34

The meaning of "a" in an ellipse

The distance from center to vertex

New cards

35

The meaning of "c" in an ellipse

The distance from center to focus

New cards

36

The formula relating a, b, and c in an ellipse

a^2 - b^2 = c^2

New cards

37

How you decide whether an ellipse is vertical or horizontal looking at its equation

Find the largest denominator (which is a^2). If it is under the x, it's horizontal. If it's under the y, it's vertical.

38

The vertices of x^2/9 + y^2/36 = 1

Vertices are (0, 6) and (0, -6)

New cards

39

The c value for x^2/16 + y^2/49 = 1

c = square root of 33

New cards

40

The equation of a vertical hyperbola centered at (0, 0)

y^2/a^2 - x^2/b^2 = 1

New cards

41

The equation of a horizontal hyperbola centered at (0, 0)

x^2/a^2 - y^2/b^2 = 1

New cards

42

The way to determine whether a hyperbola is vertical or horizontal by looking at its equation

Look at what variable is first (positive). If x is first, it's horizontal. If y is first, it's vertical.

New cards

43

The meaning of "a" in a hyperbola

The distance from center to vertex

New cards

44

The meaning of "c" in a hyperbola

The distance from center to focus

New cards

45

The equation relating a, b, and c in a hyperbola

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

New cards

46

Is this hyperbola vertical or horizontal? y^2/4 - x^2/16 = 1

Vertical (y is first)

New cards

47

What are the vertices in this hyperbola? x^2/25 - y^2/9 = 1

Vertices are (5, 0) and (-5, 0)

New cards

48

What are the slopes of the asymptotes? x^2/36 - y^2/100 = 1

This is a horizontal hyperbola so we use b/a which is 10/6 or 5/3 (+ and -)

New cards

49

Where are the foci in this hyperbola? y^2/36 - x^2/64 = 1

First, a^2 + b^2 = 100, so c = 10. Since this is a vertical hyperbola (y is first), the foci are (0, 10) and (0, -10)
