Yeah it looks just like what I got, and much more accurate.  I never liked drawing elipses.  For the second problem I finnaly figured out how to keep it clean, just use the half angle formulas for the cos and sin values.

Is this works? (plot is streched a little, but the numbers are correct)

Here's your ellipse(the first problem):

Well done. Only for graphics.

you can use IMPLICIT PLOT. You have 2d euceidin plane with coordinates xOy.
For any point (x,y) if equation EQU(x,y)==0 then plot it, else don't plot it.

Well I figured out that one, id show what I came up with but I dont have the slightest clue how to show a graph like that on the computer.

New problem now:    2x - 3xy - 2y + 10 = 0
a = 2, b = 3, c = -2
plugging it in,  tan2θ = -3/(2 -(-2))    -3/4
using the reference angle from tan- 3/4 I get 2θ = 143.2 so the angle of rotation would be 71.6
Plugging that into the other forumlas im gonna get a big mess of decimals....
Wonder if there is any way to keep it rationalized????

Ok I figured it out.  Just had to plug the a b and c values into the Cot2θ = ( a - c ) / b.  Solving for that im getting θ as 30.  Then I plug it into x = x'cos 30 - y' sin 30 and y = x' sin 30 + y' cos 30.
I simplified them into x = (√(3)x' - y')/ 2   and y = (x' + √(3)y')/2. Plugged them both back into
7x - 6√(3)xy + 13y - 16 = 0. And got this for the standard form (x')/ 4  +  (y')/1  =  1. Im hopeing that is right.  How would I go about graphing that, im not sure where to start?

No the whole problem wasnt that but thats the only part I was stuck on, I know the angle of rotation is 45.  Its just a bad example.  The roatation of an ellipse shows it better.
The equation given is  7x - 6√(3)xy + 13y - 16 = 0.  Its an ellipse that is rotated, but im not sure how to find that degree of rotation

Can be 180 deg.

You have to give the full problem.  I'm sure the question isn't just, "Find the angle of rotation in xy - 1 = 0."

2006-01-04 22:22:23

I can't understand, too:

2006-01-04 22:14:40

What angle of rotation?

im really bored

I dont think im really understanding this topic.  For the problem xy - 1 = 0, how do you get the angle of the rotation out of that?
