a) Consider the equation

This equation can be written as: .

It is known that the equation is in the form of

Here, the coefficient of ${x}^{2}$ and ${y}^{2}$ are $A=6$ and , which means that is, .

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

b) Consider the equation .

This equation caan be written as: , which is in the form of .

Solve for

$=324$

This shows that Therefore, the equation is of a hyperbola. Hence, the conic section of the given equation is a heperbola.

c) Consider the equation . T

his equation can written as: . It is known that the equation is in the form Here, which means

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