Math 12 Worksheet: Conic Sections Review


1) Identify the center and the radius for each of the following circles.
(a) ( x 2) 2 + ( y + 4) 2 = 20

(b) 2 x 2 + 2 y 2 + 4 x 8 y = 12

2) For each of the following ellipses, find the center and the lengths of the major and minor axes. Sketch a
graph of each ellipse.
(a)

( x + 1) 2 ( y 3) 2
+
=1
4
6

(b) 2 x 2 + 3 y 2 6 x + 6 y = 12

3) For each of the following hyperbolas, find the center, vertices, and asymptotes. Sketch a graph of each
hyperbola.
(a)

( x + 5) 2 ( y 2) 2

=1
6
4

(b) x 2 y 2 + 2 x = 4 y + 17

In questions 4 8, identify the equation as a circle, ellipse, or hyperbola. In each case, find the center. For a
circle, find the length of the radius; for an ellipse, find the lengths of the major and minor axes; for a
hyperbola, find the coordinates of the vertices and the foci.
4) x 2 + y 2 x + 3 y = 4

5) x 2 + 4 y 2 + 2 x 8 y = 11

6) 3x 2 3 y 2 6 x + 12 y = 36

7) y 2 9 x 2 18 x + 6 y = 9

8) 25 x 2 + 4 y 2 50 x 16 y + 1 = 60

In questions 9 12, write and equation in standard form for the indicated conic section.
9) Circle with center (2, 3) and radius 6
10) Ellipse with center at (5, -3); major axis of length 12; minor axis of length 10
11) Hyperbola, center at (-2, 4); transverse axis of length 8; conjugate axis of length 8; Opens up/down
12) Hyperbola, center at (-6, -5); transverse axis of length 12; conjugate axis of length 6; Opens left/right
