Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We just started to learn about functions of several variables in my Calculus class and my question is simple:

Are conic sections, like ellipses, multivariable functions or is y still dependant on x? Are ellipses just single variable functions slightly rearranged? Thanks in advance,
