Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its major axis is the x axis.... i hate to assume that a and c are standard terms when dealing with these; but i usually see a as the length from the center to the outer vertex

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1c = 4; so a=8 in that case and b = sqrt(a^2 c^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1b=sqrt(48); so there should be a 48 tucked under the y part; whats your options?
