9x^2+16y^2-18x+64y-71=0

find the coordinates of the center, the foci, and the vertices of this ellipse.

9x^2+16y^2-18x+64y-71=0
9x^2-18x+16y^2+64y=71
9(x^2-2x)+16(y^2+4y)=71
9(x^2-2x+1)+16(y^2+4y+4)=71

    The last line is just wrong. You added 9 +64 to the left, and did nothing to the right. If you add things to one side, you have to add to the other.

    9x^2 - 18x + 16y^2 + 64y = 71
    9(x^2 - 2x) + 16(y^2 + 4y) = 71
    9(x^2- 2x + 1) + 16(y^2 + 4y + 4) = 71 + 9 + 64
    9(x - 1)^2 + 16(y + 2)^2 = 144
    (x - 1)^2/16 + (y + 2)^2/9 = 1
    centered at (1, -1), major axis length 8, minor axis length 6.
    Vertices are at (5, -1) and (-3, -1).

    clasifying conics 4xsquared=64-64ysquared 4x^2 = 64 - 64y^2 4x^2 + 64y^2 = 64 .......divide each term by 64 (x^2)/16 + y^2 = 1 you should recognize the standard form of the equation of an ellipse.

    what di di do wrong in this??? the question is: x-8y=18 -16x+16y=-8 i did : first multiplied the first equation with 2 then 2x-16y=36 -16+16y=-8 ----------- -14x=28 x=28/-14 x=-2 now x-8y=18 (-2)-8y=18 -8y=18+2 -8y=20 y=20/-8 y= 2.5
