Please helpWhat is the equation of the ellipse with foci (0,6), (0,6) and covertices (2,0),(2,0)
Please explain the steps because I have 5 to do for homeworkThank youI'm really stuck on this

AlgebraPleasehelp and check my work

I'm thinking this should be
a=?
b=2
c=6
a^2 2^2 = 6^2
a^2 = 40
so the equation would be x^2/4 + y^2/40 = 1
Is that correct?

That is correct solution.

Algebraplease recheck

Could you recheck my answer because I just realized it can't be writeit's not a choice
could it be x^2/1 +y^2/40 =1 or would it be x^2/1 + y^2/36 = 1
Those were the only two choices
