3
What You Should Learn Rotate the coordinate axes to eliminate the xy-term in equations of conics. Use the discriminant to classify conics.

Rotation

5
Rotation We have learned that the equation of a conic with axes parallel to one of the coordinate axes has a standard form that can be written in the general form Ax2 + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0. In this section, you will study the equations of conics whose axes are rotated so that they are not parallel to either the x-axis or the y-axis. The general equation for such conics contains an xy-term. Ax2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0 Horizontal or vertical axis Equation in xy-plane

6
Rotation To eliminate this xy-term, you can use a procedure called rotation of axes. The objective is to rotate the x- and y-axes until they are parallel to the axes of the conic. The rotated axes are denoted as the x-axis and the y-axis, as shown in Figure Figure 10.44

7
Rotation After the rotation, the equation of the conic in the new xy-plane will have the form A(x)2 + C(y)2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0. Because this equation has no xy-term, you can obtain a standard form by completing the square. Equation in xy-plane

8
Rotation The following theorem identifies how much to rotate the axes to eliminate the xy-term and also the equations for determining the new coefficients A, C, D, E, and F.

9
**Example 1 – Rotation of Axes for a Hyperbola**

Write the equation xy – 1 = 0 in standard form. Solution: Because A = 0, B = 1, and C = 0, you have which implies that

11
Example 1 – Solution cont’d The equation in the xy-system is obtained by substituting these expressions in the equation xy – 1 = 0. Write in standard form.

12
Example 1 – Solution cont’d In the xy-system, this is a hyperbola centered at the origin with vertices at , as shown in Figure Figure 10.45

13
Example 1 – Solution cont’d To find the coordinates of the vertices in the xy-system, substitute the coordinates in the equations This substitution yields the vertices (1, 1) and (–1, –1) in the xy-system. Note also that the asymptotes of the hyperbola have equations y = x, which correspond to the original x- and y-axes.

14
**Invariants Under Rotation**

15
**Invariants Under Rotation**

In the rotation of axes theorem listed at the beginning of this section, note that the constant term is the same in both equations, F= F. Such quantities are invariant under rotation. The next theorem lists some other rotation invariants.

16
**Invariants Under Rotation**

You can use the results of this theorem to classify the graph of a second-degree equation with an xy-term in much the same way you do for a second-degree equation without an xy-term. Note that because B = 0, the invariant B2 – 4AC reduces to B2 – 4AC = – 4AC. This quantity is called the discriminant of the equation Ax2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0. Discriminant

17
**Invariants Under Rotation**

Now, from the classification procedure, you know that the sign of AC determines the type of graph for the equation A(x)2 + C(y)2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0.

18
**Invariants Under Rotation**

Consequently, the sign of B2 – 4AC will determine the type of graph for the original equation, as given in the following classification.

19
**Invariants Under Rotation**

For example, in the general equation 3x2 + 7xy + 5y2 – 6x – 7y + 15 = 0 you have A = 3, B = 7, and C = 5. So the discriminant is B2 – 4AC = 72 – 4(3)(5) = 49 – 60 = –11. Because –11 < 0, the graph of the equation is an ellipse or a circle.

20
**Example 4 – Rotation and Graphing Utilities**

For each equation, classify the graph of the equation, use the Quadratic Formula to solve for y, and then use a graphing utility to graph the equation. a. 2x2 – 3xy + 2y2 – 2x = 0 b. x2 – 6xy + 9y2 – 2y + 1 = 0 c. 3x2 + 8xy + 4y2 – 7 = 0

21
Example 4(a) – Solution Because B2 – 4AC = 9 – 16 < 0, the graph is a circle or an ellipse. Solve for y as follows. Write original equation. Quadratic form ay2 + by + c = 0

22
Example 4(a) – Solution cont’d Graph both of the equations to obtain the ellipse shown in Figure Figure 10.49 Top half of ellipse Bottom half of ellipse

23
Example 4(b) – Solution cont’d Because B2 – 4AC = 36 – 36 = 0, the graph is a parabola. x2 – 6xy + 9y2 – 2y + 1 = 0 9y2 – (6x + 2)y + (x2 + 1) = 0 Write original equation. Quadratic form ay2 + by + c = 0

24
Example 4(b) – Solution cont’d Graphing both of the equations to obtain the parabola shown in Figure Figure 10.50

25
Example 4(c) – Solution cont’d Because B2 – 4AC = 64 – 48 > 0, the graph is a hyperbola. 3x2 + 8xy + 4y2 – 7 = 0 4y2 + 8xy + (3x2 – 7) = 0 Write original equation. Quadratic form ay2 + by + c = 0

26
Example 4(c) – Solution cont’d The graphs of these two equations yield the hyperbola shown in Figure Figure 10.51
