since the foci are at \((0,-2)\) and \((0,2)\) the center is at the origin, so at least we know it looks like \[\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2}=1\]
since the vertices are at \((0,-5)\) and \((0,5)\) we know \(b=5\) and so \(b^2=25\)
Thank you

Other answers:

we still need \(a^2\) but since \(2^2=b^2-a^2\) we can solve for it
\(a^2=25-4=21\)
let me make sure this is right before i tell you something silly
yes, i think this works, i.e. the answer would be \[\frac{x^2}{21}+\frac{y^2}{25}=1\]
lets check it http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=ellipse+x^2%2F21%2By^2%2F25%3D1
i had a multiple choice answer, and when you told me 25 was b^2, it was the only option. you are right, it is x^2/21 + y^2/25 = 1
oh, hiding that information... well it works in any case
