Q:
# What conic section is defined by all points in a plane where the difference between the lengths of segments x and y remains constant?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Β hyperbolaStep-by-step explanation:If the sum is constant, the figure is an ellipse. If the difference is constant, you get a hyperbola. If one length is constant, you get a circle. If the length to a point is the same as the length to a line, you get a parabola.
