For the ellipse with equation 5x^2+64y^2+30x+128y-211=0, find the cooridinates of the center, foci, and vertices. Then, graph the equation.
my answer is:
coordinates of center: (-3,1)
foci:(-11,-1) and (4.7,-1)
vertices: (-11,-1) (5,-1)
(-3,-1+-square root of 5)
not sure how to graph, i know the center is (-3,1)

    5(x^2 + 6x + 9) + 64(y^2 + 2x + 1) -45 -64 -211 = 0
    5(x+3)^2 + 64 (y+1)^2 = 320
    (x+3)^2/64 + (y+1)^2/5 = 0

    Shouldn't the center be at (-3, -1) ?
    The semimajor axis length (along the x direction) is a = sqrt64 = 8 and the semiminor axis length is b = sqrt5. The foci are at y = -1, and x = -3 +/- c, where
    c^2 = a^2 - b^2 = 64 - 5 = 59

    Add and subtract the semimajor axis lengths from the center coordinate to get the vertex locations.

    I can't help you with the graphing part. You will need to locate the center on a graph, plot the vertex locations, and compute the coordinates of some intermediate points along the curve.

    It is possible that I have made some math errors myself, so check my work.
