You can use the following test to identify the conic.

  • Are both variables squared?

No: It's a parabola.

Yes: Go to the next test....

  • Do the squared terms have opposite signs?

Yes: It's an hyperbola.

No: Go to the next test....

  • Are the squared terms multiplied by the same number?

Yes: It's a circle.

No: It's an ellipse.

Both the variables are squared. So it is not a parabola.


The squared terms which are 21x^2 and 12y^2 do not have opposite signs. So it is not a hyperbola.


The square terms are not multiplied by the same number.


So it is an ellipse.


ANSWER:  Ellipse
