Bobing for conics

ha ha made a mistake there =P
k for this up coming test i made sure to keep an eye out on the hyperbola because i thought that it might be the hardest in the conics unit.
-hyperbola is identified by having both x^2 and y^2 and is the difference between the two
-opens vertically if y is positive and horizontally if x is positive
-finding the foci is found by add the square of the minor transverse axis and minor conjugate axis. Like a^2 + b^2 = c^2
The rest of the conics; circle, ellipse, and parabola I'm gonna go over some more.
Best of luck guys for tomorrow!
Oh one last thing i just remembered about conics, remember the pattern i think or the geometry of the object in order to give yourself a picture.
I believe that's what I'm trying to say...
ha ha well good luck again!
