x

^{2}+ 12xy + 36y

^{2}+ 2x - 3y - 9 = 0

I know to use the B

^{2}- 4AC formula to identify the equation as being parabolic, though I don't understand the formula...

Looking at the equation at first, I thought you could factor it to resemble something like:

(x

^{2}= y or y

^{2}= x)

But, that's where my thinking ended (or maybe it never actually began...)

Thanks!
