I do not know how to start this. There are no examples in my book that I can study.

Could you show me how to set this up?

Thanks.

**drwls**, Saturday, March 1, 2008 at 6:10pmThe major axis is along y = 1 and the minor axis is along x = 0.

The center is at x=0 and y=1

The major axis is a = [7 - (-7)]/2 = 7 and the minor axis is b = [5 -(-3)]/2 = 4

Can you complete the answer?

(x/a)^2 + [(y-1)/b]^2 = 1
