## sloppycanada one year ago The equation of the following? http://gyazo.com/aa5eae5ff2bbdf3232f9e4ec7edcf30f

$\frac{ (x-1)^2 }{ 81 } + \frac{ (y+2) }{ 4 } = 1$

shouldn't it be$$+1$$

3. anonymous

and $$-2$$

No because it's the center.

5. anonymous

i think the center is $$(-1,3)$$ actually from the picture what do you think?

I would agree.

7. anonymous

then the first part should have $$(x+1)^2$$ and the second $$(y+3)^2$$

8. anonymous

plus, not minus

9. anonymous

oops sorry

10. anonymous

the second part would be $$(y-3)^2$$

11. anonymous

you got that ? center is $$(h,k)$$ standard form is $\frac{(x-h)^2}{a^2}+\frac{(y-k)^2}{b^2}=1$

HI!!

13. misty1212

i would go with ' $\frac{(x+1)^2}{81}+\frac{(y-3)^2}{4}=1$
