Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm \frac{ (xh)^2 }{ a^2 } +\frac{ (yk)^2 }{ b^2 }\] standard form of ellipse if a is under the x then it would be horizontal and if a is under y then graph would be vertical dw:1439072800559:dwdw:1439072820181:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by just looking at the standard form of the equation you can eliminate 2 answer choices

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm \frac{ (xy)^2 }{ a^2 }  \frac{ (yk)^2 }{ b^2 }\] this is standard form equation of *hyperbola* only difference is the sign between both fractions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1439073497169:dw\[\huge\rm \frac{ (xy)^2 }{ a^2 }  \frac{ (yk)^2 }{ b^2 }\] this is standard form equation of *hyperbola* that's how the graph looks like

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hm given graph of ellipse is vertical right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes right so bigger number should be under the y value and there is plus sign so that's right!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my pleasure. B and D can't be the answer bec those 2 are hyperbola equations
