Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as a matter of fact, you can pretty much do this one with your eyeballs, if it is clear that the center is \((0,0)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0should be clear since that is half way between \((4,0)\) and \((4,0)\) so your equation is going to look like \[\frac{x^2}{a^2}\frac{y^2}{b^2}=1\] you only need \(a\) and \(b\) which you are given in the question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the equation is \[\frac{ x ^{2} }{ 4^{2}}+\frac{ y ^{2} }{ 5^{2}}=1\]
