For the equation of a vertical ellipse use (y - k)²/a² + (x - h)²/b² = 1 where a ≥ b and the center is (h, k), thus the length of major axis = 2a and the length of minor axis = 2b

"standard form" for an ellipse, means, it's center is the origin pretty much now we know the vertical axis, is also the "major axis" that means that the ellipse is going vertically, that means that the HIGHER DENOMINATOR, that is, the "a" component goes under the "y" variable fraction so "a" and "b" are given, so, plug them in => \(\bf \cfrac{(y-k)^2}{a^2}+\cfrac{(x-h)^2}{b^2}=1\)

18 is a, 16 is b, correct? Now, what would k and h be?

in equations notations, (h, k) usually stand for the center or vertex or pivot point of the graph

what's the (h, k) of the origin? that's your center

Sorry I'm back. H,K = (0,0)
