In general, the conic section equation consists of three parts, namely quadratic, cross-product, and linear terms. A conic sections will be easily determined by its shape if it does not contain cross-product term, otherwise it is difficult to determine. Analytically a cone slice is a quadratic form of equation. A concept in linear algebraic discussion can be applied to facilitate the discovery of a shape of a conic section. The process of diagonalization can transform a quadratic form into another form which does not contain crosslinking tribes, ie by diagonalizing the quadrate portion. Hence this paper presents the application of an algebraic concept to find a form of conic sections.
