(i) x 2 - 8 x +8 y +8 = ( x - 4) 2 +8( y - 1). So the equation x 2 - 8 x +8 y +8 = 0 becomes x 2 1 + 8 y 1 = 0 (1) if we make a translation of axes x - 4 = x 1 , y - 1 = y 1 . However equation (1) can be written as a standard form y 1 = - 1 8 x 2 1 , which represents a parabola with vertex at (4 , 1). (See Figure 1(a).) (ii) y 2 - 12 x +2 y +25 = ( y +1) 2 - 12( x - 2). Hence y 2 - 12 x +2 y +25 = 0 becomes y 2 1 - 12 x 1 = 0 (2) if we make a translation of axes
