We can easily identify a conic section by its formula. Conic section formulas have different identifiers. For example, a vertical parabola has a squared "x" term and single "y" term while a horizontal parabola has a single "x" term and a "y" squared term. An equation for a circle has a squared "x" term, a squared "y" term and identical coefficients.
