    the equation of an ellipse is x2/a2 + y2/b2 = 1 so is it x2/9 + y2/1 = 1?

    This is a VERTICAL ellipse, hence the standard formula will have y in the front. \(\dfrac{y^2}{a^2}+\dfrac{x^2}{b^2}=1\)

    a is ALWAYS with the main axis (y in this case)

    If it is a HORIZONTAL one, then x will go first and a will go with x. Yes for the last comment
