    sqrt the bottom numbers to get the lengths of your verts; and the larger number is under the major axis for ellipses

    since y is bigger; we go (x,+- 10)

    the foci are along the y as well; and they are the sqrt(100-25), sqrt(75)

    foci: (6,2+sqrt(75))(6,2-sqrt(75))

    75 = 25.3 so that can be simplified to: 5sqrt(3)

    i might got thos backwards; its paralell to the y so thats the x=6 axis
