Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You want a^2 and b^2 at the bottom, so divide 144 by 9 and so on

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're on the right track, you should cancel the 9 and 16 and calculations off a little on b\[(y0)^{2}/4^{2} (x0)^{2}/3^{2}=1\]Good job
