as to which type of conic section is represented. Explain briefly how you made your prediction.
Complete the square to rearrange each equation into standard form and identify the conic
section.

HyperbolaYour mission is to track incoming meteors to predict
whether or not they will strike Earth. Since Earth has a
circular cross section, you decide to set up a coordinate
system with its origin at Earth's center. The equation of
Earth's surface is x² + y² = 40.68, where x and
y are distances in thousands of kilometers.
You observe a meteor moving along a path from left to
240/289(y – 14)² – x² = 60
y ≤ 5.5. What conic section does the path of the meteor
travel?
The meteor's path is a(n)
What is the center of the conic section that describes the
path of the meteor?
Determine if the meteor will strike the earth and if it does
strike the earth at what point.
If the meteor doesn't strike the earth then enter NAN for
the coordinate.
