Squaring both sides yields the center-radius form of the equation of a circle. 6.1 Circles A circle is a set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed point. The distance is called the radius of the circle, and the fixed point is called the center.

Graph the circle and give the domain and range of the relation. SolutionSubstitute h = –3, k = 4, and r = 6 into the equation of a circle.

Slide 6-8 6.1 Finding the Center and Radius of a Circle ExampleFind the center and radius of the circle with equation SolutionOur goal is to obtain an equivalent equation of the form We complete the square in both x and y. The circle has center (3, –2) with radius 3.

A parabola is a set of points in a plane equidistant from a fixed point and a fixed line. The fixed point is called the focus, and the fixed line, the directrix.

Slide 6-10 6.1 Equations and Graphs of Parabolas To get the equation of the set of points that are the same distance from the line y = –c and the point (0, c), choose a point P(x, y) on the parabola. The distance from the focus, F, to P, and the point on the directrix, D, to P, must have the same length.

Slide 6-11 6.1 Parabola with a Vertical Axis The focal chord through the focus and perpendicular to the axis of symmetry of a parabola has length |4c|. –Let y = c and solve for x. The endpoints of the chord are (  x, c), so the length is |4c|. The parabola with focus (0, c) and directrix y = –c has equation x 2 = 4cy. The parabola has vertical axis x = 0, opens upward if c > 0, and opens downward if c < 0.

The graph can be obtained using a graphing calculator by solving y 2 = 4cx for y: Let and graph each half of the parabola. The parabola with focus (c, 0) and directrix x = –c has equation y 2 = 4cx. The parabola has horizontal axis y = 0, opens to the right if c > 0, and to the left if c < 0.

(a) Solution (a) Since the x-term is squared, the parabola is vertical, with focus at (0, c) = (0, 2) and directrix y = –2. The vertex is (0, 0), and the axis is the y-axis.

SolutionFocus lies left of the vertex implies the parabola has -a horizontal axis, and -opens to the left. Distance between vertex and focus is 1–(–1) = 2, so c = –2.

Slide 6-16 6.1 An Application of Parabolas ExampleSignals coming in parallel to the axis of a parabolic reflector are reflected to the focus, thus concentrating the signal. The Parkes radio telescope has a parabolic dish shape with diameter 210 feet and depth 32 feet.

(b)The receiver must be placed at the focus of the parabola. How far from the vertex of the parabolic dish should the receiver be placed? Solution (a)The parabola will have the form y = ax 2 (vertex at the origin) and pass through the point
