Hi I have this question regarding ellipses. the equation is.. x^2/25 + y^2/169= 1 it asks for major and minor axis (i got 10 and 26) x-intercept y-intercept ((5,0)(0,13)) foci (-12,0) points of intersection with line y= 1-2x graph graph the equation of the ellipses after it is...

4x^2+y^2-48x-4y+48=0 what is the distance from c to foci of this equation The center is (6,2) major is 10 i think and minor is 5 but they might be wrong

ellipse - incomplete
missing something: axes, eccentricity, or something. There are lots of ellipses with the same center.

precalculus- ellipses
put into standard form: x^2/(1/6) + y^2 = 1 so, the major axis is vertical, and we have a^2 = 1 b^2 = 1/6 c^2 = 5/6 recall that e=c/a Given a,b,c you should have no trouble with foci and axis lengths

Algebra 2 Honors- Ellipses
in general x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 = 1 is an ellipse with centre (0,0) vertices (a,0) and (-a,0) "co-vertices" (0,b), (0,-b) foci : (c,0) and (-c,0) where c^2 = a^2 - b^2 your text should have that information for you. Use the above to answer this question, and the same ...

Math - Ellipses
Foci: (0,-3) (0,3). Vertices: (0,-4) (0,4). The X-coordinate of the Foci and Vertices are constant at zero while the Y-coordinates varies. Therefore, we have a y-Elipwse. So a^2 will be located under Y^2: X^2/b^2 + Y^2/a^2 = 1. a^2 = 4^2 = 16. F^2 = a^2 - b^2 = 3^2, 16 - b^2...

4x^2+y^2-48x-4y+48=0 4(x^2 - 12x) + (y^2 - 4y) = -48 4(x^2 - 12x + 36) + (y^2 - 4y + 4) = -48 + 144 + 4 4(x-6)^2 + (y-2)^2 = 100 (x-6)^2/25 + (y-2)^2/100 = 1 You are correct, although semi-major is 10 semi-minor is 5 c^2 = 100 - 25 c = sqrt(75) = 5*sqrt(3)
