## Parabolas

If only one variable in the equation is squared, you have a parabola.

## Hyperbola

If the x term and the y term are squared and have opposite signs (one is positive, one is negative), then you have a hyperbola.

## Circle

If the squared x term and the squared y term have the same coefficient (6x^2 + 6y^2), then you have a circle.

## Ellipse

The only other choice other than those three is an ellipse.
