EXAMPLE 1 Graph the equation of a translated circle Graph (x – 2)2 + (y + 3) 2 = 9. SOLUTION STEP 1 Compare the given equation to the standard form of an equation of a circle. You can see that the graph is a circle with center at (h, k) = (2, – 3) and radius r = 9 = 3.

EXAMPLE 1 Graph the equation of a translated circle STEP 2 Plot the center. Then plot several points that are each 3 units from the center: (2 + 3, – 3) = (5, – 3) (2 – 3, – 3) = (– 1, – 3) (2, – 3 + 3) = (2, 0) (2, – 3 – 3) = (2, – 6) STEP 3 Draw a circle through the points.

EXAMPLE 2 Graph the equation of a translated hyperbola (y – 3)2 4 (x + 1)2 9 Graph = 1 SOLUTION STEP 1 Compare the given equation to the standard forms of equations of hyperbolas. The equation’s form tells you that the graph is a hyperbola with a vertical transverse axis. The center is at (h, k) = (– 1, 3). Because a2 = 4 and b2 = 9, you know that a = 2 and b = 3.

EXAMPLE 2 Graph the equation of a translated hyperbola STEP 2 Plot the center, vertices, and foci. The vertices lie a = 2 units above and below the center, at (21, 5) and (21, 1). Because c2 = a2 + b2 = 13, the foci lie c = units above and below the center, at (– 1, 6.6) and (– 1, – 0.6).

EXAMPLE 2 Graph the equation of a translated hyperbola STEP 3 Draw the hyperbola. Draw a rectangle centered at (21, 3) that is a = 4 units high and 2b = 6 units wide. Draw the asymptotes through the opposite corners of the rectangle. Then draw the hyperbola passing through the vertices and approaching the asymptotes.

EXAMPLE 3 Write an equation of a translated parabola Write an equation of the parabola whose vertex is at (– 2, 3) and whose focus is at (– 4, 3). SOLUTION STEP 1 Determine the form of the equation. Begin by making a rough sketch of the parabola. Because the focus is to the left of the vertex, the parabola opens to the left, and its equation has the form (y – k)2 = 4p(x – h) where p < 0.

EXAMPLE 3 Write an equation of a translated parabola STEP 2 Identify h and k. The vertex is at (– 2, 3), so h = – 2 and k = 3. STEP 3 Find p. The vertex (– 2, 3) and focus (4, 3) both lie on the line y = 3, so the distance between them is | p | = | – 4 – (– 2) | = 2, and thus p = +2. Because p < 0, it follows that p = – 2, so 4p = – 8.

EXAMPLE 3 Write an equation of a translated parabola ANSWER The standard form of the equation is (y – 3)2 = – 8(x + 2).

EXAMPLE 4 Write an equation of a translated ellipse Write an equation of the ellipse with foci at (1, 2) and (7, 2) and co-vertices at (4, 0) and (4, 4). SOLUTION STEP 1 Determine the form of the equation. First sketch the ellipse. The foci lie on the major axis, so the axis is horizontal. The equation has this form: (x – h)2 a2 + (y – k)2 b2 = 1

) ( EXAMPLE 4 Write an equation of a translated ellipse STEP 2
Identify h and k by finding the center, which is halfway between the foci (or the co-vertices) (h, k) = 2 ) ( , = (4, 2) STEP 3 Find b, the distance between a co-vertex and the center (4, 2), and c, the distance between a focus and the center. Choose the co-vertex (4, 4) and the focus (1, 2): b = | 4 – 2 | = 2 and c = | 1 – 4 | = 3.

EXAMPLE 4 Write an equation of a translated ellipse STEP 4 Find a. For an ellipse, a2 = b2 + c2 = = 13, so a = 13 ANSWER The standard form of the equation is (x – 4)2 13 + (y – 2)2 4 = 1

EXAMPLE 5 Identify symmetries of conic sections Identify the line(s) of symmetry for each conic section in Examples 1 – 4. SOLUTION For the circle in Example 1, any line through the center (2, – 3) is a line of symmetry. For the hyperbola in Example 2 x = – 1 and y = 3 are lines of symmetry

EXAMPLE 5 Identify symmetries of conic sections For the ellipse in Example 4, x = 4 and y = 2 are lines of symmetry. For the parabola in Example 3, y = 3 is a line of symmetry.

EXAMPLE 6 Classify a conic Classify the conic given by 4x2 + y2 – 8x – 8 = 0. Then graph the equation. SOLUTION Note that A = 4, B = 0, and C = 1, so the value of the discriminant is: B2 – 4AC = 02 – 4(4)(1) = – 16 Because B2– 4AC < 0 and A = C, the conic is an ellipse. To graph the ellipse, first complete the square in x. 4x2 + y2 – 8x – 8 = 0 (4x2 – 8x) + y2 = 8 4(x2 – 2x) + y2 = 8 4(x2 – 2x + ? ) + y2 = 8 + 4( ? )

EXAMPLE 6 Classify a conic 4(x2 – 2x + 1) + y2 = 8 + 4(1) 4(x – 1)2 + y2 = 12 (x – 1)2 3 + y2 12 = 1 From the equation, you can see that (h, k) = (1, 0), a = 12 = , and b = 3. Use these facts to draw the ellipse.
