Please help, Will Medal and Fan!
Center: (0,0)
Vertex: (6,0)
Covertex:(0,4)
For the example given, is the vertex going to be along the vertical or horizontal direction?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1434706818149:dw these are the points given to us ^ based off of these point,s how do you think we would draw the ellipse?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, since its (6,0) it would be six units to the right of the center of the figure, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes 6 units to the right of the center and then the covertex is 4 units up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm a little confused. Couldn't it be both horizontal and vertical at this point?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1434707170902:dw which direction is our ellipse facing?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, if it was a perfect circle then it would be identical from both directions, but since our ellipse is squeeze whichever is the larger portion of the ellipse will be the direction of the ellipse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would be going horizontal, right? Since it's longer horizontal, or is there a better way of explaining that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That is exactly it! Since the distance is stretched further along the xaxis it will be horizontal
