    Identifying types of conics

    For each of the equations identify the type of conic it is and list the major features associated with this type of conic Major Features Circles - Find the coordinates of the center - Find the length of the radius - Find the length of the diameter Parabolas - Find the coordinates of the vertex - Find the coordinates

    Inequality Functions Proved

    Suppose that there are three points A,B and C on a line where C is between A and B. o is any other point not on the line. Prove that OA+OB>OC

    Chart movement using latitude and longitude

    To chart the movement of a polar bear, scientists attached a radio transmitter to its neck. Two tracking stations monitor the radio signals. Station B is 10 miles directly east of station A. On Monday, station A measured the direction of the bear at N43degreesE, and, station B, at N30degreesW. Three days later, the directions to
