# Classification of conics: general case

Consider the quadratic equation of the form , where . Graphs of quadratic equations are known as

*conic sections*. By means of a rotation of the plane about the origin, a translation of the plane, or both, it is possible to represent every conic in a simplified standard, or canonical, form.**Note:**The online version may present some delays.
