How can i identify in the graph of an ellipse where is b, a, c, the vertices, the foci, the latus rectum, the essentricity and the directrix.

Please reply. Needed for my studies tonight :/ midterm exam tom. :/

How would you draw the graph of this x^2/16 + y^2 = 1 ( this is an ellipse if I'm not mistaken) I'm confused since y^2 has no value beneath it. so what would the coordinates be for this. the same problem with this one x^2/16 - y^2
