    The foci are (plus/minus a*e,0) where the eccentricity e = sqrt(1+ (b^2/a^2))

    foci, 4 = 4/e -< e = 1 = sqrt( 1 + b^2/3^2)) Solve for b^2

    the intercept only works in an ellipse i thought you drew an ellipse

    i think you can find by subbing in a point.. but i dunno which point

    foci, 4 = 3/e -> e = 4/3 = sqrt( 1 + b^2/3^2)) Solve for b^2 So 4/3 = sqt(1 + b^2/3^2) -> b^2 = 12/9

    they are related by a^2+b^2=c^2 as well right

    U can say c^2 = a^2 -b^2 (same thing)

    Actually, I made mistake in figures: 4/3 = sqrt(1 +b^2/3^2) -> 16/9 = 1 + b^2/3^2 -> 3^2 * 16/9 = 3^2 + b^2 -> b^2 = 3^2 (16/9 -1) = 3^2 *7/9 = 7 You can check it here http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%28x^2%2F3^2%29++++-+y^2%2F7+%3D+1
