Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First group x's and y's together and move constants on right hand side (4x^2 +8x) + (y^24y) = 8 Then use completing the square Factor the 4 out of x's part first 4(x^2+2x) +(y^24y) = 8 4((x+1)^21) +(y2)^24 = 8 distribute 4 back in 4(x+1)^2 4 +(y2)^2 4 = 8 move constants to right side 4(x+1)^2 + (y2)^2 = 16 Now divide by 16 to get 1 on right side (x+1)^2 /4 + (y2)^2 /16 = 1 Now you have it in standard form The rest is pretty straightforward once you have it in this form Use the attached reference sheet for ellipses to help you hope this helps
