Circles
Circles are a special type of ellipses- There is a center that is the
sa"e distance fro" every point on the dia"eter- .n the equation
the center is at (h, ,!- The distance fro" the center to any point
on the line is called the radius of the circle- /ro" the equation to
find the radius you ta,e the square root of r

Parabolas
0 parabola is a curve that is oriented either up, do\$n, left, or right- The vertex
of the parabola is at (h, ,!- .n the equation the h value added or subtracted to x
"oves the parabola left and right- .f you subtract the value of h the parabola
"oves to the right- .f you add the value of h the parabola "oves to the left- The
parabola can be "ade s,innier and \$ider by changing the value of a in the
equation- .f a is a \$hole nu"ber the parabola \$ill beco"e s,innier1 if it2s a
fraction the parabola \$ill beco"e \$ider- 3hen you add or subtract a value of k
the parabola "oves up or do\$n by the value- Parabolas are sy""etrical across
the line through the vertex of the parabola-

The center of the ellipse is at (h, ,!- The radius of ellipses are not a constant
distance fro" the center- To find the distance to the curve fro" the center you have
to find the distance fro" the center to the curve for the x and y separately, these
points are called vertices- The vertices are on the "a4or axis and "inor axis- The
"a4or axis is the longer axis and the "inor axis is the shorter axis through the
center of the ellipse- To find the distance fro" the center in the x direction you ta,e
the square root of a
2
- To find the distance fro" the center in the y direction you
ta,e the square root of b
2
- 5ou then \$ill have t\$o points on the x direction and t\$o
points in the y direction and you use these four points to dra\$ your ellipse- Ellipses
are sy""etrical across both of there axis6s-

Hyperbolas loo, li,e t\$o parabolas opening in opposite directions- The equations of the
asy"ptotes are y7 , 8 (b9a!(x:h!- The asy"ptotes help you to graph the hyperbola- The
center of the hyperbola is also at (h, ,!- The vertices of the hyperbola depend on \$hether
the hyperbolas open left and right or up and do\$n- 5ou can deter"ine \$hich \$ay the
hyperbola opens by loo,ing to see if the x or y ter" has a negative sign- .n the equation in
the upper left corner the y ter" has the negative and since the y has the negative the
hyperbolas open left and right- 3hen opening left and right the vertices are (h8a, ,!- /or
the equation in the upper right corner the x value has the negative sign \$hich "eans that
the hyperbola opens up and do\$n- The vertices for an equation that opens up and do\$n
are (h, ,8b!-
