- Juan Carlos Ponce Campuzano
Consider the quadratic equation of the form , where . Graphs of quadratic equations are known as conic sections. By means of a rotation of the plane about the origin, a translation of the plane, or both, it is possible to represent every conic in a simplified standard, or canonical, form.
