Can someone explain to me how to turn these numbers into a horizontal ellipse and a horizontal hyperbola equation?
I'm trying to create their location on the yaxis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The problem is phsycially this There are two fruit trees located at (3,0) and (–3, 0) in the backyard plan. Maurice wants to use these two fruit trees as the focal points for an elliptical flowerbed. Johanna wants to use these two fruit trees as the focal points for some hyperbolic flowerbeds. Create the location of two vertices on the yaxis. Show your work creating the equations for both the horizontal ellipse and the horizontal hyperbola. Include the graph of both equations and the focal points on the same coordinate plane.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@amoodarya how would you translate that into text and not that fancy stuff? I need to submit it in a format like 2 + 2 /(divide)/ 2, if that makes sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0b^2 + c^2 = a^2 2.5^2 + 3^2 = a^2 (x  0)^2/a^2 + (y  0)^2/b^2 = 1 (x  0^2)^2/2.5^2 + 3^2 (y  0)^2/2.5^2 = 1 is this how to do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sent it for a submission and i got this @amoodarya "Yep, your work has to be right though and your equation as written is not. A and b are not going to be the same and that's what you have. please show the work and include the hyperbola stuff too as it is all part of the same question." I don't really get the whole problem tho, can you help?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would you get rid of the 2.5^2 + 3^2 and make it just 3^2?
