Home > Shapes > Geometry
It has become obvious that the Shapes category was in way over its head with all sorts of geometrical problems. So, the hard-core Geometry problems will now reside here, where they will fit in much better.
Difficulty: 3 of 5 Latest: Is it a conic? Rating: 4.00
You've probably seen this shape before. It is several straight lines whose outline seems to be curved. Connect the following pairs of points with segments:

(1,0) and (0,8)
(2,0) and (0,7)
(3,0) and (0,6)
...
(8,0) and (0,1)

The 8 segments seem to form the outline a curve, but what curve? Is it a circle or maybe one branch of a hyperbola? Some other conic? Does it's equation have some other nice form?
