Across
1.the segment perpendicular to the transverse axis of a hyperbola through its center.
4.the midpoint on a point of a line segment joining the foci.
5.the axis of symmetry of an ellipse which does not contain the foci.
6.the study of coordinate geometry form an algebraic perspective.
8.one of the two segments into which the center of an ellipse divides the major axis.
12.half of a circle.
15.a given line.
16.a line that a graph approaches but never intersects.
17.a set of points and only those points that satisfy a given set of conditions.
19.the line segment that has as its endpoints the vertices of a hyperbola.
21.a special case of the equilateral hyperbola, where the coordinate axes are the asymptotes. the general equation of a rectangular hyperbola is xy = c, where c is a nonzero constant.
23.a curve determined by the intersection of a plane with a double right cone.
24.the locus of all points in a plane such that the sum of the distance from two given points in the plane, called foci, is constant.
25.the endpoint of each axis.
26.the sum of whose distances from two fixed points.
27.the locus of all points in the plane such that the absolute value of the difference of the distances from two given points in the plane, called the foci, is constant.
Down
2.a hyperbola with perpendicular asymptotes.
3.the middle.
7.same distance from a given point.
9.the axis of symmetry of an ellipse which contains the foci.
10.the locus of all points in a plane at a given distance, called the radius, from a fixed point on the plane, called the center.
11.the intersection of a plane with a double right cone resulting in a point, a line, or two intersecting lines.
13.a line about which a figure is symmetric.
14.one of the two segments into which the center of an ellipse divides the minor axis.
18.the ratio of the distance between any point of a conic section and a fixed point to the distance between the same point of the conic section to a fixed line.
20.the same center.
22.the common endpoint of two rays forming an angle.
