Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thank you for replying me But if you please illustrate what did you do ?? because I can't understand the equation of the given directrix why it has X and Y ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x, y is a point on ellipse (xy+3)^2/(1+1) is the distance from point to directrix so multiply it by eccectricity and on the right hand side you have distance formula .. from foci to point on ellipse hope you understand

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1am awfully Sorry ash I was away , yes I know an ellipse is a set of points where the sum of distances from a point on it to two fixed points (two foci) is constant = 2a right??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1An ellipse is the set of points in the plane, the sum of whose distance from two fixed points is a given positive constant that is greater than the distance between the two fixed points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Here we need a somewhat different definition of ellipse, Are you here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ellipse can also be defined as the locus of points whose distance from a fixed point and a line are in a fixed ratio. The point is one of the focus and the line is the directrix of ellipse. The ratio is the eccentricity of the ellipse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OK , until now I understand both definition

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah so in our question the focus is 1,1 . and the directrix is xy+3=0. Let x,y be a point on the ellipse, just use distance formula and tell me its distance from 1,1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we will use the formula distance from p(x,y) to the focus (1,1) = e*distance from p(x,y) to its directrix Right ??
