Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the standard for of an ellipse is (x/a)^2+(y/b)^2 = c^2. so bring your equation to that form. xintercept is the point where the ellipse hits the xaxis. which means you equate y to 0 and find out the x values. similarly the yintercept is the point where the ellipse hits the yaxis. which means you equate x to 0 and find out the y values.
