Equations and Graphs

### Problem 1

Classify the graph of the equation $$x^2+y^2-8x+4y=29$$.

A:

circle

B:

exponential curve

C:

line

D:

parabola

### Problem 2

Write an equation that states $$(x,y)$$ is the same distance from $$(4,1)$$ as it is from the $$x$$-axis.

### Problem 3

Select all equations which describe the parabola with focus $$(\text- 1,\text- 7)$$ and directrix $$y=3$$.

A:

$$(x-1)^2+(y-7)^2=(y+3)^2$$

B:

$$(x+1)^2+(y+7)^2=(y-3)^2$$

C:

$$y=\text{-}20(x+1)^2-2$$

D:

$$y=\text{-}20(x+1)^2+2$$

E:

$$y=\text{-}\frac{1}{20}(x+1)^2-2$$

F:

$$y=\text{-}\frac{1}{20}(x+1)^2+2$$

### Problem 4

Parabola A and parabola B both have the $$x$$-axis as the directrix. Parabola A has its focus at $$(3,2)$$ and parabola B has its focus at $$(5,4)$$. Select all true statements.

A:

Parabola A is wider than parabola B.

B:

Parabola B is wider than parabola A.

C:

The parabolas have the same line of symmetry.

D:

The line of symmetry of parabola A is to the right of that of parabola B.

E:

The line of symmetry of parabola B is to the right of that of parabola A.
