    Equation Point
    4x^2-24x-25y^2+250y-489=0 (27⁄4,5⁄2)

    ( 1) identify the conic section represented by the equation.
    ( 2) write the equation of the conic section in standard form.
    ( 3) identify all relevant key elements of your conic section such as center,
    focus/foci, directrix, radius, lengths of major and/or minor axes,
    equations of asymptotes, and length of latus rectum.
    ( 4) sketch the graph of the conic section.
    ( 5) determine the equation of the line that is tangent to the conic section
    at the provided point.
    ( 6) write a brief (two to three paragraph) essay describing the four nondegenerate
    conic sections, how you knew to distinguish your conic section from the
    other three, and a possible application that might involve your type of
    conic section
