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

I've been stuck on this for a few days now.

I am trying to determine the X and Y axis of the general conic section equation:

Q(x,y)=Ax^2 +Bxy+Cy^2 +Dx+ Ey+F =0

I have A, B, C, D, E, and F.

I have already determined the center coordinates, but I have not found information on how to find the two minor and major axes of the equations.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks
