Please explain the steps because I have 5 to do for homework-Thank you-I'm really stuck on this
I thought the answer would be x^2/4 + y^2/40 = 1 but that can't be because the choices are:
x^2/1 + y^2/40 = 1 or x^2/1 + y^2/36
I'm really confused

• Algebra II Please check- -

I forgot to put that I think b= 2
c=6, so therefore
a^2-2^2 = 6^2
so a= 40, that' how I got to my equation

• Algebra II-it can't be correct- Please check- -

It can't be correct my equation because that isn't a choice I was given-that's what I don't understand-thanks for trying to help though

Jodi,my answer was exactly identical to
yours.
