a. Identify the equation as representing a circle, an ellipse, a hyperbola, or a parabola.
b. Graph the curve. c. Identify key features of the graph. That is. If the equation represents a circle, identify the center and radius.
If the equation represents an ellipse, identify the center, vertices, endpoints of the minor axis, foci, and eccentricity.
If the equation represents a hyperbola, identify the center, vertices, foci, equations of the asymptotes, and eccentricity.
If the equation represents a parabola, identify the vertex, focus, endpoints of the latus rectum, equation of the directrix, and equation of the axis of symmetry.
