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

We want to know which direction the ellipse is facing,right?

|dw:1434706786352:dw| let's start with graphing the points given
Miracrown
  • Miracrown
|dw:1434706818149:dw| these are the points given to us ^ based off of these point,s how do you think we would draw the ellipse?

So, since its (6,0) it would be six units to the right of the center of the figure, right?
Miracrown
  • Miracrown
yes 6 units to the right of the center and then the co-vertex is 4 units up
Miracrown
  • Miracrown
Can we also draw those same points flipped over to the other sides?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, we can.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well, I'd think we can?
Miracrown
  • Miracrown
Yes, we can. :)

Sorry, I'm not so good that this kind of math.
Miracrown
  • Miracrown
|dw:1434707098173:dw| so now can we fill in the ellipse from here?
Miracrown
  • Miracrown
it's ok, don't be sorry - you're learnin'

I'm a little confused. Couldn't it be both horizontal and vertical at this point?
Miracrown
  • Miracrown
|dw:1434707170902:dw| which direction is our ellipse facing?
Miracrown
  • Miracrown
Well, 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

I would be going horizontal, right? Since it's longer horizontal, or is there a better way of explaining that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Horizontally-
Miracrown
  • Miracrown
That is exactly it! Since the distance is stretched further along the x-axis it will be horizontal
