Can someone check my answers for the following questions? Thank you.

1)which is the equation of an ellipse with center (-4,2) and a horizontal major axis?

• Algebra 2 -

(x-h)^2/a^2+(y-k)^2/b^2=1 is the equation for an ellipse, where (h,k) is the center, a is the semimajor axis, and b is the semiminor axis.

• Algebra 2 -

(x+4)^2/a^2 + (y-2)^2/b^2 = 1 a>b

With the minimum information you gave, that is all we can tell so far.
