and I don't understand how to find the focus, directrix, and axis of symmetry of a equation. For example:   -5+1/3y2=0

Find the focus, directrix, and focal diameter of the parabola. 2xsqaured +13y = 0

x2-9y2-4x-18y=14

conic sections - parabolas, ellipses and hyperbolas.  Look around in your day (home, work, etc) and see if you observe any of the conic sections.  In each explanation, indiciate what...

x^2/36 - y^2/64   Do i have to squre 36 and 64 to get the vertex and foci?

I don't understand how to graph hyperbola conics?

# Conic Sections

Conic Sections Conic Sections are figures that can be formed by slicing a three dimensional right circular cone with a plane. There are different ways to do this, and each way yields a different figure. These figures can be represented on the graph as well as algebraically. The four conic sections are circles, ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas. Conic Sections have been studied... read more

The answer must be set equal to zero and the only information given is the vertex and the focus

I've got two LORAN stations A and B that are 500 miles apart. A and B are also the Foci of a hyperbola. A ship at point P (which lies on the hyperbola branch with A as the focus) receives a nav signal...

Two satellites are orbiting earth. The path of one has the equation x^2 +y^2 = 2250000. The orbit of the other is 200 km farther from the center of earth. In one orbit, how much farther does the...
