For an ellipse centered at the origin, the x-intercepts aregiven by (a,0) and (a,0),and the y-intercepts are givenby (0,b) and (0,b).A hyperbolais the set of all points (x,y) such that thedifference of the distances between (x,y) and two dis-tinct points is a constant.The fixed points are called thefoci of the hyperbola.x2a2y2b21ExamplesExample 1Example 2x225y291yx(a, 0)(0, 0)(0, b)(0, b)(a, 0)4545631231234561456312y6x2(5, 0)(0, 3)(5, 0)(0, 3)The standard form of an equation of a parabola withvertex (h,k) and horizontal axis of symmetry is xa(yk)2hThe equation of the axis of symmetry is yk.• If a0, then the parabola opens to the right.• If a0, the parabola opens to the left.Example 2Given the parabola ,determine the coordinates of the vertex and the equa-tion of the axis of symmetry.The vertex is (1, 0).The axis of symmetry is y0.23415yx1345213452345120(1, 0) x141y0221x14y21
