Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no I'm not cuz i remember a little bit... i got this: The denominator to y is 36, which is > than denominator of x which is 9... so its vertical right?? so you list the y first?? like this?? (y4)^2/36 + (x+2)^2/9=1... idk am i on the right track so far??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I thought that was a minus, it's a plus, so yes, it will be either B or D.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1At first, I thought it was \[\frac{(x+2)^2}{9}  \frac{(y4)^2}{36} = 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you made it this far, you should be able to figure out which one it is between the two. I told you that you need to be more confident in your work rather than ask for confirmation every time you worked out a problem. When I was your age, I never asked for confirmation. I was always confident in my work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1As I stated before, you should be more confident in your own work. I believe you're smart enough to understand this without having to constant beg me for confirmation.
