Write an equation for an ellipse if the endpoints of the major axis are at (1,6) and (1,6) and the endpoints of the minor axis are at (5,0) and (3,0).
My answer is y^2/36 + (x1)^2/16 = 1.
Is this correct?
Thanks.

It looks like the answer I posted yesterday. Are you asking for second opinions?

well, the center is at (1,0) and the major axis is up and down
Half the height is 6 and half the width is 4
(y0)^2/6^2 + (x1)^2/4^2 = 1
so I agree.

hmmm, we often agree :)
