Answer by longjonsilver(2297)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!the standard forms for each type of conic are as follows: parabola: --> you have y and ellipse: hyperbola: Ellipse and hyperbola are very similar in their standard form: differing only in the sign of the y-term. Your equation is of the ellipse form. jon.
