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
equation:
(x+4)^2 /16 + (y1)^2 /36 = 1
