***WILL FAN AND MEDAL***
There are two fruit trees located at (3,0) and (−3, 0) in the backyard plan. Maurice wants to use these two fruit trees as the focal points for an elliptical flowerbed. Johanna wants to use these two fruit trees as the focal points for some hyperbolic flowerbeds. Create the location of two vertices on the yaxis. Show your work creating the equations for both the horizontal ellipse and the horizontal hyperbola. Include the graph of both equations and the focal points on the same coordinate plane.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You are "Creating" the ellipse. Hence it is up to you to pick the a and b such that \(c^2= a^2b^2\). Your c is 3, hence \(c^2 =9\) you can pick a, b satisfy that equation. Which pair do you want to pick?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Penguin7 This problem is horizontal, your problem is vertical. I work for him first, you convert everything to vertical. That is it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@yeval76 If you don't help yourself, you don't work for your own problem. You are better move to @Penguin7 post and convert to horizontal case from her case. I prioritize for the students who join me on their stuff.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, answer me, pick a , b such that 9 = a^2 b^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a =6 , hence a^2 =36, so b =?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, how about a =5 and b=4? do they work?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Your pick is PERFECTLY ok. I just suggest the easiest numbers to work with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If a = 5 and b = 4, it would be the following: 2516=9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, hence your ellipse equation will be??? just plug into the standard form for HORIZONTAL one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The net is so bad. I assume you cannot access. but you know how to do this part, right? Now, move to hyperbola.!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The same token, but for hyperbola, \(c^2 = a^2 \color{red}{+} b^2\) You can create a and b such that \(9= a^2 +b^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1On this case, no way for you to choose both a, b are integers. If you choose a = 1, then \(b= 2\sqrt2\), If you choose a=2, then \(b=\sqrt5\) Whatsoever, you pick 1 pair, a and b, then plug back to row HORIZONTAL HYPERBOLA on the paper to get the equation. Good luck.
