Which of the following equations represents a degenerate ellipse?
9x^2 +4y^2 = 1
x^2 y^2
 +  = 2
14 19
x^2 y^2
 = () 
10 18
All of the above are degenerate ellipses.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, the first one is the formula of a circle \((3x)^2+(2y)^2=1\) That shows the last one is NOT the correct answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The third one is \(\dfrac{x^2}{10}=\dfrac{y^2}{18}\) add \(\dfrac{y^2}{18}\) both sides, what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope it becomes \(\dfrac{x^2}{10}+\dfrac{y^2}{18}=0\) The standard formula of an ellipse has the right hand side =1, NOT =0, hence the third option is NOT the correct answer.
