The type of conic sections for the nondegenerate equations given below.

a) $$\displaystyle{6}{x}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {3}{x}\ +\ {10}{y}={10}{y}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {8}$$

b) $$\displaystyle{3}{x}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {18}{x}{y}={5}{x}\ +\ {2}{y}\ +\ {9}$$

c) $$\displaystyle{4}{x}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {8}{x}\ -\ {5}=\ -{y}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {6}{y}\ +\ {3}$$

a) Consider the equation $$\displaystyle{6}{x}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {3}{x}\ +\ {10}{y}={10}{y}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {8}.$$

This equation can be written as: $$\displaystyle{6}{x}^{{{2}}}\ -\ {10}{y}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {10}{y}\ -\ {8}={0}$$.

It is known that the equation is in the form of $$\displaystyle{A}{x}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {C}{y}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {D}{x}\ +\ {E}{y}\ +\ {F}={0}$$

Here, the coefficient of $$\displaystyle{x}^{{{2}}}$$ and $$\displaystyle{y}^{{{2}}}$$ are $$\displaystyle{A}={6}$$ and $$\displaystyle{C}=\ -{10}$$, which means $$\displaystyle{A}{C}=\ -{60},$$ that is, $$\displaystyle{A}{C}\ {<}\ {0}$$.

Therefore, the equation is of a hyperbola. Hence, the conic section of the given equation is a hyperbola.

b) Consider the equation $$\displaystyle{3}{x}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {18}{x}{y}={5}{x}\ +\ {2}{y}\ +\ {9}$$.

This equation caan be written as: $$\displaystyle{3}{x}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {18}{x}{y}\ -\ {5}{x}\ -\ {2}{y}\ -\ {9}={0}$$, which is in the form of $$\displaystyle{A}{X}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {B}{x}{y}\ +\ {C}{y}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {D}{x}\ +\ {E}{y}\ +\ {F}={0}$$.

Solve for $$\displaystyle{B}^{{{2}}}\ -\ {4}{A}{C}$$
$$\displaystyle{B}^{{{2}}}\ -\ {4}{A}{C}={\left({18}\right)}\ -\ {4}{\left({3}\right)}{\left({0}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle={324}\ -\ {0}$$
$$\displaystyle={324}$$

This shows that $$\displaystyle{B}^{{{2}}}\ -\ {4}{A}{C}\ {>}\ {0}.$$ Therefore, the equation is of a hyperbola. Hence, the conic section of the given equation is a heperbola.

c) Consider the equation $$\displaystyle{4}{x}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {8}{x}\ -\ {5}=\ -{y}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {6}{y}\ +\ {3}$$. T

his equation can written as: $$\displaystyle{4}{x}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {y}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {8}{x}\ -\ {6}{y}\ -\ {8}={0}$$. It is known that the equation is in the form $$\displaystyle{A}{X}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {C}{y}^{{{2}}}\ +\ {D}{x}\ +\ {E}{y}\ +\ {F}={0}$$ Here, $$\displaystyle{A}={4}\ \text{and}\ {C}={1},$$ which means $$\displaystyle{A}{C}={4}\ \text{and}\ {A}{C}\ {>}\ {0}.$$

Therefore, the equation is of an ellipse. Hence, the conic section of the given equation is an ellipse.
