Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here is all you need to answer this question: \[\large \frac {(xh)^2}{a^2}+\frac{(yk)^2}{b^2}=1 \] where (h,k) is the center vertices for this ellipse: (h,k\(\pm \)b) length of the minor axis: 2a length of major axis: 2b foci: (h,k\(\pm \)c where \(\large c^2 =b^2a^2\)
