Write the standard equation of the ellipse with the given characteristics
this is due in the morning I have no ideal how to do it
vertices:(-8,1)(0,1) (-4,7) (-4,5)
Thank you for helping me
As I stated in the previous post to this question, you have a typo and the way it is written, we cannot do this question.
But I have a feeling that the last point should be (-4,-5), that way (-4,1) is the midpoint of both axes
so 2a = 8, ----> a = 4
2b = 12 , ----> b = 6
(x+4)^2 /16 + (y-1)^2 /36 = 1
