Solving rotation of conics on the Prime? Is there perhaps a better way?
I would like to know if there is a better way to do this on the HP prime. Is there a built in function or something I can use to simplify this process, besides writing a custom program? It's so tedious.
Transform the equation in x and y into an equation in X and Y (without an XYterm) by rotating the x and yaxes by the indicated angle. I am using the Prime to verify my answers. Problem: y^2 sqrt(3)*x*y + 3 = 0 where theta is 30 degrees. For reference: x=x, y=y, a=X', b=Y' and c=theta [CAS] [set degree mode] x:=a*cos(c)b*sin(c) y:=a*sin(c)+b*cos(c) c:=30 then use the stored variables to evaluate the equation that I'm working with. y^2sqrt(3)*x*y+3=0 That input simplifies to [(a)^2+3b^2+6]/2=0 Takes a little more manual transformation to get it into the standard form of a hyperbola, and I arrive then at the correct answer: [(a^2)/6] [(b^2)/2] = 1 where a = x and b=y.

definitely the HP Prime needs a conic application, if I could program to the required level I would but I do not have that knowledge...

Giac has a command to find the center, axis of a conic and return the reduced equations: it's reduced_conic. Maybe it's in the public beta.
