Concept Used: The general equation of conic has the discriminant and its given as The general equation of conic can also be written in the following way If then the equation is nondegenerate and under this case it represents a hyperbola and a rectangular hyperbola if
it represents a parabola. or ellipse Calculations: The given equation is: and the equation is nondegenerate, hence . Now let's find the value of . From the given equation we have so on substitution we get Hence the given equation represents a Parabola. The plot of the given curve is as below: Conclusion: The given equation represents a Parabola and the plot is shown above.
