For the ellipse (x2)^2/49 + (y+1)^2/25=1
List center: (2,1)
the foci: (sqrt 74) AND +(SQRT 74,0)
Major axis: x=2
Minor axis: y= 1
Vertices: (7,0) (7,0) (0,5) (0,5)
Is this correct?

major semi axis 7
minor semi axis 5
these are half lengths from the center to the vertices
vertices
The center is at (2, 1)
therefore we have right and left vertices at 2+7 and at 27 in x when y is 1
thus
(9, 1) and (5,1)
Then the top and bottom vertices at
x = 2 an y = 1+5 and at 15
thus at
(2,4) and at (2,6)
