Who is asking: Student Level: Middle Question: My question is about this equation 32x*2 18y*2 64x +72y +248 =0 What I did to try to find the solution of this problem was to graph and then I thought that maybe trying to find the equation of the asymptotes I could do it, but it was useless because the equation of the asymptotes is y= +4/3(X1) 2 and that does not explain why tho conic looks like y=(3/4) x . I would really appreciate your help on this. bye 

Hi, I completed the squares and reorganized your equation to get
From this form I can see that the asymptotes are
That is
So you and I differ by a sign, but I also don't understand the y = (3/4) x. Penny
